This Spring: We’re Seeing Green

By on May 1, 2013, in Fashion Trends, Soft Surroundings

There’s no color that captures spring like green. The most abundant hue in nature, green is symbolic of lush renewal. Sparkling and radiant, it captures a sense of liveliness, well-being, and balance.

Pantone, a global leader in color trends, has named “Emerald Green” Color of the Year for 2013. The biggest designers on the runway to the smallest artisan boutiques are showing green in every delectable, delightful shade from intense jewel tones to cool mint tones in easy silhouettes that encompass the mood of the season.

Shades of green combine well with white and other neutral hues like natural, linen, and nude, as well as rosy tones of peach and pink – and of course denim in both dark and light washes. You can also introduce the color into your wardrobe with stripes or a simple pattern.


If you don’t want to commit to green in your garments, opt for a pop of color. Green accessories abound this season from earrings to scarves to bags and shoes.

If you have a lighter complexion, go for shades of soft jade and sea glass, if you have a darker complexion, you can deepen your shades to pine and olive. Red and auburn hair is a fantastic backdrop for a wide array of greens, and if your hair is silver or ashy-toned, cool-based greens look best. No matter what your skin or hair color, jewel-toned greens look marvelously elegant on everyone.

Great color compliments all skin tones – don’t be afraid to wear it! You’ll feel brighter and happier, reflecting the fresh and fabulous new season.

    My absolute favorite color is green. My eyes are green as well. Glad to see that green is the “in” color for this season/year!
