“Lively. Radiant. Lushâ€¦ A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony,” is the first quote you'll read off Pantone's homepage regarding the 2013 color of the year: Emerald.
â€œGreen is the most abundant hue in nature â€“ the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum. As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in todayâ€™s complex world. This powerful and universally appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors,â€ said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
Sure, the color green has always been around in the world of fashion but recently it has been making a steady rise in the past several seasons. Emerald has a classic elegance, which makes it appropriate for multiple occasions from formal-wear to casual wear and accessories. Not only will you see Emerald making an impact in the women's world but on the men's scene in the form of ties, sportswear and knitwear.
Emerald also will make an impact in the world of beauty. This color has a magical way of making every eye color more dramatic bringing out natural hues and undertones. Emerald is an ideal complement to peaches, reds, roses, etc. so you will have a wide variety of shades to choose from regarding your lipstick and blush.
