How to wear army green (or my new favourite colour combination)
Serendipity. There I was thinking about different ways to wear army green when up popped Violeta Sanchez the actress, model and former Yves Saint Laurent muse in this lovely colour combination. Sanchez worked with Yves Saint Laurent and Helmut Newton in the late seventies and eighties and I spotted this picture of her as I whizzed through & Other Stories the other day (older model radar on high alert. Always).
Previously at That’s Not My Age Mansions: a last-minute clothes swap prior to a meeting (when I decided dark denim jeans weren’t smart enough) ended in the surprisingly chic pairing of a navy silk shirt and military green pants. Oh hello, favourite new colour combination…
Army green is a year-round style staple and I like the seventies feel when teamed with shades of blue. For a brighter bet, fuchsia works like a dream. Thank you, Ralph Lauren:
