      Shades of Green: 10 Pairs of Sunglasses You'll Want to Wear Every Day

      Shades of Green: 10 Pairs of Sunglasses You'll Want to Wear Every Day - JulRe Designs LLC

      With Spring on the way, (the sooner, the better!) I'm reminded that the season truly and completely owns one whole color in the spectrum. That color is GREEN. Inevitably, when that season rolls in, I start to see everything in those fresh shades as it’s a signal in nature that warmer weather is here. I love the color so much because it signifies an abundant life in harmony, and supremely good health - all ways that I try to live my life every day. My adoration of the hue extends into my business with our company's foundational logo of four ombre green leaves, each representing a part of the foundation of our organization's core values: a passion for color, a love of design, respect for our community and a commitment to service to others.

      Of course, my obsession with green wouldn't be a real thing if it didn't carry over to my wardrobe. I think it’s an incorrect assumption that this lively color can only be worn by a few. There’s a shade for everyone! It’s such a fun and energizing color for me that when I put it on, it's hard not to smile! And colorful accessories, like the 10 pairs of sunglasses I found are an easy way to wear the color to make a dynamic impact with any outfit. And adding almost any shade of green will take your OOTD to certainly not-at-all-boring levels. Warby Parker's Virtual Try-On tool is a game changer. You can find your perfect pair of green shades instantly and you can try them before buying with their Home Try-On Program! Find all of my fabulous eyewear finds below and happy shopping!

      Color Craze: Tomato and Jasmine Green

       

      On the color wheel, red and green are direct opposites, but opposites can attract and come together in a fierce partnership. That’s what my latest Color Craze, Tomato and Jasmine Green have done dramatically.

      This color combo is a natural pairing for a pleasing lunch or dinner plate. Who doesn't love a crisp, green salad sprinkled with freshly sliced vine-ripened tomatoes? OK, maybe you're not a fan of the veggies but seeing these eye-catching colors at a meal are aptly appetizing. And of course I found an easy recipe for a scrumptious tomato salad (below) that can be put together in 10 minutes and served the next day! You can find the details here.

So wearing such strong colors as Tomato and Jasmine Green is natural for me.  Shop what I'm wearing below.

      You can depend on this color combo to bring the summertime sizzle. Limelight and Sulphur Spring bring new meaning to brightness! It's eye-catching but never gaudy. Always current and filled with the promise of life at its most vivid.

      We've been seeing variations of this color duo in fashion for years. Glowy neon yellow-greens have become a staple in activewear and accessories. I designed these Lemon Tree Earrings using these vibrant shades and will always have this palette somewhere within my jewelry collections. But I'm seeing it pop up more for home interiors lately and I love the trend! I'll admit, I'm not brave enough to incorporate it into my home in a substantial way but I will use it to accent in an area that craves energy. The kitchen below has a proportionate balance that refreshes the senses and doesn't overwhelm. This highly functional room is a natural fit for such "health-conscious" colors.

      Bathrooms are unsurprisingly another perfect space for colors that pop. I adore the floor-to-ceiling tiles as a bright focal point. Green and clean!

      The color palette is so appealing that I've used it in our company branding and incorporated shades of Limelight and Sulphur Spring into my design studio. The matching Slipper Chairs you see below are a steal right now on Amazon (although not currently available in the color shown, Basil Velvet).
