If you thought you'd never wear an emerald dress, a pair of jade slacks or spinach pumps, think again.
Embrace this earthy tone and you'll revitalize your wardrobe in the process. All the inspiration you need is right here.
Wear a little
If you're truly colour-phobic, try incorporating small hits of green accessories. They don't need to match; in fact, they shouldn't! Varying the shades will give your look more dimension. Feeling confident? Try green slacks—we chose a rich forest-green shade.
Wear a lot
Elegant and polished, a look dominated by emerald green ensures that all eyes will be on you—without being showy about it! Increase the luxe factor by adding texture with nubby fabrics such as tweed, faux fur or fringe.
Basics such as black, white and petal pink complement green beautifully. For a bolder contrast, experiment with oxblood leather, houndstooth and buttermilk.
