Energizing, lush, and sophisticated. Pantone named Emerald 17-5641 as the color of the year for 2013, and after just one glimpse of the hue it isn’t hard to tell why. Fashion designer Tracy Reese identifies the season’s prominent shades as ranging from the sour greens of pistachio and midori to the cool blue-greens of cool mint and beachglass. Emerald’s versatility and liveliness makes this jewel-tone the summer’s wardrobe must-have.
Because green is such a natural, balanced color it looks great with any hair, eye, or skin color. Emerald is also great because there are so many ways to incorporate it into your own personal style. You can easily make Emerald the statement color of your look, or use it to add some flair to a more neutral toned ensemble.
For example, an Emerald green dress or pants make much more of a declaration than a few smaller emerald accessories. However, the right Emerald jewelry can add just as much pop to a more quietly toned outfit. The more you play with various green pieces, the more you will learn which combination of colors works best for you, and which one will look the most effortless.
Already have that perfect Emerald clutch? You’re in luck! This year’s go to color can be paired with either gold or silver, as well as a whole range of different hues from the entire color spectrum. Try pairing a set of Victoria Tane’s Forester Earrings with an LBD and green shoes, or the Emerald Necklace with a yellow top for a bolder look.
