Here are five ways to wear this stunning colour:

2. A green midi dress is the perfect trans-seasonal outfit for a fancy lunch or event.

3. Matching is back! Update a casual daytime look with a green bag and green heels. If you want to tone it down a little, simply opt for one or the other.

4. If you aren’t afraid of colour (and you shouldn’t be!) have fun in head-to-toe emerald. Wearing the same colour head-to-toe is a flattering look, as it will elongate your body.

5. Finish off a look with emerald-tinted accessories such as jewel-encrusted earrings, a necklace or a belt. Tip: If you have green eyes, these items will enhance them!
