Emerald Street Style


In years past, Fashion Week was solely intended to showcase a designer’s collection. Now it has become a who’s who, and who’s wearing what in the fashion world. With the rise of social media outlets fashion week revolves around much more than the designers. Those attending shows now dress to impress ( fashion photographers that is) We at M&J can not handle how great some of the fashion selections have been. The D.I.Y options are endless; we’re already stocking up on fur, feathers, rhinestones and studs. Here is a recap of our favorite emerald green street style recaps from New York, Paris, and Milan Fashion Week.

Emerald Editorial Inspiration


Green is the new black.
Emerald has been the focus of many editorial spreads. The color has been used in a vibrant way portraying varied emotions. Avant Garde photographer Miles Aldridge uses the color in an outlandish way while J.Crew embraces the warmth the color brings.



Each of these photos has inspired us here at M&J. Check out our emerald section online
