Tired of the cold and dreary days of winter? We sure are, which is making us look forward to the fresh beginnings and cheery fashions of spring even more! While last spring brought brights and neons, this year, be on the lookout for elegant shades of emerald. We’ve highlighted the most amazing emerald-colored collections below, straight from the runway! Plus, we’ve picked a few fave items that’ll make you green with envy (without spending too much green of your own). 🙂
Deep Emerald Shades
Anyone else thinking about the green spring grass right about now? From vintage, drop-waist dresses and skirts, to shorts and trousers, expect to see a wide selection of pieces in this gorgeous, rich color. Colorblocking is a cinch, with deep emerald as the perfect match for neutrals, metallics, or even other jewel tones such as deep purple or blue. Flattering with all skin tones and hair colors, virtually anyone can look good in this shade!
Light Emerald Hues
Don’t think you can pull off such a bold color? The emerald trend encompasses all shades, including lighter, softer greens and mints. Above we see gorgeous dresses, blouses, and jackets, and even some emerald-inspired eye makeup! It is also no surprise to see the mixing and matching of prints and patterns. From florals to gingham, spring offers exciting opportunities to have fun with your personal style and step outside of your fashion comfort zone!

Keep in mind that this fresh new color isn’t just a trend for clothing — emerald is also perfect for accessories! From handbags to sunglasses, accessories allow you to incorporate a splash of emerald in a safe, more-reserved way. These oversized sunnies are ideal for the high-fashion lady in a deep shade of emerald, and are a perfect fit for your professional attire. These rainbow aviators are perfect for a casual weekend, while some punchy pastel hues are a must for the more adventurous gal willing to take a walk on the wild side.
