How to Wear Pantone’s Color of the Year: Emerald Green

2013 is all about Emerald Green. Every year, Pantone LLC names a color of the year based on current trends and predicted sustainability. The color is everywhere and it’s fabulous. It’s a balanced shade of green, representing love, calmness, serenity, rejuvenation and eternity. In Hindu culture, Emerald Green is the color used to align the heart chakra.

What I love about Emerald Green is that it represents a gorgeous sentiment and also looks fabulous! When combined with gold, you have a luscious, rich look.

How to Wear It

In jewelry…

Emeralds are perhaps the most complex of all gemstones. Because of the gem’s complexity, it is often a unique and lovely alternative to the classic diamond engagement ring. This gorgeous gold pendant with diamond and emerald inlays is a great piece for any special occasion in the coming year.

For a classic look, Emerald Green is best worn with black. To dress it up, black velvet is a gorgeous pairing. It can be elegant and sumptuous. If you’re looking for something a little more discreet, the same look can be achieved with a fabric as simple as cotton.

(2) Try some Emerald Green pumps to add a serious splash to your outfit. When pairing, think deep jewel tones. A deep burgundy or wine red will offset the green without smothering it. Midnight blue will accent the blue tones in your accessories and create a harmonious color palate. (3) The fabulous Balenciaga bag below is a great addition to any collection.
