As you try to keep on track with your new year’s resolutions to hit up the gym more often or get more sleep, why not try adding another resolution to the list? Add more color to your wardrobe. Pantone has announced the 2013 color of the year: emerald green.
According to Pantone’s press release, emerald green is “Lively. Radiant. Lush. A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.” The dynamic color has already been making waves in the fashion industry with celebrities such as Beyonce, Angelina Jolie and Mila Kunis rocking the color on the red carpet. Now that it’s the new official color green should be popping up even more.
Last year’s color, tangerine, and 2011’s color, honeysuckle, made large impacts on the color choice in wardrobe, make up, and even home décor. Keeping up with this trend Pantone will be collaborating with Sephora for a make up line incorporating the emerald to be released in March.
The hue is the perfect mix of earthy and sophistication. It’s a perfect shade for a dress to hit the dance floor in or for a blazer for the workplace. It’s also perfect for a simple accessory like a bag or earrings to spice up a casual outfit for lunch with friends. No matter how you add emerald to your wardrobe it’s sure to draw attention!
