Fall Fashion: 5 Ways to Style Emerald

4 Oct

Myself and some of my blogger buddies have all come together to give you some tips on how to rock this fall’s biggest trends. We’re starting this series with Pantone’s color of the year, and also one of the most popular colors on the fall 2013 runways: emerald green.

I love the richness of jewel tones in general, and their deep intensity makes them perfect for fall. Emerald green is a new vibrant addition to fall wardrobes that leans away from traditionally warmer tones, while still capturing the feel of the season.

Here are some of our favorite tips on how to incorporate emerald into your wardrobe:
1. Dress up emerald with luxurious details like leather and sparkle.
2. Pair emerald pieces with bold black and white prints to add interest to an outfit while letting color pop.
3. Don’t be afraid to layer a sweater (or top) over a more summery emerald piece to make it appropriate for fall.
4. Wear emerald elements with other rich textures that complement the opulence of the color.

Top: Levi’s (similar)
Skirt: H&M
Scarf: Knit by yours truly (pattern here)
Belt: Unknown (similar)

Here I used my chunky emerald scarf to turn a basic outfit into one that really embodies fall. I then added an edgy belt and some dark booties to round out the look.

I love using the color emerald to dress up a look and make it more formal, and this scarf does double duty because it adds a pop of color as well as a touch of texture to any outfit.

Also I love this skirt so much because it has side-seam pockets. I was looking at it on the rack (and didn’t realize it had pockets) and my hand slipped into the pocket when I was hunting for my size and I decided right there that I had to own it.
