You may be thinking to yourself, does pink and green match? You’re not alone; this is a question many of us ask each year when choosing the color green for our wardrobe. It can be a tricky season to decide on colors as the colors are so incredibly varied. In fact, the colors of spring can be very similar to those of fall. If you’re torn between two equally matched colors, it’s probably a safe bet to go with the darker shade.
Pink and green do look good together, but there are other factors to consider as well. The darker the shade, the less transparent the garment will be. This can mean that while a bright pink dress will be visually striking, it will appear less like an actual dress and more like a bright, garish sweater. A lighter shade will show through more, adding a touch of elegance and sophistication to a casual outfit.
The most popular shade for spring is probably either light green or pale olive green. Olive green has the advantage of being a bit cooler than its more vivid counterpart, making it a great color for a summer dress or dressy casual dress. It also has the added bonus of not washing out quite as easily. Light green is considered to be a summer choice simply because of the rich brown-to-green hues it brings to any clothing. It is moderately cool and bright, but does tend to fade over time.
There are several colors that do both pink and green and fit into this question. They are mostly slightly lighter versions of green. They are generally considered two different shades of green, although some may be close enough in hue to be confused with one another. These shades are generally called grassy green or pea green. They range from a slightly rusty red to a grassy green with an olive green tinge.
When you do find a color that does pink and green match, they almost always will not look good together. Pink tends to make light clothes look greasy, while green can wash out delicate fabrics. However, most clothes in the women’s department are designed to have light colors anyway, so this pairing often works out. You can usually find a green top that will match a light colored skirt or dress very well. In addition, you will usually find green skirts and dresses that are made of a lighter fabric that will match just about any top that is a bit more patterned or embellished.
If pink and green do not match up to each other, try a third color, such as blue or grey. These colors can be more complimentary, since they do not clash with each other, and they also contrast well with the lightness of green. However, if the lightness of green is to extreme, consider using black or white mixed with your other primary colors. This may be too much of a good thing, since most of your outfits will probably need a little bit of black or white mixed into them in order to balance everything out. Since you are wearing green and pink, however, you might as well try to go all out!
If you do find a top that does pink and green match up, try to think about how it will be worn. Some green dresses are more of a casual look, and may not need much additional embellishment. A plain sleeveless top with a simple ribbon may be all that is needed to complete the look. On the other hand, more elaborate green dresses may have a little embellishment on the hemline, sleeves, or some other part. You may also want to consider wearing a green or pink shirt that has a simple tie, since ties can be quite dramatic when worn with many different colors.
As you can see, matching pink and green does not have to be a difficult task. If you stick with solid colors, you should not have any problems. However, if you prefer to try something a bit more colorful, you should keep in mind the colors that you pair it with. This way, you can find an outfit that works for any occasion, no matter what the color is.
