There’s something about emerald that for me just makes me think of couture… there’s something so elegant about a vivid emerald green gown. Yet when done top to toe with a car coat, printed pants and a striped knit, it looks clean and modern.
It’s all very well day dreaming about couture, (wouldn’t you just die to wear that Zac Posen gown?) but when I’m planning outfits I always look for inspiration in how people are wearing certain styles or themes on the streets. Colour used in an unexpected way… interesting shapes and patterns.
Despite my love affair with emerald, the fashion world doesn’t seem to be sharing in my passion for the shade. However I have sought out a few pieces in green (of many shades,) that are spring appropriate for you.

The thing about green is that it’s so fresh and springy. I’m just getting to the stage of wanting to invite spring into my wardrobe but nobody wants to look like a fashion queen in season inappropriate attire. The rich tones of these teals, emerald, grass, jade and apple greens make them perfect for the promise of warmer weather but not out of place in the wet and blustery gales we’re having. I’m particularly loving the J.Crew take on shades of green in sequin metallic skirts and exotic patterns teamed with chambray and casual neutrals.
