Although emerald was dubbed 2013’s Color of the Year by Pantone, I’m still craving it well into 2014. It all started when I incorporated it into all my holiday outfits — then I never looked back. Don’t get me wrong, I’m in love with this year’s color, radiant orchid, but there’s something about this luxe jewel tone that I can’t steer away from. It could be that emerald is a perfect winter weather hue, or that it can be rocked on clothes, makeup, and jewelry — but making it my Color of the Moment was a no brainer.
Emerald can be paired with countless colors, but one of my favorites in particular is gold — the combination of emerald + gold is just so luxurious and regal. You can also never go wrong with emerald + leopard. If you’re feeling extra sassy, try pairing all three! Check out some of my favorite looks below.
So who’s still craving more emerald with me? Radiant orchid is great and all, but I’m just not quite finished with this rich, royal tint — 2013 like just ended though so it’s okay. Right?
Take a look at some of my favorite emerald pieces below!
