Since Emerald is Pantone’s 2013 Color of The Year, we thought we’d share a few different ways to incorporate this jewel tone into your wardrobe. Read on to see three different ways contributor Chelsea Taylor styled the color…
When wearing a jewel tone as rich as emerald, you want to choose wisely when pairing it with other shades. One complimentary color you can use is a royal or navy blue. These two colors create an elegance that would be very appropriate in any professional environment. For the right amount of fun, mix with prints like a palm leaf pencil skirt and textures like the laser-cut blouse shown above.

Have you ever walked into the gym and noticed the extreme lack of color going on? Replace drab blacks and greys in your workout wear by using emerald in their place. Alternatively, this look works well for brightening up on casual days around town, or running errands.
Since spring is just about ready to peek around the corner, it’s time to start thinking in brighter hues. Couple
your deep emeralds with lighter green options like mint, then throw in some specs of cobalt and a bright red nail or lip for a timeless, breezy look.
