Work Wear: Green

Clothes are not about fashion to me, but about communication, style and personality. Whether you like it or not, people judge you by how you look, what kind of clothes you wear, and most importantly, what colors you wear. In this series, I'll guide you through the most basic colors, and how they work, and when you should wear them.

If you work in a corporate environment, it is important to use colors that help you support your agenda, and not work against you.

Green is a friendly and relaxing color, with a number of interesting nuances. The most versatile ones, are emerald green (left), army green (middle) and kelly green (right). Emerald green is the easiest to pull off. It compliments all eye colors, which is your most important tool when it comes to communicating with others.

So when should you be wearing green? If you just finished your degree, and are applying for your first job, green is perfect. It gives a professional vibe that isn't too hard core. You will appear hungry, but not too hungry. You'll seem friendly and relaxing. I was a recruiter in my previous job, and it could be quite difficult to differentiate all the black, grey and beige wearing young professionals. Green will make sure you're remembered, but not for the wrong reason (also, if you're going to an interview, drop all the bling and flashy heels). Green is a good color, if you want to look professional, but not conservative, boring or dated.

These outfits have different degrees of formality, with the example to the right is the least formal. An instant fix, if you want the look to be more formal, is to wear a blazer. The blazer should not be black, because it's too harsh of a contrast towards the green shades. Good alternatives, could be a different shade of green, navy or a different color that you like. Almost every color works with green.

So do you like green? Is it a color you would use? Green is actually my favorite, and I wear it all the time. In my book, the LGD (Little Green Dress) beats the LBD every day of the week.

Though someone has created a gucci replica fake Hell Correspondence webpage, folks are still adding the names of school bullies chanel replica and animal abusers to Ai's site -- and she is dutifully ferrying the cursed to eternal torment. There's a catch, though : Those who seek revenge (and Ai's services hermes outlet ) must pay witrh their own souls. deliverable upon death!
