Pantone Names Its 2013 Color of the Year
By Cara Chronis December 06,2012
Pantone has released their color of the year for 2013 and drumroll pleaseâ€¦its emerald! Pantone describes the shade as â€œLively. Radiant. Lushâ€¦. a color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony”. Sophisticated and luxurious, emerald is often associated with gemstones and according to Pantone itâ€™s also the color of beauty and new life in many cultures and religions. Weâ€™ve already spotted emerald on the runways and canâ€™t wait until this shade starts appearing in our outfits. Emerald leads the pack of colors weâ€™ll be seeing a lot of during the coming year, dusk blue, grayed jade, linen, poppy red, African Violet, tender shoots, lemon zest, and nectarine. The 2012 color of the year, tangerine tango, popped up in our makeup pallets when Sephora and Pantone collaborated for the Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Collection. Hereâ€™s hoping for another glam collaboration â€“ this time in emerald! Check out our favorite picks in this haute hue.
