Style-Delights: How To Wear The Color Chartreuse

May 1, 2013

How To Wear The Color Chartreuse

Not green, not yellow, not quite neon, almost lime, but not really! The color of the wet leaves that just barely sprouted the day before, the color of the green apple just before it is ready to be picked, the color sophisticated and playful at he same time! Chartreuse is as much fun to say as it is to wear or look at. I fell in love with this color all over again when I saw Carey Mulligan in her Gatsby avatar in a chartreuse velvet gown on the cover of Vogue in April issue!
