Wonder how to get that stunning catwalk style? Here´s how to translate runway looks to the street.
If the Pantone color forecast indicates what colors are trending each season, then fashion designers clearly have a head of their own. The forecast says emerald green is the ultimate green color for fall/winter 2013 but up the stage, we see that green hues in deep, rich shades that embody the autumnal season are what dominate the runway.
From Michael Korr´s strong military print to Reed Krafoff´s layering of sophisticated dark greens (check out Catherine Malandino, Cedric Chalier, Chadwick Bell, Christian Wijnants versions, among others), the green movement trend has certainly made its way to the spotlight and is expected to grace the streets anytime soon, if not already.

Clean lined long coats in mystifying deep green are made to look twice mysterious by layering it over a green dress polished with tall black boots. Camouflage green is styled up with either black or white. Green separates look equally great if teamed with bright colors such as pink or purple, or if matched with another green.
YOUR STREET STYLE:
Green Dress for a touch of romance. Choose a green dress to dress the occasion, classic lace for a wedding or a green prism skater shape for parties, and add a flattering black jacket. The darker you go, the better. Complete the look with sexy black pumps or green pumps that match exactly your dress. If you opt for long green dresses, break the monochrome with light blue or yellow ankle boots.

Green coats to replenish your wardrobe. Investing in a deep-green coat is practical because they´re not only up-to-date, their shade also blends easily with other colors. If going too deep gives you that fall/winter blue, feel free to update it with bright or printed pieces such as a polka dot dress, a pink top, or a tangerine turtleneck.
