Seeing Green: Pantone Names Emerald Color of the Year

7 December 2012

December 6th was a big day in the fashion world. Why? Because Pantone finally made an announcement regarding 2013’s color of the year. The big winner was…drumroll… emerald! (Sidebar: As a fashion writer, I cannot express to you how delighted I am to hear the announcement. I’ve had about enough of this tangerine tango business and am excited about an easier-to-style — and often more flattering — color.)

The jewel tone, inspired by the Earth’s own precious gemstone, has already finagled its way onto Spring 2013 runways via apparel, accessories, shoes and even makeup. Emerald is sure to transcend beyond the fashion world, as well, into underwood interior decor, electronics and electronic accessories, etc.

Says the Pantone website on emerald: “Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.” Wall Street Journal writes, “Diamonds may be forever, but emeralds are for 2013.”

Below we’ve highlighted some fashion examples that feature emerald as their leading lady.
