On your bingo card “things that will happen in 2022.” we can’t imagine that a hitherto unknown play on words has become a cultural phenomenon.
Wordle was released in October last year, with 90 players a day in the millions in a few weeks. The game was such a success that its creator, Josh Wardle, sold it to The New York Times, and it continues the trend on Twitter as people share their results.
Amid the frightening news from around the world that reached us 24/7, Wordle was a haven of normalcy for many.
With just one game a day, there’s no pressure to always be ‘on’, and the fact that everyone gets the same answer means it’s ripe for a carefree chat in the water cooler (both online and in real life).
Useful entertainment has not only filled our Twitter feeds with square emoticons – it is also creeping into our closets.
‘Wordle green’ is the latest shade that is rushing into the fashion world, putting patterns on the green squares in the game.
It is the latest in a series of green shows and collections on the catwalk, with ‘Kermit green and rich khaki shades that dominate equally in top boutiques and on the main streets.
If you are not familiar with Wordle Green through the diligent construction of a series of victories, it is somewhere between sour lime and olive, with mild warm shades, but of a lighter quality than more brownish shades.
Although it is close to the middle on a scale from light to dark green, there is room for change in how you interpret Wordle green based on what best suits your style and color.
Even with solid color clothing, you ideally want to embrace different tonal elements – giving you a decent amount of freedom until Wordle publishes a clothing line that matches exactly.
Like a hit game, the beauty of color is its simplicity. It may be crazy right now, but you will be able to wear grass-green pieces with anything in your wardrobe long after the trend passes.
We rounded out our favorite high street fashion in a versatile spring shade, so you can show off your spelling skills with a subtle nod of your head – at least hopefully more subtle than the Wordle boasts on social media.
