St. Patrick's Day is coming up and you must be dreading the obligatory green outfit you're going to have to that style that day. The one day in the year you have to wear green and all you have in your closet is that folded up lime green turtleneck, or those old army green sweatpants. I'm here to tell you to fear no more and stop being afraid of the color green! The color green is considered to be a tricky color to style with. Most people believe that it's unflattering for their skin tones, that they cant pull it off or they may genuinely not be a fan of it. But when styling with green, we’ve got to remember that it’s a color with a wide spectrum of shades and hues; so whether its olive, hunter, mint or camo, when it's done well, you'll have everyone else green with envy. Below is a curated list of outfits, from day to night, and from beach to town- showing just how versatile the color can be. At Barcode Glam, we’re gals who like to take fashion-forwards risks, so join in and go green with us!
Outfit: Dollhouse boutique
This hot two-piece set is an amazing mix between a light green and a vibrant olive tone. Its fun, its sexy, its versatile, comfortable and yet still manages to pull of an elegant edge. Wear it on any skin tone and with any color (I’m totally here for the rose pink hair in the picture)! Style this flowy two-piece set with our “Suzzy heels” for a glam and green night out!
Lipstick: Fenty Beauty
If you're not a Fenty Beauty fan yet (umm first of all, where have you been?!) this lip color from her new Mattemoiselle lip collection in “Midnight Wasabi” will be sure to get you on the team. This bold color is described as a wicked green shade, showing a medium-deep hue with a slight pastel hint. Wear this beautiful lippie a pale, neutral or nude eye shadow, slicked back hair and channel your in medusa.
Satin Dress: Fashion Nova
This forest green satin dress will have you popping for whatever evening event you're stepping into. Green proves itself in this outfit, as it works with any fabric and satin being one of the trickiest to style. The color is dark enough to give off a slimming effect, yet bold enough to still make a statement. Throw own a fur coat or shawl and pair the dress with our gold “Yanka” pumps, so you can slay into the night.
Camo Dress: Fashion Nova
People often relegate camo prints to being their own color, completely forgetting that it’s still a shade of green- just a little darker. This camo print trench dress is great for an afternoon transitioning into evening look. A camo piece like this, works with black leather accessories and shoes which vamp up the outfit and give off a fabulous “militaristic” vibe. Pair this camo outfit with our Black Cadence leather booties, or our “BLK” suede thigh high boots to finish off the look.
Emerald SwimSuit: Fashion Nova
This deep emerald bathing suit is sure to make you a knockout on the beach. Pack it with you on a spring break trip or mini vacation, and let the jewel tone color flatter your skin whether you're tan or pale. The velvet fabric adds an extra flare to look, bringing elegant style to sexy swimwear. Pair them with round oversized sunnies (like our “Black Beverly HIlls” sunglasses”) and be beachwear glam.
Jumpsuit: Shop Ink Oasis
This floral jumpsuit is everything you need this spring. Its flattering, comfortable and hugs all your assets without exposing way too much. To be honest, the color might be my favorite thing about the the outfit! It’s somewhere between olive and a fresh forest green, making it compatible with most skin tones. Pair this jumpsuit with our “Olive Affair” heels and be ready to slay in the daytime and night!
