    Wouldn't Navy and grey perhaps work?

    LOL!

    I am sure gray would. Hmm, maybe navy also, need to think about that.

    What shade? Forest green? Lime green? Olive green?

    I am partial to a (not quite so bright) lime green shirt paired with light beige for the summer.

    the only green I wear is a lot of 60s olive shade...and usually with dark brown or tan. Otherwise I'd probably wear any other green with dark jeans.

    I really liked that one outfit you did using various greens. By the way, I added you on MySpace, bish.

    Pink is a natural choice, but I like a nice bright green or bottle green with anything, including blue. Kelly green with raw denim looks great,.

    I'm purchasing an olive-green casual shirt, which I plan to wear with jeans, and perhaps grey trousers or even suits.

    Otherwise, I'm keen to get a brightish green tie (a l'Hermes basket weave), which would look nice with a white shirt with pale blue stripes, I think.

    purple

    Leaf-green shirts look amazing with a shade of violet/lavender/purple tie, depending o how dark the shirt is.

    Of course, this is a stylish look that may not be appropriate for the office.
