YES YOU CAN: Go green

Fashion director Shelly Vella shows you how.

A bit like Marmite, green can be a shade that you either love or hate, but hear me out. Soft jade tones look really beautiful on all skin tones (yes, even fairer ones). A pop of emerald, whether as an accessory, a dress or a blazer, will bring immediate zing to any look. And soft green prints are both calming to wear and an on-trend favourite.
