It's Easy Being Green

Spring is here, and with it comes one of our favorite holidays here at For Elyse: St. Patrick's Day. It's especially fitting this year, because Emerald is the official color of the year, according to Pantone, and we couldn't be happier. Not sure how to wear green? Don't despair, just read on and let For Elyse save the day. Gwen Stefani is a master of pairing clothes and accessories together that reflect the hard/soft aesthetic. I love the way her camo pants lend a tough edge to this otherwise soft look of a sweater with her mint handbag. To try this look, I suggest the Star Stud-ed Clutch from our site. Easy to dress up or down, the hardware on this forest green clutch will give any outfit a pop of color. Another master of accessories is actress Ali Larter (Heroes) who paired a black leather motorcycle jacket with a soft forest green scarf. The scarf softens her overall look, lending a more approachable feeling to this otherwise tough style. To copy her look, try the Summer Scarf in Apple Green. You'll love the lightweight material, and an added bonus is that this beauty is long enough to wrap as an infinity scarf! Beyonce was a complete showstopper at the inauguration of Barack Obama, and with her black lace dress and gargantuan, eye-catching emerald earrings, it's no surprise. Her earrings might be a little much for every day use, but for a look that's both understated and elegant, try our Crystal Waters Gold and Aqua earrings. Olivia Wilde (Tron, Cowboys and Aliens) is a definite style icon who is a master of looking chic, even in her every day life. I love this outfit of green skinny jeans paired with the striped sailor top, gray jacket and black booties. These skinny jeans are effortlessly versatile, and bring some life into an otherwise fairly colorless outfit. To try this style, try our Flying Monkey Skinny Jeans. Katy Perry turned a lot of heads at this year's Grammy Awards for her over-the-top dress choice. For a toned-down version of her dress, try our Sis Sis Sparkling Diamond Top.
