So according to Pantone, emerald is the colour of 2013 – which is why we have dedicated this week’s moodboard to the rich and luscious shade.

What do you think of when you hear the word “emerald”? We tend to think of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz and his glorious Emerald City, and therefore think of splendour, grandeur and generally all things rich and luxurious. It’s also a classic Christmas shade, so you can totally get away with rocking any of the pieces we have selected over the holiday season: you will be both festive and on-trend – and who doesn’t want that?!

Here are a few of our favourite emerald pieces:
