The Pantone Institute recently announced the color for 2013 - EMERALD GREEN. As for the color of the 2012 - Tangerine Tango, in the words of Heidi Klum, "YOU'RE OUT!"
Happily this color evokes the feeling of renewal, vibrancy and richness, at least for me. "A sophisticated and lively green, Emerald inspires insight and clarity while enhancing a sense of well-being," according to the Pantone Institute's website. And its a great choice since its opposite the color wheel from Tangerine Tango.
As for fashion, Pantone has selected a whole range of colors including Emerald's cousins Grayed Jade and Tender Shoots to incorporate into your must-have spring & summer wardrobe for 2013. These hues were selected by several top designers including Tracy Reese, Peter Som, Nanette Lepore and two of my favorites, Tadashi Shoji and Carmen Marc Valvo.
Apparently some of our favorite celebrity fashionistas have already jumped on the Emerald bandwagon...
Our girl Beyonce sported the trend with the real thing at this year's Inauguration - an emerald ring and earrings totaling 130 carats by Lorraine Schwartz.
