What I'm Wearing | Emerald Green: 2013 Color of the Year!

9:00 AM

Every year, Pantone, the global authority on color, watches the trends, designers and brands to see which colors are making a splash. After conducting polls and research, the institute picks one color that will act as a sort of "running thread" throughout the tapestry of fashion and design trends. Their pick for 2013 is lively, radiant and lush emerald green.
Emerald is a jewel tone. It mixes perfectly with rich purples, blues, reds, golds and brightens up black like what I'm wearing.
I decided to pair my green pants with a black turtleneck sweater and my black cape.
Emerald is a perfect hue for accessories such as handbags and jewelry.
It's not surprising that emerald green is the "IT" color for 2013.  It was already popping up everywhere back when I first made these pants.  It was one of my must have colors all summer.
Do YOU have any emerald green in your wardrobe or fabric stash?  If not, do you plan on incorporating any?
