How To Wear Green in 2013
For 2013, make Emerald your number one (Pantone #17-5641, to be exact). The newly-minted Pantone Colour Of The Year is a deep, lush green, cousin to the renowned Kelly Green but with just a touch more blue, and described by the colour authority as "a colour of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance, and harmony." Already spotted on the spring 2013 runways of Burberry Prorsum, Gucci, Michael Kors, and Oscar de la Renta, this luscious gem tone also stole the beauty limelight byway of green-rimmed eyes at Stella McCartney, Christian Dior, and Kenzo.
Need more convincing? Emerald green is one of those delectable shades that is universally flattering on all skin tones and complexions, as demonstrated by the likes of First Lady Michelle Obama, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, Angelina Jolie, Mila Kunis, Emma Stone, Freida Pinto, and Zoe Saldana, just to name a few.
