Emerald Green Queen Essentials

Shop the post:

Vegan Leather Jacket (removable faux fur collar -- 30% off!): Blank NYC | Tie-Neck Top: similar here | Over-the-knee boots: Sam Edelman | Handbag: Louis Vuitton (similar here) | Lip Color: Bite Beauty Multistick (also wearing this as my eyeshadow!)

Trend alert! JEWEL TONES. I mean, seriously...nothing says Christmas like emerald green, right?! As you can tell from my Instagram feed, ruby red is one of my favorites lately too!

When it comes to leather-like jackets, I tend to stick close to genuine leather pieces...they’re tried and true investments! I have 2 in my closet (my favorite is similar to this one – vegan version here). Faux leather can just easily look cheap, but I’ve been impressed with Blank NYC’s selection this season (not to mention their genuine leather pieces included below).

The jacket I’m wearing (in a size small) is currently 30% off (under $100)! Unique finds like this faux fur collar detail send a simple jacket over-the-top in my book. I love how it adds a feminine flair to the rocker vibe. The collar is detachable, so it’s basically two jackets for the price of one. And this one happens to be on sale. I’m either the best or the worst friend to shop with…I can totally justify any purchase! 😁

I rarely wear these over-the-knee open-toe studded suede boots because they’re less than subtle and it takes just the right outfit for them to be the perfect fit. But I feel as though they were a match made in heaven for this vegan leather look. This pair is the most similar option I could find…sans the studs, which makes them far easier to style! If you’re feeling edgy, go for it! You got this, girl.

I should also note the lipstick...it's Bite Beauty's new "multistick," which acts as an eyeshadow too! How cool. You'll either really like it or really dislike it...I happen to be a fan of Bite in general, so it's no surprise their multistick (wearing color "gelato") does the trick for me!

I couldn’t possibly share this look without including some other emerald/forest green family favorites!
