Emerald Adds Richness To Fall Colours

Vivid and saturated, emerald green is just one of the jewel tones that has dominated this season’s colour palette – but it’s the only one to have had a mythical city named after it. On the runway, like at Diane von Furstenberg, we saw head-to-toe green, if you’re daring, a flattering way to try all over green is with separates in varying shades. Otherwise opt to ground this bright hue with black, like at Alberta Ferretti and on Whitney Port– navy and grey are also beautiful neutrals to pair with green.

Diane von Furstenberg F/W 2011 really worked the green spectrum with a combination of different shades and textures.

While Whitney Port dazzled in emerald at New York Fashion Week, we would have liked to have seen a tougher bootie for an unexpected finish to her girly dress.

Alberta Ferretti offered this gorgeous emerald coat in the F/W 2011 collection. Who cares what’s underneath?
