What better way to close out the year than with a beautiful jewel tone like Emerald. This color looks beautiful on all skin colors. It glows against pale skin, and adds richness to darker skin. Here are a few ways to incorporate Emerald into your wardrobe.
Cooler temperature calls for warmer clothing. Wear a v-neck emerald green sweater over a pair of black slacks and heels. Accentuate the richness of the emerald with a bright gold pendant necklace or a pair of gold hoops. Or try a deep green winter coat and a matching emerald bucket hat made of wool!
Add a pair of dangling emerald earrings to a cream colored silk sweater worn over a pair of dark skinny jeans. Wear with flats and an emerald snake skin tote for a day look, or switch to heels and a small emerald clutch purse for drinks out with friends!
A dramatic statement necklace in emerald green can add punch to any outfit! Try a bubble necklace over a little black dress, or a tassel chain pendant over a white t-shirt and jeans! Switch your plain black wallet for one in emerald green for a bit of good luck.
Bracelets and bangles in a stack are a fun way to incorporate emerald green into your wardrobe. Try a mix of different shades of green in different widths and styles.
Try one wide cuff surrounded by a variety of mixed metal bangles with a couple of green ones mixed in. For a fun and funky look, paint your nails with emerald green polish. Add some more drama by painting over with gold crackle polish.
For all those errands you have to run, use an emerald colored tote bag, handbag, satchel or cross body handbag. The idea is to not go too overboard with the green, but you want enough to make a statement and enjoy the color of the year.
The Pantone color of the year is announced every year, and determines the palette of the forthcoming year. Emerald is a very beautiful color and has been very popular
