We're going green in 2013.
Pantone recently selected Emerald (that's Pantone 17-5641, to be exact) as its color of the year.
To arrive at the pick, the color company conducted research including polling brands and designers, surveying films in development and looking at hot travel destinations.
Expect to see more of the rich jewel tone this year in clothing, interiors and makeup (a Pantone-Sephora beauty collection based on the shade in the works).
Jenna's take: They say indifference is worse than hate, and the word pretty much sums up how I feel about this color. You won't find it in my makeup bag or living room, but I may try accessorizing with the lush hue. Check out this Pinterest board for inspiration.
Alexis's take: Fortunately, I am not indifferent to Emerald. Unfortunately, my take is two thumbs distinctly down. Perhaps it's because, as an auburn-haired girl from a proud Irish family, I was dressed this color a LOT. As soon as I was old enough to voice an opinion, I headed away from all shades of green.
What do you think? Is Emerald a breath of fresh air or are you already nostalgic for 2012's Tangerine Tango or 2011's Honeysuckle? Comment below.
