Each year Pantone, the color guru’s of America for the past 50 years, alongside style experts and fashion influencers decide what color should be trending across the globe. This collection of psycho-sociological color musings from the experts will literally determine what color Tom Ford gown Beyonce wears to the Oscars. Last year it was Tangerine Tango, the year before that… Honeysuckle, and before that is was Turquoise. This year, Pantone’s color of the year for 2013 is Emerald.
A color that Pantone describes as brilliant and luxurious, Emerald green represents balance and harmony. I say it’s a color that gives life and joy to any women’s complexion and a great addition to your style choices. Whether it’s a breezy emerald green maxi skirt, or a sharp perfectly pleated pair of emerald slacks–this Spring looks to bring more than a handful of exciting style options for every fashionista. Let’s take a look at the many ways the color can be worn.
1. Yes your primary color is green, but who says you can’t add more. This spring use other bright colors to compliment the color of the year. Remember to add a bit of gold for elegance and star power.
2. Evenings should always be amazing. Imagine the stares that will be awarded to you walking into the party with a dazzling emerald green wrap dress, adorned with shiny accessories and a pair of simply marvelous pumps!
3. Weekends are meant for style. It’s a chance to show the world your style when you’re not confined to your daily 9 to 5 rules of fashion. Sweatshirts and sneaker wedges are my go-to look for brunch with my homies.
Hopefully, these have you excited for your spring wardrobe! If not there’s more.
