Softer than khaki and duskier than lime, sage green is this season’s easiest to wear colour trend that will slot effortlessly into your wardrobe. Follow our style guide to ensure wearing this key colour trend is as easy as pie...

The dos and don'ts of wearing sage green:

Do layer up your greens and embrace a tonal combination for a stylised finish.

Don’t go too far down the utility route in top-to-toe greens; pick 2 pieces max. It’s about looking stylish, not like you’re about to go trekking.

Do try a sage overshirt and t-shirt with neutral trousers or a lighter-toned shirt with sage green trousers and shoes.

Don’t be tempted to just throw on a khaki pair of shorts and assume you’re on trend. The key is to make it look uncomplicated yet polished, not like your usual t-shirt and shorts look.

Do try a soft green suit; it’s the tailoring update that ensures you’ll be ahead of the curve while seeing you right through to 2020 and beyond.

 Don’t constrain it to your clothing. Turn over a new leaf and give your swimmers an update in soft green.
