Every so often, a new color trend pops up on the market and makes waves in the industry for the next few seasons. Thanks to the likes of Daniel Lee’s buzzy collections for Bottega Veneta, the latest is a shade just a tinge brighter than what many know as Kelly green. Not quite neon but far from forest or jade, the specific green hue is everywhere right now—including the streets and runways of Copenhagen Fashion Week. From full monochromatic looks to subtle pops of color, guests arrived to the shows (in person) wearing the trend and offering up ample inspiration for us at home in the process.
If you’re ready to make the trend your own, you have options for embracing the color in your wardrobe. Do you consider yourself more of a minimalist with a very set color palette? Take pages from CFW attendees by investing in a luxe accessory, like a handbag, to add to the mix. Or, you can go for a solid green trench that allows you to be in complete control. Translation: You have the ability to remove a layer or add one, depending on how you feel. If you prefer a more posh approach, opting for tailored separates in similar green shades à la Soren le Schmidt’s runway is a great place to start.
This color trend’s rise in popularity isn’t slowing down; the key to pulling it off is finding how it works best for you. Luckily, there are tons of references for inspiration. For those looking to take the Kelly green trend for a spin, just ahead is a curated compilation of street style looks from the Spring/Summer 2022 shows at Copenhagen Fashion Week to choose from—regardless of your personal aesthetic.
