Pantone Names Emerald the Color of the Year for 2013

Happy new year! I hope you’re having an awesome 2013.

Pantone, the authority in color, has released it’s color of the year for 2013. While last year we got the citrusy goodness of Tangerine Tango, this year it’s all about Emerald.

emeraldSwatchWhat does that mean for you? Well, if you like this foresty jewel tone, you’ll be able to find a lot more emerald goodies (whether clothes or makeup or home décor) than in previous years. If you like to fol.low color trends, now you know what part of the rainbow to focus on.

Also, I’ll be showcasing some awesome emerald stuff right here on Makeup Files in the coming weeks.

What do you think of Pantone’s choice for color of the year?

  1. I love emerald so I’m very thrilled about this! Can’t wait for all the emerald clothes and makeup to hit the stores.

    Happy New Year, Trisha! I wish you all the best.

  2. Happy New Year, Trisha! Another emerald (well, all shades of green, really) lover here! Anyways, it suits me far more than tangerine did.

  3. omg I have that font somewhere on my computer too and I love it! lol totally random but it’s so cute. Greens of all shades are my favorite, so I’m happy that this is the ‘color of the year.’ Although tbh, I’m not sure how I feel about the whole color of the year to begin with, just because all the brands start doing it, and I start getting sick of it after the fifth collection….why don’t we just do all colors every year hahaha. Can’t wait to see what awesome emerald stuff you’ll be showcasing though!

    • I don’t totally understand the color of the year business either. For me, it’s just one of those fun things to talk about. Like ruffles and how Katy Perry is totally downgrading now that she’s with John Mayer.
