Pantone's 2013 Color of the Year: Emerald

Pantone Goes For the Green With Its 2013 Color of the Year

Tell your tangerine (2012's Pantone color of the year) to tango right out the door, because the color experts at Pantone have just named emerald the 2013 color of the year. Described as lively, radiant, and lush, the color was seen on the runways of Stella McCartney (eyeliner), Christian Dior (eye shadow), Marimekko (eye shadow), and Kenzo (nails and eye shadow, pictured above). "Symbolically, emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal, and rejuvenation, which is so important in today's complex world," Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said. "This powerful and appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors."

Emerald is such a versatile color because it's a new kind of neutral. It works well in both warm and cool temperatures, and pops on a variety of different skin tones and eye colors. Wear it with peach, rose, or aubergine for a complementary effect, or swipe on your nails when you need a color boost, but don't want something too overpowering. In addition, just as Sephora and Pantone linked up for 2012 with its Sephora + Pantone color collection, the beauty brands will be at it again for 2013; look for the launch of the line exclusively at Sephora this March.
