March 1, 2012: One of the trendiest greens this season is Kelly Green. This bright shade of green is sure to revive your closet this season! Kelly green can be so many things: Fresh, vibrant, preppy, glamorous or dramatic.. It's a lively color that creates style impact but is soothing at the same time. Kelly Green is also known as 'Bright Green'

This green hue leans more on the warmer and brighter side of the color spectrum
, so it complements golden skin tones and warm blondes - and not least bright blue-eyed brunettes. So if you're a Clear
or have a dominant Spring
coloring, then you might want to adopt this color as one of your essential spring & summer colors!
However it can be worn by anyone as long as you complement it with your best neutrals (ie. gold, silver, etc.) or if you wear it from your waist down.

Kelly Green looks good with:
Lime green, medium to dark blue, turquoise, bright yellow
One of the most adored high-impact color combos is Kelly green with cobalt blue.
It creates a striking fashion statement that won't go unnoticed. But if you want to be able to achieve a bold statement without looking too much, I suggest pairing it with stark white or a subdued shade of blue.
Kelly Green may be difficult to identify so you would want to keep the general characteristics of this color - Warm and bright
- in mind when you're out shopping. You'll still look on-trend wearing any nuances similar to it.
