Oh, how we all love the colors of the leaves as they fall from the trees to cover the ground this time of year. And while fashion designers have long used the palette of autumnal colors for inspiration this time of year to produce clothes in browns, deep reds, oranges, yellows and golds, this fall there is another color that is causing a huge sensation. Emerald green is a color you may associate with spring, or even with the land of Oz, before you’d associate it with fall, and yet some of our very favorite pieces this fall are in that gorgeous jewel tone.
Designers such as Monique Lhuillier and Oscar de la Renta are seeing green this fall when it comes to some of their most show-stopping gowns, and while these legendary designers aren’t green with envy, we sure are envious of the models who got to strut their stuff in the emerald green dresses and jackets at the Gucci or Michael Kors shows for fall of this year. And the emerald green craze has extended far beyond the gowns of the runway to entrance the designers of accessories as well. Both Chanel and Bottega Veneta have created emerald green bags to DIE for this season, and of course you’ll need to pair those amazing bags with some Alexander McQueen lace-up ankle boots that are just incredible when matched with leggings and an extra-long sweater.
