We’ve always associated Kelly green with the preppy look– a look we love! Whether this connotation is due to the bright, yet clean, assertiveness of the shade, or those little Lacoste alligators resting easy on the fronts of their polo shirts, we don’t know — but a little research tells us that this color has moved beyond its prep-school connotations into the wider fashion realm. Some labels – like Rada –  sprinkle it amongst their designs for a little preppy pop, while others infuse it with some downtown cool (like Madewell’s stretchy skirt.) Either way, it’s a classic.


Here, a few Kelly green pieces we’re lusting after today (from left to right): Madewell skirt, Kenzo printed tee, Anya Hindmarch Marano Glitter clutch,  Diane Von Furstenberg dress,  J.Crew necklace, Bvlgari Eau Parfumee Green Tea, Rada X Strap Sandle, Tara Matthews bandeau bikini.
