The Color of 2013: EMERALD!

Colors and shades are hot this spring, summer and fall. If you want to know what colors to choose for which outfit, look to Pantone, which is the official ‘go to’ experts in colors. Emerald is hot! Yes, this somewhat green color is being endorsed by Pantone and it is ‘right on time’ for the upcoming seasons; reminding you of grassy lush meadows and warm afternoons.

Most designers get their inspiration on colors from a variety of different places such as green landscapes, forests, paintings, pistachio and the spring freshness outdoors.

Emerald is a prominent color that cannot be missed this spring. Green, on a whole, has a wide range of shades such as sour green, blue-green, dark green, light green, emerald and bright green.

Emerald is also a signature color. When it is combined with a great top or bottom, it can make you pop, look extraordinary and be the life of the party. An emerald top with distinct features can pull off a basic straight skirt, jeans, white shorts and a pair of black pants.

You must add emerald to your wardrobe this season. It is easy to match with a solid color or even a brighter color if you want to be bold. However, emerald does go well with white and black.

The color, emerald, can set the mood of how your day will go. It sets the tempo for the spring feeling. Go for simple pieces of apparel, though, that fall way from your body to give you that relaxed feeling that spring and summer embodies.

Emerald and your skin tone

You must be thinking, well, will it complement my skin tone? Yes, it will; no matter what your skin tone is. It is easy to wear, very flattering, in fact and adds a fashion statement to your wardrobe. I am such a big fan of seeing color on the runway and especially when it is added to different fashion collection for each season. Color can change your entire mood. It makes you feel good; look bright and can add a spark of happiness and confidence.

Like the women’s color palette, men are wearing color this spring to balance their own wardrobe and to complement their skin tones as well. Most are sticking to soothing colors like emerald and other neutral colors.

Summer and Emerald

Emerald symbolizes the introduction of green. It is the solution to putting together an outfit with khaki and white shorts in the spring and also in the summer time. It continues to be a powerful force in rings, bracelet and earrings as well as other accessories for the summer and spring. It is ideal for sportswear ensemble.

For the spring and summer, designers are addressing the self-expressive desire of their prospective consumers by inducting green into the fashion queue. Women are looking for ways to balance their wardrobe and re-energize their self-esteem. What better way to do it than to include emerald in the color palette?

It is undeniable that emerald will be here to stay for this season and for seasons to come. It will continue to be the unspoiled foreground and backdrop to so many pieces. It adds sophistication and intrigue with its hushed undertone, lively inspiration and radiant intent. Don’t be left out!
