From sage to apple: how to pack in your on-trend greens.

Every tone in the green spectrum has graced the fashion runways of AW21. There were apple tones at Ganni, deep forest vibes at Alberta Ferretti – and everything else in-between, so long as it was green. The good news is that there is a hue for every style chameleon, whether you go for a neutral khaki paired with tan accents for a luxe classic look or acid Crayola brights for an on-trend take. Look for tactile textures including cord, velvet and tweed for a seasonal twist. Here we round up a dozen items to inspire you to go green this autumn.

Peacock Velvet Shrug, £189


An easy-to-wear wardrobe hero that will instantly update and elevate a simple tee and jeans. Shop it here.

Needlecord shirt dress, £170


In deepest sycamore, this shirt dress from Toast exudes the brand’s signature cosy vibe. Pair with merino tights, Grenson boots and a slouchy knit cardi for a relaxed, autumnal look. Shop it here.

Yvonne emerald green tank top, £100

Kemi Telford

Combining two of the season’s hottest hues – emerald green and fuschia pink – Kemi Telford’s 100 per cent cotton knitted tank is just the thing to get more wear out of your print dresses as the mercury falls. Shop it here.

Clarence Velvet Suit: Blazer £110; Trousers, £69.95


One for the fashion confident, a head-to-toe velvet suit in rather apt peacock will certainly get you noticed. Wear with a ditsy print shirt that picks out the same green hues, or pair with a statement graphic tee and trainers for a cool take on a classic two-piece. Shop them here.

Track Pants, £160

Billie Quilted Jacket, £229

Alexa Chung x Barbour

It’s no surprise that Alexa Chung’s designs for Barbour hit the double zeitgeist by dint of pairing the season’s hottest khaki hue with a quilted silhouette.

Crown Merino Wool Knitted Dress, £235


Another double-whammy in the trend stakes is this chartreuse number from Staud. Knitted dresses are another key trend for autumn; pair with chunky-soled Chelsea boots for a triple threat. Shop it here.

An olive-green tweed jumpsuit is not for the faint hearted, but plump for this leggy beauty from Sezane and you’ll instantly up the cool French girl stakes.
