The day has come my friends when the colour I had always thought to be the ugliest turned out to be the coolest. Imagine that. I don’t know what’s more troubling here, the fact that sage green is suddenly beautiful or that an almost-40-year-old-woman is using the word ‘cool’ to describe it.
So yes sage green is everywhere these days, from gorgeous aesthetic in decor, table setting, accessories of all sorts to actual clothes and entire outfits. It’s a thing and it started quietly before the pandemic only to grow on us little by little until… well it’s gotten to a point where if you know fashion and you love clothes you probably want to dip into this pastel green shade.
It has a bit of retro nostalgia mixed with some teenage kind of coolness a la 90s but ALSO a lot of feminine and delicate vibes in a very pure innocent and cute kinda way.
From little mini skirts, to crop cardigans, to sweats sets, lounge sets, and blazers, or full on suits – sage green as a trend is one of the biggest fashion things for the past couple of years. And I love it. If not for the colour per se – which is – in my book cute and delicate and very hard to pull off – then for exactly its step by step growing fashion ubiquity in a time and place where I feel like trends no longer exist in their classic kinda way.
Wow that was a long sentence.
How to wear sage green in 2021?
Well you can either pick one sage green item and wear it/test it see how you feel about it, and if you love it, you can go on and drape yourself in sage dresses, suits, tracksuits etc. OR you can directly go for the full on sage green monochrome look.
IF like me you think this colour is hard to pull off (complexion wise) and style into other pieces try wearing a sage green t-shirt or a sage green cardigan or even better a sage green blazer with denim. Why? First off everything looks amazing paired with denim and second it’s a quick, affordable and an easy way to test a colour trend.
You can also go for a soft sage green mani.
The more adventurous style gurus can either rock full on sage green outfits like loungewear sets, sweats sets, suits, or can mix sage green with other crazy colours. Sage green looks AMAZING with any pastel shades especially yellow and pink. It has that beautiful, sad, delicate nostalgia that Lana del Rey songs kinda ooze. (literally just went on apple music to play her latest album now.) For braver fashion souls out there you can mix sage green with strong colours or prints. Purple looks amazing paired with green for some reason, and gingham and florals are prints and pattern winners.
It is a very soothing calm colour with a huge potential for so many looks especially those that hold some retro Americana slightly edgy or delicate twist to them.
I love it!
