I go to back to green, like I always do. Besides my love for leopard prints, dark green is my go-to color. No matter what the dark green shade is, whether it is in the cool or warm color spectrum, I love them all.
One of the countless dark green posts that I’ve written over the years featured a dark green hooded coat that was worn by the stylish Sára Sošková and her outfit was posted back in January 2013. This very look is still trending on Pinterest.
The very same year, emerald green was anointed by Pantone as the color that you’d wanted to be caught wearing no matter what as it was the color. Guess what, dark green is still hot and relevant even as 2014 is wrapping up. Sorry, radiant orchid you have certainly been overshadowed. While pale pastels can be inserted generously into a cold-season friendly wardrobe for the monsoon, fall and winter, darker colors cannot be rid off and such is the case with shades of dark green.
Amongst the many shades of dark green that have been listed on Wikipedia through distinct color coordinates, UP forest green, Sacramento state green, rifle green, midnight green, MSU green, hunter green, Castleton green, bottle green, army green and moss green are just some of the few interesting names ascribed to the very much loved ‘dark green’ color.
My favorite moody green encompasses any dusty dark green (the military kind), khaki green with dusty brown undertone and mossy green with cool undertone. These dark green shades are then best paired with black, gray, navy and brown for the ultimate dark and broody look.
