When I think of ‘sage’ I think of the herbaceous refrain in Simon & Garfunkel’s version of Scarborough Fair… and chicken.  But in recent times, I’ve been noticing a recurring theme in the images I’ve been pinning to my Pinterest boards.  Unsurprisingly, there have been lots of muddy greens (I’m in a bit of a khaki phase at the moment) but there has also been a lot of sage, khaki’s softer and muted little sister – specifically Pantone 15-0318-YPX (if that’s your thang *wink*).

While minimalist and neutral colour palettes might strictly adhere to palettes of white, black and grey (and maybe navy and camel for those living on the wild side), I love the softness of sage, the fact that it pairs well with the all the classic neutral shades and that you’re bound to find a variation of sage that’ll suit your skin tone.  

I think we can all agree that 2020 has been the year of “off” colours.  From grandma beige to retro chocolate brown to sage – if they’re not easy to define, then you’re on the right track! 

My sage green picks

It isn’t the easiest of tones to pin down and it comes in so many different variations and can be darker and lighter. It can almost be pastel – but then not quite! That said, it’s a bit of a chameleon which is also part of its appeal as it means the sage green trend can suit everyone.

So what do you think? Are you on board the sage green trend train?!

Thanks again for stopping by!
