The Lust List: Eyeing Emerald

Ladies, we all know jewel tones were popular for fall. And what, pray tell, is a better jewel than an emerald?

Honestly, I’ve never been much for green. But, the rich dark-green hue pairs well with my two favorite colors—fuchsia and navy—so it was only a matter of time before I came around.

Back in December, I lauded emerald cocktail dresses as an alternative to red for holiday parties. Well, it’s February, and I’m still loving all things emerald.

Emerald baubles with a little black dress for a night out on the town? But, of course.

Emerald earrings mixed in with gold accessories for day-to-day? A great change of pace.

Emerald-hued clothes and accessories worked into your wardrobe—why not?

I wear a lot of navy-and-white striped tops and dresses (I was meant to be French). In order to mix in a third color—emerald green pairs well (as do orange and pink).

I highly recommend adding a emerald green silk blouse to your clothing repertoire.

Fuchsia pants and pencil skirts would look stunning with a silk emerald top for a day-to-night look. If your office is more formal, wear an emerald silk blouse under your black or navy two-piece suit. Or, if you’re feeling uninspired, throw it on with black skinny pants. On the weekends, toss on your emerald silk blouse with jeans and those snakeskin pumps you just purchased for a to-the-moment look.
