Breaking news: According to Pantone, the authority on color, the big color of 2013 is…EMERALD. Of course, this announcement is like feeding candy to a writer as the shade begs for cliches like “Green with Envy.” Headlines aside, I’m happy that 2013 is all about this vibrant jewel tone as it’s flattering on all skin tones, works on all ages and looks great in both makeup and fashion. Call it moss, jade, emerald, kelly green or whatever sounds good to you. As long as you incorporate this hue, you’ll be set for the New Year. Take a cue from my dog Penelope! She’s already rocking the color with this emerald green bow in her hair.
To get you ahead of the trend, here are a few fashion and beauty picks to choose from.
