Emerald: Pantone's Color of 2013

Wednesday, January 2, 2013
The color experts at Pantone have deemed emerald to be the color of 2013. With visions of "The Wizard of Oz" in my head, I quickly thought about all the lovely things I could wear in this vibrant color.

As a green-eyed blonde, I am particularly fond of emerald as it goes great with my hair, skin tone, and eyes. I went to work and put together a Polyvore board with some of my favorite emerald items for winter. I wouldn't recommend wearing all of these items together. You want to have a subtle splash of color, not a huge overdose.

I do love the jeans and the bag together though. If emerald is too bold for you, try wearing a small element of emerald such as a scarf, a belt, or a piece of jewelry and play the other items in your outfit off of the one emerald piece.

Is emerald a color that you'll embrace in 2013? How will you wear it?
