Commandress Color Week features work-appropriate clothes and accessories in Fall 2012′s most gorgeous colors, including dark purple, dark green, peacock blue and burgundy.
I have friends who adore wearing dark green – and others who would never dare. Teal, emerald, hunter, jade and other dark greens are bold colors, and it can feel challenging to figure out which other colors look good with them.
Dark greens actually look lovely with a lot of surprising colors, and nature can be your best guide for experimenting. Look at landscapes where dark green is the backdrop for an endless variety of colors. Or look at the gorgeous combination of colors in a peacock’s feathers. (Pictured here: Designer Sleeves Laptop Sleeve in Peacock – $35.99 from eBags.)
If a green dress or blazer seems like too much, consider a handbag or shoe for a fun pop of color.
