Emerald green is one of the most elegant colours to wear, but it doesn’t mean you can’t add an edgy twist to make your outfit POP!
What I love most about this colour is the fact that anyone can pull it off as it suits every skin tone.
Accessorise with rose gold jewelry or be fashion forward and add colour blocking pieces or prints like snakeskin to look like the next big Instagram influencer.
If you are aiming for a more classic look, wear a crisp white collar shirt paired with emerald green high-waisted pants – a popular choice to stand out in the workplace.
Hollywood A-listers like Emma Stone, Lupita N’yonga and Blake Lively have all been spotted rocking this luxury shade on the red carpet and local retailers are introducing more emerald green garments in their window displays for winter season.
A lot of African designers also played with this rich and royal colour at the recent Cape Town Fashion Week.
