What hue is new for 2013?   According to Pantone, the undisputed global authority on color, Emerald, a radiant, lush and lively green,  will command your attention over the next 12 or so months.  Look for the jewel-tone  to be seen in almost every where in fashion,beauty and home decor.

The timing is welcome as we face a New Year of uncertainty when it comes to world peace and economics.   According to Pantone color wizards, the vivid, verdant green enhances a sense of well-being and promotes balance and harmony.  For centuries,  Emerald has stood for healing and unity.  Who can't resist associating that color with the magnificent and brillant gemstone of the same name?

At Sydney's Closet, we can't wait to use the luxurious and oh-sophisticated color on an evening gown.  We're thinking of maybe an iridescent taffeta that catches the light - on and off the dance floor! Emerald, often associated with a precious gemstone, exudes a sense of sophistication and luxury and makes a strong formal wear statement as you exude a sense of elegance, sophistication and luxury.

Don't stop with your dress!  Emerald flatters any eye color and even works as nail color.  Watch for Sephora to debut a beauty collection in March 2103 featuring Pantone 17-5641 Emerald.
