I have been meaning to try this color combination for a long time. I was originally inspired to wear it after seeing it on a friend at church. Fortuitously, Karina dresses reached out to be for a collaboration. While I was looking through their dresses, I came upon the Ruby dress in Mint Maritime. It was just the color I needed for my green and lavender color combination. Therefore I chose that dress and set about planning my green and lavender outfit.

Karina Ruby Dress Review

First let’s start by reviewing the dress. Because the Ruby dress is a faux wrap top dress, it gives the style of a wrap without any of the hassle. Therefore, the dress stayed comfortable all day! The material is a polyester and spandex blend that drapes smoothly over the body. I am thoroughly pleased with the style and fit of this dress.

Green and Lavender Outfit: Color Theory

As you know, I love color and I especially love color theory. Therefore whenever I put together a new color combination, I first research it on color theory (like I did with my cobalt and turquoise post). In the case of my green and lavender outfit, the combination used results in a split complimentary scheme. The green is across the color wheel from the lavender and navy.

Green and Lavender Outfit: My Look

Because I had been planning this color combination for so long, I knew right away that I wanted to pair the dress with a lavender topper. However, I really wanted a lavender trench coat. But alas, I did not have one. Thus I settle on my cardigan, which ended up working quite well. Although I am still longing for a lavender trench coat. I hope to find one in the spring.

Green and Lavender Outfit: The Accessories

Because the dress had pops of navy in it, I chose a navy clutch. Luckily, that worked out with the color theory as well. For shoes, I chose to keep it neutral since the outfit was about the colors. Therefore I opted to wear my favorite nude pumps.
