Emerald green has been a reoccurring hue on the red carpet lately, from Mila Kunis to Catherine Zeta-Jones to Angelina Jolie. Unlike more finicky shades — peachy nudes, neon pink — the color flatters a range of skin tones. Though we won’t be needing a ball gown anytime soon, this silky green wrap dress is a piece you can wear to work or a date. The wrap-around sash creates a flattering silhouette, while the slip dress beneath prevents gaping (so you won’t accidentally flash too much leg). And though Anthropologie’s frocks tend to be on the spendy side, for under $100, this doesn’t feel like a splurge.
Spring-Ready Dress, $98 at Anthropologie or online.
