Go for Green…2013′s IT colour.

According to Pantone, emerald green is IT.

Providing professional colour standards for the design industry (encompassing fashion and décor), Pantone declared the luxurious green hue king. According to the company’s official statement, the “vivid, verdant green, enhances our sense of well-being further by inspiring insight, as well as promoting balance and harmony”.

And as always, designers and celebrities are way ahead of us ‘mere mortals’. Hues of green were already spotted on the runway and the red carpet.

I myself am not a huge fan of green, and I will definitely not be wearing green, other than maybe through accessorising.

But luckily there is a green hue for every skin tone, so even if you’re like me, not wanting to actually wear green, you can bring it in through accessorising.

A green for every season:
