Lovely Chartreuse, an intimidating color to wear but when done right can be a tasteful hue to prance around in! This rich sophisticated color is a mixture of green and yellow and has made a gracious come back appearing on the Spring 2011 runway shows.
Many designers featured chartreuse pieces in their collections, and I could not be more excited as I have had a crush on this color ever since I was 5 years old, and I began to pick out my own outfits. An example of some designers featuring this color from the Spring 2011 shows include, Proenza Schouler, Jason Wu, Tibi and Elise Overland.
One thing glaringly obvious to me is chartreuse tends to compliment a large variety of shades and skin tones. I'm a brunette with a pale olive complexion, and I simply adore this color on me. Many of today's A-list celebrities have been spotted wearing chartreuse on the red carpet.
As a fashion editor who has spent the past 5 years in major magazines discovering and identifying fashion trends, it is my belief that chartreuse colored garments will be one of the headlining color trends for Spring 2011.
Take an adventure this season and invest in a chartreuse piece, whether it's a top, dress, or handbag.
You can find your favorite styles on various online clothing sites.
If it seems too risky to wear a full on dress in this color, you can always go for a print that has splashes of chartreuse. This way you are working the trend without losing your confidence.
