Kermit the Frog had it wrong. We here at Capital Area Women’s LifeStyle Magazine think it’s easy being green. Especially when green is such a hot (not to mention adorable) color this spring. Here are three ways to be green with your wardrobe. Green with Jeans This outfit is green in more ways than one. First of all, it was found at a consignment store; green shopping rules! The bright green cardigan paired with a hot green necklace proves that color on color is a trend you should try. Pairing the combo with modest boot cut jeans and another pop of color on the foot is an easy and fun way to stay comfy and stylish. Sweater by Banana Republic, $14.75; jeans by Black House White Market, $19.75; necklace and earring set, $11; ring, $6; shoes by Guess, $17.95 all available about K2 Boutique. Tank by Daisy Fuentes, $20 available at Kohl’s. Blocked and Bold If green isn’t your color, never fear. Put it in a part of your outfit that’s not too close to your face and voila! With color blocking all the rage, this shirt is the perfect solution. Paired with a pair of skinny white jeans and delicate gold accessories, it’s the perfect spring outfit. Jeans by Rock & Republic, $80; top by Daisy Fuentes, $48; sandals by Apt. 9, $20; necklace by Jennifer Lopez, $32; clutch by Vera Wang, all available at Kohl’s. Swing into Spring The second we spotted this swing dress with exposed back zipper detail, we just knew it had to make it into the magazine. With pops of green, this dress is perfect for all the parties spring and summer are sure to hold. Paired with a nude shoe and shiny gold accessories for a dressier take, this dress could easily be played down with muted gold sandals for a more casual look. Dress, $66; bangles, $30; ring, $24 all by Dana Buchman. Shoes by Apt. 9, $59.99 all available at Kohl’s.
