Green - it’s the colour of life, the colour of nature, the colour of immortality and opulence.  It also just happens to be one of this season’s most talked-about fashion trends.  That’s right – the fashion forecast for A/W 2016 is filled with jade jackets, olive accessories and head-to-toe emerald ensembles.     

Oozing with style, sophistication and glamour, we knew this trend would be an instant hit.  Models, editors and fashion influencers across the globe have been swept away by this olive-inspired shade, the SWIISH team included. 

Here are some of our favourite ways to wear the trend… 


In our opinion, feathered and fur jackets are the number one way to get a little green into your wardrobe.  It’s the perfect way to combine a contemporary colour trend with a bit of old school glam.  Dress it up with heels and a mini or keep it casual with sneakers and jeans. 

For those of you that caught our last post on the velvet trend, you’d know that this luxury fabric is making a huge comeback.  Pair the two trends together and you’re guaranteed a glamorous outfit.    

Leather or leatherette is another gorgeous way to wear this trend.  We love the look of a deep green midi matched with a green top and metallic shoes.  Complete the outfit with a cute clutch and a pair of oversized sunnies.

When it comes to shopping for outerwear, a grey or camel coat is typically at the top of the list.  But this season, we challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and pick one up in emerald or olive instead – you won’t regret it!
