Kelly green may have started off as a micro-trend in 2020 (thanks, Bottega Veneta), but it has completely blown up since then. I remember scrolling through multiple retailers plugging in green in the shopping filters trying to find the perfect item, and now there's almost too much to choose from in the shade. The market is filled with sweaters, handbags, and even shoes—there's no shying away from the standout hue. My obsession with the color runs strong, so I was more than happy to take a deep dive into the internet and find the best kelly-green fashion items.

From designer investments to cheap thrills, the shopping list below is a fun one. Whether you're all for saturated shades or want to incorporate a pop of color into your neutral 'fits, there's a find for you. I'm not going to lie. I already own a few of the pieces and have added a few more to my cart while researching (sorry not sorry). Act quick—I have a feeling many will sell out soon.

After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
