Trend Chic: Emerald Green

Since 1999, Pantone, the world's foremost authority on identifying, matching and communicating color standards, has chosen a Color of the Year for each subsequent year, which is indicative of emerging trends and reflective of global sentiment.  2013's Color of the Year is Emerald.
1.  London Times -Printed Matte Jersey Keyhole Halter Dress in Cream/Orange
2.  Cole Haan -Village Zip Satchel in Emerald
3.  MIA -Zeus in Natural
An exciting way to wear this bright, vibrant and ubiquitous color of 2013, is to do so in an amazing pattern like with this dress (1).  The 'it' color of the year, is daring in a chic satchel (2) which can double as your 'it' bag for the year.  Sandals in a natural color (3), play off the rich undertones of the dress, allowing the brilliance of emerald to shine.
1, 2, 3 Chic!

1, 2, 3 Chic!
 How I Styled It?
1, 2, 3 Styling is fun and easy when you know where to begin; Pantone's Color Snapshot for Spring 2013, has displayed all the 'it' colors for the spring (and fall) in addition to how they pair well with emerald green and each other.  Keeping these colors in mind, I shopped for items that I can wear with emerald colored staples I bought (bag, shoes), and ones I already had (pants and dresses), so I could maximize my emerald based looks, without being drowned out by this jewel of a color.  This dress from London Times, came ready made with emerald, nectarine, Monaco blue and poppy red!  Style Tip: Check out the fall color forecast and buy winter items that are on clearance now in these colors, so you won't have to shell out big bucks for clothing come fall!  SN
