What: Textured green cable knit sweater and duffel coat both Whistles, Skirt by J.Crew, Bag by Alice + Olivia (c/o) & Shoes by Kurt Geiger (c/o)

Where: Shopping in London.

I very nearly called this post “50 Shades of Green” and then remembered, somewhat embarrassingly, that I’d already made that oh so hilarious pun about a year ago… Shame on me. So, instead I opted for “Texture Blend”, a more accurate if infinitely duller title. I do adore pink and it may make the boys wink but green is and has always been my favourite colour. Suffice to say, I own clothes in every shade from moss, hunter, forest and emerald to palest mint and even eye-offending, neon highlighter hues. A couple of weeks ago I decided I wanted to a variety of my favourite green garments at once but wanted to do so without looking like a human fern. The trick, I think, to achieving this is a combination of tonal colour blocking and contrasting textures. A chunky Whistles cable knit takes the evening edge of my beloved J.Crew jacquard mini and the forest green (also Whistles) duffel coat provides a perfect matching-yet-not coverup. Then I added the basically catching Alice + Olivia calfhair handbag because I’ve always thought that if you’re going to do something you may as well go the whole hog!

What do you think of my texture experiment? Would you try it yourself?

Love Ella. X

    Green is my favorite colour, too 😉 I also collect the color in few shades, yet never wear them at once. Thank you for the styling tips.. and look at you sporting these green hues fabulously (with texture mixing), really made me wanting to run to my wardrobe, and try it out myself! 😉
    Btw, love the shoes 🙂
