Admittedly, I do this post every year simply because How. Stunning. Is. Emerald Green?
This is, of course, the perfect time of year to indulge in this rich shade…you could even get away with wearing it head to toe. For example…those pajamas? Stahp.
Emerald Green Gifts: A Guide To The Most-Coveted Color Of The Season
There are so many lovely items in my favorite seasonal shade right now; it was actually tough to narrow it down. I’m craving this simple holiday look for casual gatherings: A cozy ivory sweater (perhaps this), my favorite jeans and these velvet loafers. Yep. Done.
Let’s deep dive into all things emerald, shall we?
P.S. Have you checked out Holiday Central yet? Go now…holiday sales, gift ideas and outfit inspo all in one spot. It’s a happy place.
1. Anthropologie Leather Tote
This tote is so soft…and what a lovely color. This style of bag is the kind I always tend to go back to for every day and for travel.
2. Loeffler Randall Heels
Shana has these Loeffler Randall heels (perfect for a holiday party), and Linzi loves them too. I get jealous every time I see these on either one of them. SO gorgeous. Perfect for a holiday party, or any season for a bright beautiful pop of color and fun.
3. J.Crew Velvet Loafers
Just ordered the J.Crew loafers. Btw, if you haven’t owned a pair of J.Crew shoes before, they are some of the most well-made shoes. I’ve had some boots and a pair of their pumps for years. I tend to cycle through shoes, but both pairs have remained closet staples for me.
4. AllSaints Necklace
So gorgeous. I’m such an AllSaints fan, and this necklace is no exception.
5. Kate Spade Heart Of Gold Bracelet
This bracelet makes a heartfelt gift; it’s so lovely. Easy to stack with other bracelets. Engraved with ‘heart of gold’ on the inside, and pairs so well with emerald green.
6. Minionette Butterfly Earrings
Butterflies are having a moment, my teen assistant Nova tells me. These earrings are so so lovely. They’re the perfect size and perfect for anyone born in May, too. A gorgeous stocking stuffer.
7. Anthropologie Pearl Ring
What goes beautifully with emerald green? Pearls. Love this trio ring. So stunning.
8. Ever After Bracelet
Another heartfelt beautiful memento to gift. If your loved one doesn’t do bangles, this is perfection.
9. Summersalt x Rifle Paper Co. Silky PJs
These were a last-minute add to this little collection but oh. my…Rifle Paper Co does it again. Sucking me in with their gorgeous prints. Need! SO pretty. Sizes XS – 2X. Also comes in a bunch of other great prints, including the cute striped set from the gals of The Home Edit.
10. Anthropologie Fir Firewood Candle
I just don’t think you can beat Anthro for your candle sourcing. Their candles are so gorgeous every year AND smell amazing. My mom and I just tested them all out when we were in the store a couple of weeks ago. This was one of my fav scents…not too heavy, perfect for guys, too.
11. Portofino Candle
Cut glass candles are just so pretty for the holidays. I’m a sucker for anything woodsy, too, and the birch and sage scent here is right up my alley. Nordstrom Rack has so many lovely candles to gift, including the Homesick Candle line.
12. Free People Sweater
Free People slouchy sweaters are team favorites around here. This reminds me of a much pricier AllSaints sweater I’ve tried on. This color. SO lovely, especially for those of us who are green-eyed ladies.
13. Faux Leather Joggers
These faux leather joggers are so pretty! I love the styling above with the black and white scarf. Dress them up with a camel sweater and coat OR all black everything else.
14. Banana Republic Velvet Puffer
This is just stunning and would also be so cozy. I have a nylon emerald green puffer but gosh…added to my own wishlist.
15. Reformation Julius Silk Dress**
Leave it to Reformation when you want a killer dress in fabulous green. Shana has worn a different green dress of theirs for a few years now and gah, this silk option with the tie waist, high slit and mock neck is just perfection. Size up in my experience with Reformation. **Indicates meets our requirements for sustainability.
16. Anthropologie Tufted Maribelle Rug
Beautiful. I love a tufted rug like this for serious comfiness underfoot and good wear. This design is beautiful and comes in a few sizes, including a runner and a 2×3 accent.
And there we have it with the emerald eye candy for this year. It kinda makes me want to redo an entire room around a green velvet couch so I can indulge all throughout the year. I don’t know if another color will ever top it for me!
Would love to have you follow me over on Instagram @laurajansenstyle for more rad fashion picks, kitchen dance parties, donut reviews and a side of taking things not too seriously, all from Portland, OR.
And this one’s for the Pinners…
Gah! I want it all! Emerald green is one of my most favorite colors. This is all so good! That rug is so so gorgeous!
It’s just such a beautiful shade! I know, I’m trying to figure out where I can fit that rug into my house that already has too many rugs haha.
