Stick to basics like lighters greens
for summer and darker ones for winter. Apply the same for the time of the event. Lighter for daytime and darker for night. Green
works best for summer weddings. A mint two piece suit

trouser with a crisp cream chino may give you a more casual look. A crisp pastel green linen suit
is a beautiful look for spring. If for winter green
fits well with wool fabrics preferably Cashmere.

for your office suit
it is advisable to go for military greens
. You can pair it with a camel topcoat if its winter time and it also makes the green
pop. A jacket of biscal bay, fancy name for mild oceanic green
, paired with navy trousers and a white shirt can give you a rare office look. For more casual look wear it with a denim shirt and a jean preferably slim cut. Lighter the color more suitable it becomes for patterns. Plaids especially look good with green
and can give you a outlandish look.
There are a lot of shades to choose from while purchasing a green suit
. Bottle green
, army green
, mint green
, jade green
, turquoise green
being some. Thus there is never a thing as the ' in color' but the color that is in style at the certain point of time. Just consider the season and the time of the event you want the outfit for.
It is always safe to go with white shirt but if you want a more trendy look you can replace the shirt with t-shirts. When it comes to ties make sure to coordinate it with the color of your jacket. Darker greens
, greys and black are good choices. It is not important to match the pocket square perfectly with the tie. White will match the shirt but you can also scale it with different tones.
being considered as a lighter color pairing it with shoes of same range like tan or grey would subdue the green
. Thus it is better to go for darker shades like black or dark brown shoes. If you want to kick it off with a pair of amazing green
shoe, it could do. Stick to the basics for socks. Either pair it with the trousers or with the shoes.
