New year, new color. A few weeks ago, Pantone announced that emerald was the color of 2013. Elegant, luxe, and universally flattering, emerald is a hue that works well day or night, and a great alternative to wearing darker neutrals (without veering too far into “bold color” territory).
If you still have some holiday cash-money to spend and you’re looking to score a great deal on a piece with a bit of longevity, try Vanessa Bruno‘s black lace and emerald green Moustique trouser on for size. The super sophisticated pair of pants are slim-fit, straight leg, and hit right at the ankle. Shimmery emerald green fabric overlayed with black lace give the front major “wow” factor, while slightly stretchy black fabric in the back means you won’t have to worry about ruining the trousers every time you sit down.
For work, pair the trousers with a crisp button-down shirt and sensible bootie-heels or brogues for a borrowed-from-the-boys look. At night, swap the boots for a pair of eye-catching platforms, and switch out the shirt for a pretty silk top.
The Vanessa Bruno Moustique trousers are $360 (50% off) at SSENSE.
