Yearly Pantone chooses it’s “Color of the Year ” to represent the trendiest color for the coming year and in 2013 green has no reason to be envious as it’s getting all the spotlight!
Emerald City isn’t just a place in the story of the Wizard of Oz anymore! Emerald, Pantone # 17-5641 to be exact, now holds a place in history as 2013’s Color of the Year! “Lively, Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony” is how Pantone describes their newest color of the year.
For those of you who may not know who Pantone is, it’s a company that creates and names colors that are used as a standard in the manufacture of paint, fabrics and plastics. If you work in the apparel industry or interior design industry you’re probably very familiar with Pantone Color Guides as this is what you would use to decide on a color story for your project. Because Emerald was named the 2013 Color of the Year you will see more and more of it in the stores, on the runways and in all kinds of different products this year. Personally I am beyond excited to add this energizing and elegant color trend to my wardrobe for this year!
Let’s take a look at a few of the ways you can wear this amazingly rich color. Remember you don’t have to walk out of the house looking like a leprechaun, just a little hint of the color here and there will help you stay right on trend!
