The solid color is a nice departure from all the crazy patterned leggings that were trending in the fall. Choosing a tailored pant is a great alternative to skinny jeans because they serve as a double-duty fashion piece. You can where them during the day with casual flats and a quick shoe change into some heels for a night out on the town. You can compliment this regal color by pairing it with a white collared shirt and soft pink structured blazer. If you can’t find the right green apparel, go with green accessories. Necklaces or earrings with hints of green can help style up your look and make that emerald really pop.

Any dark shade of Emerald is a great to kick up your wardrobe’s look. Guys tend to play it safe and stick with blue and black . Although always a sleek look, those colors get boring after awhile. Hunter green fitted jeans, a graphic tee and a beanie is an easy way to stay swagged out in your school wear. You can style up a green sweater by pairing it with light grey jeans and a black leather jacket to add some edge.Jackets and sweaters are perfect for layering up during the cold but still keep that green color scheme in play.
