Spring shopping: 15 ways to go green

Canada, it's time to get your green on! With the first day of spring just around the corner (finally) - with its lush green grass and leaves of every hue - its high time to unabashedly adorn ourselves in the eye-popping colour.

A cheery mix of blue and yellow, wearing green is said to soothe the soul and give off the impression that you’re relaxed, at peace and highly intelligent. On top of all of that, the pigment is highly complementary, meaning every skin tone can wear some variation of the shade.

Still not sure? Take a cue from some of our favourite celebrities.

This year, Julianne Moore slipped into an emerald-green beaded Givenchy gown at the SAG Awards, and while the fit was incredible we love that the hue also made her eyes pop.
