what wearing green says about you

Last updated on March 28, 2021

Green…the color of hope, health and luck. For many of us, we think of nature’s bounty from grass to trees to the good-for-us food we eat. It nourishes our bodies and gives us the air we breathe through photosynthesis. Green sits right in-between yellow and blue in the visible spectrum and is considered a secondary color since yellow (sun) and blue (water) create green (grass.)

Depending on it’s chroma and color personality, it can go from deep forest green to army green and olive to grass green, sage or even mint green. There are lots of varieties from cooler emerald greens to warmer yellow-greens.

It’s nature’s neutral and a great color to add to your core wardrobe. (I offer four neutral palettes which include the right green for you based on if you are Warm, Cool, Silver-Warm or Silver-Cool.)

green for the wardrobe and home

Along with being a great neutral, green is wonderful to add to your wardrobe or home. It pairs beautifully with denim/navy, blue, aqua, tan, white/ivory, and gray or black.

For a peaceful home office, try mint green. Add a green accessory such as jewelry, a scarf, tote or shoes to add a pop of color….green brings life and hope and helps you feel connected to the planet (no wonder it’s used for eco-friendly themes.)

As shown in the picture above, there’s lots of fun ways to add green to your home and wardrobe.

So, what does wearing green say about you?

 It *could* mean you are celebrating St. Patty’s Day, the color of the ‘Emerald Isle’ (aka Ireland.)  But, in many countries, it could convey that you are full of life, healthy, and/or environmentally aware…all great meanings in my book.

In the U.S. it also stands for luck and money so it could be a great color to wear when you’re asking for that raise or investment.

In addition, research has shown that green is the most restful color to the eyes…we are refreshed and soothed when we surround ourselves with green and it is a wonderful color to have around for concentration or any sedentary task.
