To all of
you wedding and fashion aficionados – say goodbye to Tangerine Tango and hello
to Emerald, Pantone’s new color of the year! While 2012’s Tangerine Tango
succeeded in encouraging energy, Emerald cannot be more perfect for 2013! This
hue of green is rich and also promotes a sense of stability or balance. Not
only this, but Emerald is seen as being the most sophisticated of all of the
precious stones – what kind of lady doesn’t like a bit of classiness in her
I only wish I could say I’d be brave enough to wear a dress as grand as this one on my wedding day! This bride featured on I Love Wednesdays’ blog could not look any more perfect. While I’m not too sure I’d recommend dressing this boldly for a warmer wedding, this bride’s garb in a cooler climate is sure to add elegance to any wedding! Considering that the colder months (especially in the northeast!) can make for some drearier weather, this gown will definitely add some much-needed energy to her special day! Whoever got to marry this woman is is a lucky, lucky fellow!
Alright… so this color palette for a spring
or summer may have won me over! The Emerald paired with the gold adds a hint of
sophistication and classiness, while the mint and the blush tone down the
intensity of the colors. A pop of color goes a long way – just take a look at

While this trendy gal sports this charming green in her cropped pants, as well as her blouse and statement necklace, the more reserved chick can choose just one item! Though, who can deny it? This outfit is killer with that structured blazer…SPRING/SUMMER
In the warmer seasons, you can opt for a simpler look in this radiant color! For all of you dress-lovers, try J. Crew’s Cecilia Shift Dress in Tricotine (this color is super similar to Emerald). The color is simply gorgeous and the cut of the dress could seriously flatter any body type. And, hey! Who doesn’t love a dress that can be dressed up or dressed down? Try this number out on date night or head into the office – compliments will surely follow, regardless of the occasion!
I think you guys get the point… 2013’s color is nothing short of FABULOUS!
