Grab Ahold Of The Pantone Color Of The Year ~ Emerald

If you are looking for some color inspiration in your STYLE – look know further. The color to grab hold of this year is the color of year for 2013 is Pantone 17-5641 TCX , aka – Emerald.  Emerald is a great color.  It’s bold.  It’s sophisticated.  It’s happy.  You can do this color.  Here’s some inspiration below on how to add Emerald to your style.



Emerald is not going to be hard to add to your style story. You can add it in with a couple of signature pops and everyone will think you are in the moment. My suggestion is start with a thing or two.  Enough to have some fun with the color of the year without replacing anything major. A touch here, and accessory there.  Think of it as something to embrace, just now, for the year.  Unless of course your are really going to make the investment – in the real thing. In that case, go for it.  Emeralds are always, classic.

  Embrace the color Emerald to be on trend and in the know.  Emerald is sophisticated, happy and classic.

I’ve been loving Emerald on my nails since last year.  I felt like it was a festive happy color without making me look like I trying to be too young.  Jealous of your teenager daughters fun neon blue nails?  Embrace Emerald as your go-to fun nail color.

I started out the new year with a Clarisonic Cleanser.  I’ve only had it for a couple of weeks.  Of any one thing I a have ever gotten for my skin, this is the thing.  Change your skin, change your year.  You will never be sorry you invested in you and got this.  I highly, highly recommend this.  And, now, you can get it in the signature color of the year.  Say, yes.

I got the new iphone 5 for Christmas.  It is changing my world.  I can Facebook with you now.  And, tweet.  And, Instagram.  And look on Pinterest.  These of course are the tools of my trade.  And, look at this case.  How hip.

I love a simple dress to throw on for any occasion where you have to look a little more pulled together, but don’t really have time to pull it together.  And, because it is a shift dress it still has a bit of comfort and an air of not trying to hard.  In the color of the year, a dress like this is perfect.

I’ve always shopped at Madewell when I’m in New York City.  I think we may have just gotten on here in Minneapolis.  But, I haven’t yet gone out to explore for it.  I do know that the quality and the price and the design of Madewell pieces are always reasonable and on trend.

I admit to already telling my sweet heart that one of these days I would like something kinda like this.  Valentines Day is coming up.  They will not only be ultra on color target for this year.  They will be perfect for every year after that.  Because they’re real.  And real is good, especially when it comes to Emeralds.
