No need to walk down any yellow brick roads--in 2013, every city is an emerald 17-5641 TCX city! The Pantone Color Institute annually scours the world for inspiration in order to bring us their official color of the year and in 2013 it's bright, flattering emerald. A rich color that inspires insight and promotes balance and harmony, Lee Eiseman, Executive Director at Pantone, says this color is appropriate for 2013 because it promotes change, renewal, and clarity in a complex world, but we love it for its style cred! Celebs from Kate Middleton to Kristin Wiig have already been spotted in this bright jewel tone, and our host Jessica Stam has all the best (and affordable) emerald picks for your closet this year!
A Harmonious Hue for a New Year
PURPLE is gaining in prominence.
Always a salable story. Frosted blues, dusty pinks and butter creams add a cozy touch to chase the winter blues away. The pallette is shifting from stronger hues to softer lighter shades. Brigh pinks with red while powdery pinks add a more feminine touch. Warm caramel and butterscotch create a bridge to yellow.
METALS. Fashionistas join WALL STREET in their love for gold security.
Golds, champagne golds, silvers, pewter.Whether gilding the Lilly or quietly glamorous, gold is no longer just for evening wear.
Dolce and Gabbana "it reminds us of the sun of Sicily, the warmth of traditions and it is very dramatic while conveying security".
People are tired of the recession and are maybe thumbing their nose at it.
In big purchase items like cars, metallic silver has been the #1 hue of choice for 10 years straight.
