Ah, the masterful hand of Jasper Conran. A week on from sitting catwalk-side at Conran's SS16 show, I'm dreaming about updating my wardrobe with the myriad of green hues showcased in the collection (see the full run-down on Vogue.com here - it's exquisite!). Finally my namesake (yup, I'm a Sophie Green) is in fashion and big news come spring/summer 16, too. If your school uniform was bottle green, you wouldn't be blamed for approaching this trend with caution. The secret to taking this hue from grammar school to Grazia is to introduce flashes of embellishment, metallics and iridescents. Fabrics are key here - think soft suedes, glossy leathers and slick snakeskins to add interest to top-to-toe green looks. Here's my edit of the best buys available now:
First column: Iris and Ink green jacquard shell top, The Outnet, £110. Middle column top to bottom: Selected Femme green suede biker, Atterley, £190. Miami large back to bag purse, Stevan Saville, £485. Java mid buckle shoes, Topshop, £46. Third column top to bottom: Green leather culottes, & Other Stories, £195. New Balance 620 green suede trainers, ASOS, £65. Green polo neck, H&M Studio, £14.99.
