Trend Watch | Emerald

When Pantone announced that emerald was the color of the year I thought “OK, cool.  Nice color.  Too bad I don’t own anything emerald.”  I planned to pick up something in emerald this spring.   But while digging around in my closet last week, I found this great top that I bought last year in the perfect shade of emerald.

  • This is such a gorgeous color on you! Your scarf and cognac boots are perfectly paired with the pretty green.

  • You look great in Emerald and with brunette hair I think it is a bit softer rather than with blonde or very dark hair.

  • I love that emerald and mint are on trend this season. They’re great colors that look good on anyone. Navy too.. Oh I ♥ navy.

  • I love all shades of green… I’ve been a fan of emerald for quite some time and I was so pleased to see it the “color of the year” because quite frankly I’ve been lonely! 🙂 My sis-in-law got me an emerald scarf for Christmas that has served to make me look totally current when wearing the most basic outfit. Yea for scarves, right??? Wish I could reach into my closet and magically pull out such a cute shirt! You look fab!!! jules

  • You put together the most beautiful outfits, with simple pieces! You’re one of the few fashion bloggers that I can definitely relate to stylewise, but you do it all with such a beautiful twist!

  • You look beautiful in emerald Alison! I love emerald ANYTHING. I have for a long while now. Last summer I bought a pretty floral dress at Forever 21 in emerald & I feel so fresh & lovely every time I put it on. 🙂

  • Hello cutie-pie!
    You look gorgeous in green! I don’t have anything in emerald green……except for my emerald ring, but I’d love to get a pretty dress or a silk blouse for spring.

  • Emerald is your color lady- and love the scarf. I bought 2 more scarves today at Target. I need my head examined. They were only $4.xx each and I had wanted one for several months. I love your boots. I have the Target knock-off version! haha

  • I adore blue and green together. So classy and chic. Loving the top with the polka dots. I may need to add that to my summer wardrobe. I totally see it paired with a pair of white shorts. Loving your scarf. It really sets off the entire outfit. So classy and chic.

    I don’t have much green in my closet, either. It’s just not a favorite color of mine. But I really like the color and style of your emerald top and the scarf is so cute!
