Going green

From high-end designers to fast fashion, the season's must-have color is sprouting everywhere

One of my favorite things to do is research which colors will be a hit for the upcoming season. With the start of the new year being a time of new beginnings, it’s only right to add new tones into your wardrobe. 

As we kick off 2022, the color that’s starting to stand out to me is green, and one of the shades that has made an impression is emerald. Green can symbolize renewal, health, growth and wealth. It’s also soothing, which is just what we all need to counteract the stress of the last couple of years.

I love that brands like Hanifa are creating clothing that empowers women to wear colors outside of their comfort zone. For example, one of my favorite Hanifa pieces is the Miya knit cardigan dress. It’s practical and perfect for everyday use. Designer Anifa Mvuemba creates clothing that’s designed to make you not only feel good, but look great without even trying. 

Other major designers, from Prada and Victoria Beckham to Michael Kors and Bottega Veneta, paraded green looks on the runway starting in 2020, and the color has only gained momentum since. During the pandemic, we’ve spent more time than ever holed up at home, so it’s no wonder we crave a color that represents nature and renewal. 

High-end labels are far from the only ones embracing the trend, and now even fast fashion brands like Zara are stocking pieces in forest green, hunter green and even kelly green instead of, or in addition to, the staple black. 

I’m not saying that green is the new black, but it’s definitely having a moment.
