How to wear green
I have always loved the color green and for spring its wonderful with the season's change and all that. Its an eye-catching color, and sometimes its difficult to wear. Any one have any suggestestions on how I could wear it without looking like a walking front-lawn?

Well, the easiest way to incorporate it into your outfit would be to start out first by wearing accessories in that shade.
I find that shoes, belts, bags, bracelets in a funky colour all helps to jazz up an outfit, especially for spring!
There's nothing wrong with wearing a dress in that colour too, just tone down the colour of the rest of your outfit to balance it out.
And of course if you are wearing separates, it would be easier to wear just one piece in green.

I think lime green in particular is a neutral. It goes with everything. I wear it with black, brown, white, cream, coral, pink, orange...

Oh, green. MY colour.:p I wear a lot of green, green, green. Of all my clothing items, I have at least one of them in green, except pants. I have a green coat, skirts, dresses, short, shoes, sweaters, jackets, bags, blazer, tees... I totally love green, and in all shades, except camo-green (which in my opinion is the ugliest colour in the world! ). I try not to overdo it, though. But in fact, I allways wear something green everyday. Not necesserily more than a bracelet or something, but the sure thing is that there's allways something green on me.

I love mixing different shades of green...a dark green top or dress with lighter green accessories for example...

green is my fave color, so this is totally fab! I love all shades of green, especially emerald green. i love to spruce up a pair of black trousers with a bright green t-shirt. or green shoes with a white pair of trousers/skirt/dress

you can always layer green under a safer colored jacket or cardigan or something like that.

I love green, almost always wear something green. tinuvielberen is right i think, green can be worn with many colours (i wouldn't wear it with red tough, makes you look like a christmastree is you don't watch out ).

At the moment I perfer to wear green with grey and/or white.

Haha, yes, that's for sure! About over 1 year ago, I wore this outfit of red converse-shoes, black pants and a green wool-sweater, and people was saying to me "You look Christmas". Luckily it was Christmas time (December), but it was not in my mind when I put the outfit together...

And my fave way to wear green at the moment now, is also green/grey, or green/black.

i love green. all shades except lime green, which washes out me
forest green, acid green, bright green - worn by itself is fine.
i also like green with white (white jeans or shorts)
i also have a pair of green bermuda's which i've worn to death.

GREEN bcbg wrap with jeans

green dress with yellow and green necklace

green cotton tank with white jeans
