This Just In!! Pantone Color of the Year is….Emerald Green!

Pantone announces every year a color that will rule the fashion and design world for the upcoming year.  For 2013, that color is Emerald Green.

I’m not sure about you, but I am thrilled!  Emerald Green is a rich luxurious color far different from the 2012 color of the year, Tangerine Tango.  Tangerine Tango was a red/orange that, in my opinion, was more difficult for all skin types to wear.  Plus it was more difficult to find colors that paired well with Tangerine Tango.  Pantone has chosen a deeper yet softer color palette for Spring 2013.  In my opinion, there are not many skin types that emerald green does not look good on.  Bridesmaids will look elegant in emerald next year.

Another reason I love emerald green is that it looks great paired with so many different colors.  If you are considering using Emerald Green, try pairing it with pink, purple, navy, black or gold.  Any of these colors go perfectly with the new color of the year.

You will start to see Emerald Green in lots of places for 2013, including accessories.  Of course emerald green reminds me of jewelry which will definitely be a a great accessory for a wedding gown or bridesmaids.

Also, makeup and other accessories like shoes and handbags will be great ways to wear a little emerald green on your wedding day.
