Lush, verdant, grassy green: this color is key for the upcoming season, and not just because St. Patrick’s Day is on March 17th…although, how perfect would this be to take out that night?
Green that looks this freshly cut and full of life also happens to be the perfect shade of emerald. While it’s as bright as it is luscious, don’t fear this statement color. It actually works its way into your wardrobe like you’d never imagine. It’s far more neutral than you’d expect (If you’re wearing a print, just go for it! But it’s also amazingly chic when you do monochrome black, especially for maximum impact).
As for the features, I love the giant flap that strategically tucks into the bag. It creates a graphic, layered, multi-dimensional look. Packed with function, like divided compartments and an adjustable strap – so you can hang it at your side or go crossbody – that comes off, this green dream makes for an ideal day-to-evening clutch. Pierre Hardy leather crossbody bag at MATCHESFASHION.COM for $1,813.
Pair with: A balmy spring day allows for leather shorts, sans tights. Jonathan Simkhai’s sleek, wrap-style take on the black skort is as versatile as it is butter-soft. On NET-A-PORTER for $695.
