Inspired By: Pantone's Color of the Year {Emerald Green}

I don't know about you, but I'm really excited that Pantone's Color of the Year is emerald green! Pantone calls it "lively, radiant, lush...a color of elegance and beauty that enchances our sense of well-being, balance, and harmony." Emerald green such a rich, beautiful color that can be used for any season in so many ways (clothing, accessories, beauty, and home decor). I'm looking forward to wearing it this year and finding new ways to embrace this wonderful color.

If you're a dress-wearing kind of gal, then slip on an emerald green dress this winter. Pair it with a quilted leather sleeve moto jacket and black tights to keep warm, metallic cap-toe flats, and green earrings. Live in a warm climate? A green and blue maxi dress, black studded sandals, blue panama hat, and cute blue and green bracelet will do the trick. Finally, sip your coffee or tea in a Pantone color of the year mug.

Maybe jeans and trousers are more your thing; in that case put on a pair of green skinny jeans to go with your striped peplum top, beige cardigan, lovely green necklace, and black maryjane wedges. For a day at work, go for an all green outfit: mint lace sweater, emerald green pants, black trench coat, green watch, zig zag stud earrings, and green-soled oxfords. For your home, have fun with a green clock.

If you'd prefer emerald green outerwear for a bold pop of color in the winter, try a blazer with a dark purple dress, green bow belt, green and gold necklace, and black booties. To keep warm, put on a green pea coat, navy polka dot blouse, skinny jeans, navy flats, and a green ring. If you're a constant notetaker or list maker, opt for a green journal and pen this year. Don't forget your green nail polish!

Are you a girl who loves her accessories? Dress in a white long-sleeved button up, yellow jeans, green and silver watch, structured satchel, and green bow flats. For a fancy affair, wear a black zipper-detail blazer, pale pink blouse, swingy black skirt, green earrings, and green foldover clutch. For make up, try green eyeshadow (or eyeliner!), and for home, add a fun zig zag tray.

Do you like the color green? Will you be wearing it this year?

  1. You just made me want to invest in emerald colored denim this year!

  2. emerald green is such an awesome color!! way better than last years orange! that was terrible! the emerald double breasted jacket is so awesome, i really want it. I guess I will have to rock my green jeans this year. but that's a good thing because i love green.

    1. I agree; emerald green is much better than tangerine tango!

  3. i've never really was drawn to emerald when i went shopping, but it is gorgeous color. i think it's fun as a pant color since it'll make all your shirts pop like crazy, and that dress you picked out with the blue blocking on the bottom is SO pretty. i wish i had it haha!

    1. Thanks!! I really want to get an emerald green skirt or dress!
