Since it's Pantone's color of the yearand the fact that St. Patrick's Day is coming up, we figured that this month was the perfect time to feature the über-trendy emerald green in one of our Color Combo posts. Many people are wary about wearing green with blue, but we love the idea of pairing emerald with a cool cobalt blue for a bold and fashion-forward look.

Need some outfit ideas before you rock this color combo? Simply scroll on down to check out four stylish outfits featuring cobalt and emerald:

Outfit #1: Modern Classic

Look cute on campus with this classic, yet modern, cobalt and emerald outfit. Start by pairing a cobalt striped top with a green A-line skirt. Woven flats and a scalloped handbag give this look a polished vibe, while these jeweled earrings incorporate both blue and green tones.
