Every year, Pantone asks a plethora of designers and brands about the colors they’re featuring in their newest lines. The results they gather aid Pantone in their decision for what hue will be the most abundant as well as influential in the upcoming year. Just this month Pantone announced the 2013 color of the year: emerald green!
I think emerald green is a fabulous choice for color of the year. It looks fantastic on literally every skin tone and it's such a rich deep color. It's very versatile and looks gorgeous paired with navy, mustard, burgundy, plum, and so many others.
As soon as I heard the news I was thrilled, and I knew I had to pull out an oldy but a goody - my BCBG emerald green dress! I put a jacket over it in this post but I'll feature the whole dress sooner or later - it's beautiful!
We'll all be seeing tons of emerald green in 2013 - embrace it and happy shopping!
