Emerald Green: How to Incorporate the Color of the Year Into Your Wardrobe

"Lively. Radiant. Lush ... A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony." ~ Pantone

Last month Pantone, the global authority on color, announced the Color of the Year for 2013: Emerald, a rich, jewel tone perfect for both fashion and home. If you want to incorporate it into you wardrobe, there are many ways to help you do just that. Below are some of our favorite emerald-inspired picks that are sure to help bring the 2013 Color of the Year to life! 
Precisely, in July 2012, we wrote a post about this radiant color that has emerged from a long hibernation in the fashion world.
Emerald plays well with deep purple ...  

Warm yellow and terracotta bloom against emerald too ...

Or try it with pink.

No need to go green with envy, this jewel-tone hue looks gorgeous against every skin tone.
