Everyone who loves fashion loves experimenting with trends. While different types of garments like sportswear have been trending, every now and then a colour or a print will explode as a trend. The hottest colour trend for 2019 is the colour lime green. You might have noticed the colour all over the internet with celebrities and brands experimenting with the colour. So what is this colour all about? Let’s find out!
Lime green is a neon hue, super bright and eye-catching. The colour itself screams for attention and if you are wearing it, you are definitely going to turn heads. And even though the colour is so bright, it suits every skin tone. Experimenting with trends gives me a whole lot of confidence and I am sure you feel the same way as well. So join me on a trend trip and try out this colour!
First up, let’s have a look at red-carpet looks that used this colour. I am sure you will feel inspired to try it!
Deepika Padukone for Cannes 2019
Our favourite Bollywood star has made yet another striking appearance on the Cannes red carpet. Deepika looks amazing in this huge frilly lime green gown by Giambattista Valli. I love how she uses a satin turban in a baby pink colour as an accessory instead of jewelry. The two colour complement each other really well.
Sonam Kapoor for Cannes 2015
Our original fashionista wore this shade for Cannes 2015. Sonam experimented with the colour before it became a trend. She is seen here wearing a feathered voluminous gown by Elie Saab. She matches the lime colour with hot pink lips and earrings with a sleek hairdo.
Freida Pinto for Cannes 2012
Freida also stuns on the red carpet in this lace top and Swarovski-embellished skirt by Versace. She has accessorised the bold look with nude-gold shoes and clutch.
You see how the striking colour helps to make a bold statement. Now let’s take a look at how you can wear this colour in non-red carpet moments!
Ethnic wear does not have to be boring. Infact, it is one of the greatest clothing areas to experiment with. India is a colourful country and our ethnic wear is full of beautiful colours and prints. So here’s how you can wear the lime green colour in ethnic wear.
Got a wedding to attend? Take cue from Alia Bhatt and Kriti Sanon and go with a lime green lehenga. You can go with silver work details like Alia or intricate embroidery work like Kriti. Pair it with a statement necklace like both girls did. Keep your makeup subtle with natural colours to avoid clashing with the colour.
Ghararas are making a comeback this season. Wear a lime green gharara with colourful embroidery like Sara Ali Khan. This look is perfect for all the youngsters who want to make a statement with their outfit without looking too mature.
What is ethnic wear without a mention of our greatest treasure – saree? Take a look at how Deepika wears a lime green saree with hot pink border.
