Hot Hue: Hunter Green

I love hunter green, and for Pre Fall 2014 designers did, too.  The color is being hailed as “the new oxblood” (Lucky Magazine); I couldn’t agree more!  Hunter green is a new neutral that’s easily mixed and matched, like navy, dove grey, and oxblood.

My hunter green Celine!

My beloved Celine bag is paneled with hunter green, and it’s hard for me to come up with an outfit that it doesn’t go with.  I’m excited that the shade seems to be the “It” color for fall (or at least pre-fall); here are my favorite hunter looks from the Pre Fall 2014 lookbooks.

 

Dior

I love that Dior kept hunter touches to a minimum and used the color as an accent against more basic tones.  Hunter green works surprisingly well with oxblood and blue!  I’m dying to try this combo.  The turtleneck/necklaces at Dior were genius, and I’m craving the hunter green version.  Paired with jewels and a black dress, the look is spot-on.

 

Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton used hunter green heavily in their Pre Fall 2014 collection.  The pieces, designed by the in-house team (who’s excited for Nicholas Ghesquiere’s debut for Fall?!), are luxurious but functional.  Wide-leg leather pants and a no-nonsense cape in the hot hue are on my must-have list for Fall!

 

Burberry

Burberry presented a really wearable collection of gorgeous separates, many of which were shown in my new fave color.  I NEED these metallic hunter pants in my life- how chic would they be with a leather shift top??  I’m also digging the hunter green fur that Burberry paired with ballgowns and skinny trousers alike.  You know I love a fuzzy fur coat; maybe a green version will be my next purchase!

 

What do you think?  Is hunter green the new oxblood?
