Earlier in the year I came across Who What Wear’s article about 5 Fashion Colors Everyone Will Wear in 2019 but I didn’t really pay much attention to the first color on list. Named “dried sage” in the article, I scrolled past to see if anything caught my eye and inevitably headed to catch up on fashion news elsewhere. Fast forward to the beginning of summer and I found myself being enraptured by the very color I thought was boring. While I’ve taken neon lime into great consideration, sage green is taking center stage in my world.
I have a couple of ways that show how to incorporate this minty color into your wardrobe + where to find a few pieces that make it even easier for you.
Since summer has brought all of the humidity and scorching rays with it, wearing loose fitting items sounds like a dream right? Well, in some cases you can get away with wearing what seems like too much for a summer day because it doesn’t feel overbearing. One of my personal go-to summer choices is anything off shouldered. Kudos if it’s a delicate dress or skirt. If you’re going to brunch, to an event or doing a little [window] shopping at a few boutiques, this Pretty Little Thing dress is your friend. If your shoulders and bust area are on the smaller size, you can pin the front of the dress from the inside to make sure the neckline isn’t sliding lower than you’re comfortable with.
I know I just mentioned humidity but hear me out. Summer blazers are still a thing. You can be as casual as you like with a blazer (like this one from Zara) and t-shirt with denim shorts. If I remember correctly, I made a case for shorts in my last article. Although you could easily slip into a pair of sandals or flats, sneakers round out the casual feel of this look. Sometimes you just need something a little more sturdy yet comfortable when walking through the city on a hot summer day.
Here are more options that make adding sage green to your summer wardrobe easy:
