So this year, So Now!

You probably know that emerald green is the colour of the year, but more than that - it really is a colour for the moment.

In the last few weeks I've met jewellery expert @KellyLCasey whose favourite stone is emerald, Caro Emerald has released a new album and Bette Midler was in the Metro yesterday* talking about (amongst other things) colour and fashion, and wearing - yes, you guessed it... emerald green!

As Spring continues to elude us, emerald green is a colour deep enough to not look out of place in the 'autumnal' weather whilst at the same time nodding us towards an appreciation of the growth of flowers and plants springing up around us.

Although it is a clear step away from black, worn in the right place with the right complimentary colours - emerald can act as an alternative neutral, eg with a pale green top if you have light colouring or contrasting tangerine if you have a warm undertone. 

And if that all isn't proof enough that emerald green is THE colour of the moment, did you know the gemstone for the month of May is emerald?

If you’d like to know how to incorporate this stunning shade into your wardrobe (and yes, it can work for everyone), then email me at for your FREE guide on how to feel energised in emerald!

In spring's sweet flowery month of May
And wears an emerald all her life
Shall be a loved and happy wife"
