Rihanna’s Green Top Is A Smart Way To Wear 2019’s Biggest Color Trend

Share

Despite having only spanned two weeks, a few 2019 trends have already been dubbed up-and-coming. Retro-inspired pieces like oversized suiting and statement sneakers will absolutely carry over from last year, and a certain slimy shade has inched its way into the fashion domain. Rihanna's green top is an easy, understated way to venture into the world of neon without taking it too far.

The music mogul was photographed while out in New York City on Tues. wearing a not-so-subtly colored top. The bold piece, by Maison Margiela, was actually a full-on mesh bodysuit. In lieu of sporting the see-through staple all on its own, Rihanna toned it down by layering it under an oversized black blazer with simple, black jeans. Likely striving to let the lime-green leotard remain the statement, she finished off the look with a series of other black pieces including suede, knee-high boots, a croc-effect mini bag, and massive sunglasses.

Although adventurous outfit formulas have become commonplace in the 30-year-old's wardrobe, this softened look is easily wearable for anyone, regardless of personal style or taste.

Kendall Jenner tried the trend at her family's annual Christmas Eve party when she wore a striking, floor-length gown in neon green, straying from her family's neutral color scheme. Meanwhile, other notable names like Hailey Baldwin, Ashley Graham, and Blake Lively have also given it a go in recent months.

As made evident by the circle of celebrities who have tackled the trendy color so far, this distinct hue is here to stay. If a bright-green dress paired with slime-colored heels seems out of reach for your next dinner party, try a more modest take on the craze. Make your green piece pop by pairing it with black, gray, white, denim, or even khaki. The neutral tones will offset your statement piece to create an outfit that's both flashy and refined.
