Emerald, the Color of the Year: Three Ways to Wear It

According to Pantone, the all-powerful authority on color trends, the color of 2013 will be Emerald.  This stunning green jewel tone is a fantastic choice, and we’re glad that this color will be all over the place this year!  Here are three ways to incorporate emerald into your wardrobe in 2012:

1. As the “main course” of your outfit

Make emerald the focus on your outfit by pairing a bold emerald garment, such as a dress, romper. or maxi skirt, with neutral accessories (this works especially well for cool-toned people, since emerald is a flattering color for you). You can go either dressy or casual with this look.

2. As a key piece within your outfit
