It is celery? Sage? Avocado? Cactus? Whatever you call it, this soothing shade of spring green is a breath of fresh air in the sea of neutrals that has been dominating the fashion scene as of late, and I am here for it.
wearing: BR relaxed crewneck // Good American Good Legs skinnies (on sale at Shopbop) // Steve Madden mules // Kendra Scott hoops // Tory Burch hobo (also at Saks and Bloomies) // rag & bone sunnies
In fact, I’m having a hard time buying anything else right now. If I’m not careful, I’m going to end up with a closet full of this color.
While it’s not a neutral itself, this pretty spring hue integrates easily into a neutral wardrobe, which I think is why it seems to be taking off a lot faster than some of the brighter color trends that are supposed to be popular right now.
This sweater is from Banana Republic, and it’s made of polyester and LENZING™ ECOVERO™ — a more sustainable form of viscose that’s derived from certified renewable wood sources. It’s very soft and comfortable, with a relaxed fit, and it runs true to size.
I also really like the chunky ribbed cuffs and hem, and the knit detail at the shoulder. In my perfect world, it wouldn’t have a drop shoulder, but that’s not a deal breaker for me.
For today’s look, I paired this pale green sweater with white skinny jeans. While straighter and more relaxed silhouettes are on-trend at the moment, skinny jeans are still in style, and I feel like they work better with the shape and length of this sweater.
I’ve talked about these jeans before, but in case you missed them, they are very soft and stretchy with absolutely no show-through. I have a pair of Good American Good Legs in washed black that I’ve worn practically non-stop since I got them in August, and they don’t ever bag out or lose their shape.
Plus, these jeans have flat tummy tech and a gap-proof waistband, and they are absolutely the best for holding in a fluffy tummy. They run true to size, although I’ll warn you, they feel verrrry tight when you first pull them on. I encourage you to wear them around for a bit and give them a chance, because they mold to your body and become comfortable very quickly.
Once again, I paired my white skinny jeans with these Steve Madden loafer mules in the bone leather. This shade of white isn’t as stark as a pure white shoe, but it still pairs nicely with white jeans.
With my pale skin, wearing a white shoe with white jeans keeps a low contrast on the bottom half and makes me look longer and leaner.
I didn’t want to distract from the pretty neckline, so I opted for no necklace with this outfit. Instead, I wore silver hoops and added a pair of oversized sunglasses.
I’m not sure why I didn’t wear gold jewelry, since there is gold hardware everywhere else in this outfit. I think it was an oversight, although I do think silver jewelry is a better complement to this shade of green. But if I were to shoot this again, I’d wear my gold Ryder hoops, and my Maggie hoops also come in gold.
Finally, I carried my Tory Burch McGraw Hobo. I love the size for everyday errands. It holds more than a crossbody, but it’s not as bulky as a typical tote. It has a covered magnetic closure at the top, and the strap is the perfect length for slinging over your shoulder, or wearing over your arm when you prefer.
Mine is a few years old, and its the “new ivory” color, but this year’s Gardenia looks very similar. I don’t know why the Tory Burch website is making you sign in for the private sale and then not redirecting you to this bag. Ah, technology… You can also find this bag at Saks and Bloomies.
This is such an easy outfit to throw on and go, but I think the color palette is so fresh and pretty for spring. This sweater is currently on sale, and I’ll link up some other pretty options below.

What a pretty look! Will have to pull out my white jeans. Thanks for offering non-wool sweaters for those of us with wool allergies.
Hi Jo-Lynne, this is a lovely outfit. Thank you for always providing your reasons for styling an outfit a certain way. When I saw the first pic, my first thought was that I would have felt compelled to add a long necklace to fill the space in front of the sweater. I like that you tell why you did not include a necklace. I have to admit my feet felt cold when I saw you standing in those shoes so close to the snow! LOL!
You certainly could, but I kind of like how it looks without. It depends on your personal style. I tend to keep my accessories minimal.
I’m really loving this new green ! There is also a bluish green which I’ve picked up too in other items . Love how you’ve styled this. Once again you and Cyndi are so coordinated:)
Love the green on you. I love neutrals.
What a pretty outfit on you! I laughed as I started reading your post because I had already seen that Cyndi is also styling white jeans today. I think we can say “great minds think alike!” The detailing on the sweater is so pretty. There’s not a shade of green that can fit in my closet as it relates to tops because it’s just not a good color for me. It was 28 here this morning and is supposed to get up to 68. Have a fabulous day!
Love the look! So fresh and clean! Do those mules snap like flip flops when you walk? I love mules but sometimes I have a problem with that. Great post once again!
I don’t notice that, I’m wearing them now. They’re pretty quiet.
I love that color on you!!
Ready for Spring dressing but 30 today when I woke up. Ugh. Heading to walk soon. Pretty color sweater. Looks great on you. Need to get my white jeans out soon. Loving the Spring series. So glad the comment section shows now. 🙂
So fresh and light! I’m so done with dark colors and heavy looking clothes. I’m kind of dreading jeans though after a year of leggings! Haha! Can’t wait to hang out with friends too!
Jo-Lynne, Are you in the S or M in the green sweater? I see you wrote TTS but sometimes you choose a M, so I am not sure and I try to avoid the extras of returning items. I am your body doppleganger and you have changed my life-thanks for your artistry!
It’s small. Whenever I say TTS, it’s small. 🙂 And I am so glad I have helped make your life easier! That’s my goal!
I love that color two. Just ordered the sweater, would be great for early spring when I always want something more “spring like” but still warm.
I love the color. And comments are finally showing without my having to click anything 🙂
Green is my favorite color! I ordered the sweater in this color from LOFT. I love this with white jeans. You look especially pretty in this outfit 💕
Thanks, Joan! 😘
