Jennifer Lopez’s leafy Versace number made a killer statement for the color green, steering it away from being Grinch-like to something of a fashion color trend. The color green as we know it signifies fruitfulness, life, renewal, nature, energy gained, and sustainability. Traditionally, it’s usually associated with money, finances, and ambition. We have seen this color pop majorly during festive seasons like Xmas and a decline as the season winds down because it is commonly not among the favored hues in our wardrobe. Notwithstanding, fashion lovers have made a favorite out of it, wearing it in street style scenes and on the red carpet dipped in various shades.
