There's a reason the Wizard of Oz lived in the grand Emerald City. The deep shade of green is synonymous with elegance and luxury.
After color authority Pantone named emerald the official color of 2013, the green tone began popping up on runways and in stores everywhere. We'll also be looking to spot pops of emerald jewelry on the red carpet during the Oscars.
Here are some ways you can make the color shine in your wardrobe.

For a classic, versatile blouse, try the Greylin silk button down blouse, $97 from Piperlime.com.
