5 Ways To Wear Pantone Color Of The Year: Emerald Green

Whenever I think of emerald green, the image of Keira Knightly in Atonement comes to mind. Despite not having her lankiness, I desperately want that dress! Six years later, emerald green is now pantone color of the year.

With red hair, I wouldn’t be going too far if I said I looked quite lovely in green. Don’t have red hair? That’s okay, emerald green looks good on just about everyone. Here’s five inexpensive ways to add emerald green to your wardrobe:

 

 

 

Belt it: A thin emerald green belt adds a wonderful pop to any black or navy A-line, maxi, or skater dress.

Flats: Emerald green is sexy and super classy. So just as you might adorn your tootsies with the standard black patent leather or nude flats, try emerald on for size.
