Kermit the Frog, a popular puppet character from US kids show Sesame Street, is probably most well-known for saying, “It’s not easy being green.” Well, our famous frog friend won’t have to worry much longer! It seems that the color green is coming back in style in 2020.
Based on fashion collections made for spring/summer 2020, it is clear that major brands have been inspired by nature’s beauty. The new designs include a variety of leaf prints and floral fashion.
Models wore dresses covered in a leafy-green print. These elegant dresses were perfectly paired with shoes and accessories inspired by tropical flowers. At Versace’s fashion show in Milan, US actress Jennifer Lopez closed the show in a remake of the jungle print dress she wore to the Grammy Awards 20 years ago. The dress certainly wowed the crowd, bringing back memories of the famous gown that helped to create Google’s image search function.

This new trend in seeing the color green as fashionable shouldn’t come as a surprise, though. The popularity of the color has actually been growing for a while now. In 2017, Pantone named Greenery its color of the year as a symbol of new beginnings. Also, with an increased focus on the environment, designers and fashion brands are trying to make their clothes more eco-friendly and sustainable.
Green is a strong fashion trend for 2020 and it seems like it is here to stay. According to the famous Dutch trend forecaster, Li Edelkoort, green will be a major color of the decade. She believes the new “Green Wave” is linked to a hunger for nature. “The need for green is so powerful that it will turn around fashion and design without any doubt, … it is impossible to ignore,” Edelkoort writes on her company website describing the new trend.
There is much more to green than it being just a color. Edelkoort continues, “But maybe the most important thing about green is its capacity to bring joy.” Maybe it’s easier to be green than Kermit originally thought.
