The gurus of color at Pantone announced the Color of 2013 this past week and the winner is emerald. Think: the grand make-believe city of Oz, Elizabeth Taylor’s gems, and all the shades of green in a deep forest and four leaf clovers. It’s lush, vivid, deep and said to be a balancing, harmonizing color.
The easiest way to incorporate emerald into your wardrobe is easy—with jewelry like earrings and rings. You could also try it out with the colored denim trend and get a pair of deep green jeans. Emerald is a great shade for when you need to dress up as well—silk blouses, gowns, and skirts all look luxurious in this rich hue. If you feel bold, try an emerald green eyeshadow or dyed emerald green fur. Coincidentally, its also a great shade to use to dress up for the holidays—just don’t do the whole red and green combo together. It’s a little too One-of-Santa’s-Elves.
How are you going to rock emerald in 2013?
