Pantone Color of the Year for 2013: Emerald

I’m Claire Voyant! I subconsciously knew that they were going to choose Emerald green as the color of 2013 ;) I have been loving this color for the Fall/Winter season and have been incorporating it not only in my wardrobe, but makeup as well. Emerald green to me is such a strong, vibrant, bold, and ‘notice me’ color that looks amazing on everyone – it’s almost a Universal color if you will. It is said that “green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum.” So naturally one is attracted to the beautiful hue and in regards to fashion, it is a color that will give someone confidence and get noticed no doubt! Here’s an article by the LA Times today about it:,0,4276579.story

How will you wear this color? Here are a few thrifted examples that I’ve worn recently (notice the Emerald eye shadow used as eye liner to create a ‘cat eye’ effect – pretty nifty if I do say so myself):
