I believe the color I want to wear that I haven’t worn (as per my Vintage New Year’s Resolution for March) is a color close to chartreuse. I see items about the right hue called spring green, lemon-lime, acid green, absinthe green, poison green. Maybe bright peridot. I call it zing green.

I know some of you are cringing. Chartreuse is a tricky color, and has to be the right shade. Here are some vintage items I spotted that are in the ballpark both for their colors and for styles I like. You can find these in my Zing Green favorites on Etsy.
It turns out this color is making a bit of a comeback in fashion this spring.
