And the Pantone Color of the Year is….

Emerald Green!  An emerging favorite in fashion and decor, this lush jewel tone  is popping up everywhere.  Whether it’s a fabulous pair of trousers (hello, fancy pants) or a stunning evening dress, emerald tones add a luxe feel to a tired winter wardrobe.

How cute are these trousers on Blair Eadie?  For a similar look, try J.Crew’s Cafe Capri in Jade Jacquard.  Emerald is also a striking color for evening–I mean just look at this Gucci stunner worn by Natasha Poly at Cannes!

If you’re still hunting for the perfect holiday party dress, do check out this Shoshanna sequin shift.  I’m obsessed–so much so that I actually just ordered it for an upcoming event from Rent the Runway (my first RTR experience).  I’ll let you know how it works out!

As a color of nature, emerald shades also transcend pretty seamlessly into the home.   Case in point, Peter Dunham’s fiddle fig leaf is slowly becoming as prevalent and versatile as ikat.

I’ve also been obsessed with this malachite pillow from society social.  Mixed with a black and white palette, this print would really make an impact.

And how about this hollywood regency style interior featured in Lonny

Loving the malachite rug and wallpaper paired with black, white and leopard.  Can you say green with envy!
