If You Want to Look On-Trend, This Is the Color to Shop in 2022

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.

I can't believe these are Mango and not designer.

I just bought these last week, and I'm so excited to wear them out.

This whole set is perfection. Imagine these with knee-high boots? That look will get many compliments.

My fellow editors can't stop talking about these pants. (How could they?)

The collar detail is everything.

If you love the dress version, it also comes in a top you need to see.

Quilted puffers are trending hard, so why not opt for one in a top-trending color?

Despite the bright color, this is my most-worn top this month.

If you're not one to wear a lot of color, try out a colorful belt over a neutral 'fit.

You can't beat that price point.

Sweatsuits don't have to be boring.

This would look so good over a white button-up.

There are still plenty of chilly days ahead.

Two trends wrapped up in one dress: cutouts and kelly green.

I'll take the whole set, please.

Minimalistic with a touch of playfulness.

Add these as a pop of color under an oversize black blazer.

All you need with this sweater is a pair of your favorite jeans.

A colorful tote to fit all your goods. They'll call you the trendy Mary Poppins.
