Go Green – As in Emerald Green

Every year Pantone – the ultimate authority on color, determines what the Color of the Year will be. While that might seem silly and insignificant to some, it actually helps designers, artists, and other style-related companies plan out future products to consumers like us. Last year Tangerine Tango took top honor, but 2013 is all about Emerald Green!

 

What a great color! Now, I may be biased because it’s technically my birthstone – but I happen to love how this jewel-tone color looks on everybody. Pantone states Emerald symbolizes “growth, renewal and prosperity”, and also promotes “balance and harmony”, but I simply love it because it’s classic and bold.

 

Yes, it’s a vivid color- but it’s also very flattering on all different types of skin tones and hair colors. Even if you’re not particularly fond of the hue there are ways to work around the color whether it’s through patterns or accessories. If you’re still on the fence about the luxurious shade – try these simple styling tips to help you on your quest to go green this year.
