Announcing Pantone’s Color for 2013—Emerald

December 6, 2012 | By | Comments (4)

This morning, Pantone—those brilliant color gurus—announced their color of the year for 2013, and it’s emerald. According to the release, emerald is a “vivid verdant green, [that] enhances our sense of well-being further by inspiring insight as well as promoting balance and harmony.”

I love this choice for 2013. While sapphire will always be my favorite (it is my birthstone, after all), I’m a big fan of jewel tones, and I’ll be looking forward to adding some emerald to my wardrobe and apartment in the next year. Here are some pieces I have my eye on:

Pantone Color of 2013 Emerald

Nail Polish: Essie Pretty Edgy $4
Sweater: J.Crew Cashmere Tippi Sweater in Pine $168
Purse: Kate Spade Cobble Hill Little Minka, $189
Earrings: Green Onyx Gemstone Earrings from Delezhen on Etsy, $98
Jeans: Gap 1969 Legging Skimmer Jeans in Kelly Green, $70
Shoes: Plenty by Tracy Reese Abby Moccasins, $120
iPhone case: JSGD Zodiac iPhone Case in Emerald, $35
