Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.
Earlier this year Pantone unveiled their official Color of the Year for 2013—Emerald 17-5641. As always their style forecast is superbly on point, with Emerald making a big splash on spring runways and, according to the PANTONE Fall Fashion Color Report, this opulent jewel tone will be going strong through the coming winter. Not only is a deep, lush green universally flattering and seasonally appropriate year-round, with St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, you’ve got the perfect excuse to indulge in a few fabulously verdant spring accessories. It’s a win-win—you’ll be exquisitely on-trend and you won’t get pinched on March 17!
