Pantone Color of the Year 2013


I don’t know how many of you follow fashion or home decorating sites/trends, but I love when Pantone announce their color of the year or particular season. A lot of times, I would go shopping and wonder why some colors were more popular than others. Or why certain shades were getting more visibility than others. Now I know that it’s because of things like this.

Who is Pantone you ask? According to their About Us section of their page,  they are a “world-renowned authority on color and provider of  color systems and leading technology for the selection and accurate communication of color across a variety of industries. The PANTONE® name is known worldwide as the standard language for color communication from designer to manufacturer to retailer to customer.”

2013 brought about the announcement of a new color of the year. Emerald.  I love emerald and have to confess that I don’t wear enough of it. So, I am vowing to embrace this shade into my wardrobe for 2013, starting with this beauty.



What do you think of their color of the year choice? Do you wear green now? Do you think this will influence your shopping decisions at all?
