Fresh, leafy, lush, verdant. These are some of the words that come to mind when you think of the color green. Associated with peace, fertility and growth, or even the current raging trend of cottagecore that has got the internet in a chokehold, this earthy, versatile tone revitalizes your wardrobe with a pop of color like no other, and is the go-to shade to grab as Egyptian actor and former Vogue Arabia cover star Yasmine Sabri proved during her recent appearance in Lake Como, Italy. To celebrate Cartier’s new high jewelry collection, Sixième Sens par Cartier, the star opted for an off-the-shoulder emerald gown by Lebanese designer Nicolas Jebran.
While there are plenty of colors making a comeback this year, green is simply too hard to ignore. You can spot it in the spring collections of designers including Bottega Veneta, The Attico, and Balenciaga in a range of shades from Kelly green to bold, electric hues.
But, how familiar does reaching out for a deep emerald green gown sound right before heading out for sunset drinks or fancy brunch?
