Each year Pantone, the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, announces the official color of the year. This year? It's Green - PANTONE® 17-5641 Emerald, to be specific - a lively, radiant, lush green.
In its yearly press release Pantone describes Emerald as
"most often associated with brilliant, precious gemstones, the perception of Emerald is sophisticated and luxurious. Since antiquity, this luminous, magnificent hue has been the color of beauty and new life in many cultures and religions. It’s also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity – no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity."
So there's your horoscope for the year - growth, renewal, prosperity, healing and unity.
How will you incorporate Emerald into your wardrobe this year? Here are a few of my favorite Emerald-hued items from some of my favorite retailers.
