Sign me up!

Last week Pantone announced that emerald green is the color of 2013. Funny, green (emerald, bottle, olive, and army) has been firmly on my radar for well over a year. I still love and carry my bottle green Givenchy tote and recently, I cannot seem to get enough of the shades favored by the military. The pieces that I bought for fall, that really worked and are in heavy rotation in my wardrobe, are army green.

Oddly, I don’t want a jacket in this hue, it feels too literal and a tad unsurprising. But my Current/Elliott cargo-ish pants (bought 2 pairs on sale) and Givenchy wrap cuff are my new run-around staples. Army green, so neutral, goes with everything.

  • You’ve opened my eyes!! Are the skinny jeans shown Givenchy as well? I have used grays in the past as my neutral, but like the strength in olive! Hugs

  • The jeans are Current/Elliott, my favorite brand.

  • I love the entire look but I can’t find that pant and it’s not on your site. Let us know.
    Thanks for sharing…..

  • These are pieces that I bought earlier this fall. The pants were from Barneys, but are still in the shop from MyTheresa (but I would wait until they go on sale). The cuff too was from Barneys, not sure they still have it. Although, the NY store has one in black…

  • I thought those green pants looked good…..and then I realised her thighs were almost as slim as her calves. No wonder!
