In case you didn’t know, greenery is the colour of 2017.  It’s an invigorating colour, but if you’re not careful you can look like Kermit the Frog wearing it from head to toe. How can you break it up while having your own sense of style?
Try an African print. If you don’t want to go overboard try wearing all white then top it with a printed jacket or a button down shirt with all the buttons open worn over a plain tank or t-shirt.

Another great way is by choosing one colour besides the green from your printed item. Select pieces that bring out that tone and balance your look. Like the skirt pictured above, tan is the colour pulled out using the shoes and crop top.

Go casual by wearing a basic t-shirt or jeans as a staple item with your green printed piece.  No matter what you decide show off your personality while rocking the latest greens with African inspired style.
