Everyone who knows me is well aware of my obsession with the color mint. I’d like to think I was well ahead of the mint trend, wearing mint eyeshadow (hello, Chanel) and sporting mint Fornarina cowboy boots (why did I throw those out?!?!) circa 2008. Lucky for me, mint is ubiquitous now and I can readily indulge myself with mint clothing and nail polish. Another shade of green that’s caught my eye is emerald. I admit I never really appreciated emerald until it began trending last winter. Since then I’ve invested in emerald earrings and emerald eyeshadow (again, Chanel). But is emerald exclusive to fall/winter ensambles? Of course not! Let’s look at some ways emerald can be styled this season:
I love the emerald bohemian dress Kate Middleton is wearing (she’s always wearing emerald!), as well as the embellished bandage dress. And of course the emerald accents – emerald and gold necklace, Tory Burch emerald clutch, and emerald crystal platform sandals.
