Colors carry their own meanings, and they’re especially symbolic when used in fashion—what could be more meaningful than wearing statements on your body that you carry throughout your day? Maybe you have no idea what connotations are associated with the colors you’ve been wearing, but you doubt anyone looks at your color choices and sees elaborate messages there.
Well, regardless of whether anyone recognizes the meaning behind the color of your dress, your outfit still exudes a feeling that’s recognizable to others. Dressing with color meanings in mind can give you a secret confidence; you’re choosing what mood and message you want to step into the day with. When you wear red to a business meeting, you exude a message of power and passion that others can’t ignore. When you wear yellow on a first date, you choose to reflect positivity and optimism, open to a fresh beginning no matter how the date goes. And when you wear dark green, you radiate balance, success, energy, peace, and healthy growth.
Dark green reflects elegance for its jewel tone splendor. Green is also the color of freshness and life. Therefore, there’s no better way to wear a green dress than to wear a sustainably made one that helps you love the planet. Reformation has a gorgeous collection of dark green dresses that exude their deeper messages and were created through sustainable practices. Let’s look at some examples of the dark green dress that showcase the meanings behind the color—through the ambiance they foster and the sustainability impacts they’ve had. Who would you be in these dresses? Let’s see.
The Lissa Dress
It’s easy to see how a deep emerald green shade radiates balance and easy confidence. When you wear this full skirted dress with strapless bodice, you can’t help but appear effortlessly stylish. It’s due to the calming color and the way you carry yourself with ease while wearing this dress. Much of your relaxed state comes from the knowledge that you’re dressed in organic cotton; that means your dress was made without genetically modified seeds, reduced the amount of chemicals used in germination, and acted as a natural pesticide control to help sustain the land where it grew. Talk about a message of healthy growth!

There’s no kind of success like strong self-love and gratitude for the good things in your life. While you look like the portrait of glam, you care much more about the impact your life has on the world, which is why you chose to wear this non-stretch velvet that saved 8 lbs of carbon dioxide and 5 gallons of water in production and creation.
