Lime green’s more sophisticated sister is this year’s must-wear colour. Here’s how we’re doing it
There’s something reassuringly competent-seeming about wide-leg trousers cut in a sturdy fabric. Worn with a classic tee or button-down Oxford shirt, these sage green corduroy trews project a Katharine Hepburn-esque mix of elegance, intelligence and practicality: we can imagine someone in this outfit hoisting themselves capably over a garden wall as much as we can imagine her delivering an impassioned lecture at a fancy university. In other words, they’re entirely aspirational. £35, Monki
Fun fact: we have William Shakespeare to thank for the term ‘green-eyed monster’. The Bard first linked envy to the colour in 1596’s The Merchant of Venice, in which Portia talks about “green-eyed jealousy”. (He didn’t refer explicitly to the green-eyed monster until Othello in 1604.) Feel free to wheel out those literary titbits when people compliment these classic sage shades, which is likely to happen preeeetty often. £28, Fat Face
Here’s what we really like about sage: it’s got so much going for it. It suits all skin tones. It looks great with every neutral you already own. And it’s suitable for all manner of professions. Take this jacket, for example. Just like the aforementioned trousers, it’s both chic and utilitarian – a little bit ‘oh, hello, you’ve just disturbed me from my job as a car mechanic in a Wes Anderson film’. £129, Atterley
Look, we all know that satin midi skirts are so In Right Now. But if you’re looking for an alternative to the ubiquitous leopard print, may we direct your attention to this supple sage number? The swingy cut makes it look much more expensive than it is, and the low-key green will go with anything (think of it as a hardworking neutral à la black or navy). You could wear it daily, and you’ll probably want to. £65, & Other Stories
Six years ago, this deputy editor was studying in the US, and remembers being surprised that “all the sorority girls were wearing these dad-on-a-hike sandals”. Friends, those sandals were Tevas, the shoes currently gracing the feet of fashion editors and influencers worldwide. According to Stylist’s fashion news editor Billie Bhatia, they’re the natural next step for those who embraced 90s dad trainers and Birkenstocks – and they’re exquisitely comfy. £78, Free People ● Words by Moya Crockett
Looking for a timeless tea dress? Now you can try on beautiful pieces from an iconic online brand IRL
You might have seen super-cool, ethically-minded Faithfull the Brand on your Instagram feed or favourite online shop, but have you ever tried one of their lovely pieces on? If not, you’re in luck; its first UK store experience has just launched in Selfridges and you can do exactly that.
“The go-to from this It brand is the formidable tea dress,” explains Stylist’s fashion editor Polly Knight. “The vintage-inspired shape works for all body shapes, and can be worn all year round – from warm-weather weddings with barely-there sandals to biker boots and a leather jacket for wintery weekends with pals. The style will never date, nor will the ditsy prints, so consider cost per wear and you’re in for the win.” Our current favourites? The cool Marta (£170) and effortlessly summery Anna (£145) dresses. The Faithfull The Brand pop-up runs at Selfridges London, Oxford Street, W1U until 31 August
A cult bridal brand has released its first ever line of jewellery – and it’s perfect for every day, not just the big one
Their boho and vintage-inspired wedding dresses have made Belle & Bunty a go-to for brides-to-be. But whether you’re getting hitched or not, you can get a slice of that dreamy pie via their new collab with jewellery brand Muru. Inspired by the founders’ travels to India, the delicate pieces feature bell embellishments and Paisley-shaped charms. Designed to be the kind of jewellery you never take off, the line of silver and gold necklaces, anklets and bracelets are the kind of long-term commitment we are so ready to make. From £32, Muru ● Words by Naomi Joseph
