Spring 2013 Trends: EMERALD CITY

emerald coverGood morning, my sweet readers! Another day, another post! We are picking up right where we left off, in the middle of our Spring 2013 guide. So far, we’ve had textures and prints galore, it’s only fair that we move on to the IT colors of the season. Last year, Pantone dubbed Tangerine the shade of the year. For this 2013, it’s all about Emerald (there’s even a Wizard of Oz movie coming out soon). Emerald is a color that can flatter almost any skin complexion. It’s a strong hue, with lots of personality and it’s sexy too, just ask a couple of fellas.

The Spring 2013 shows were packed with many shades of green (from mint and sea foam, to teal and grass, it’s gonna bee a green, green season), but it’s Emerald the one that takes the center stage. So like my favorite Batman villain, the one and only, Poison Ivy, let’s embrace it and start shopping!


  • Acne / Burberry Prorsum / Ralph Lauren
  • Jonathan Saunders / Dolce & Gabbana / Vera Wang

MUST-HAVE PIECES: The emerald dress is a staple in a girl’s closet. An emerald maxi skirt, you’ll thank me later for this one. A pair of emerald tapered trousers, ideal for color-blocking duties. Sandals, give your sexy feet a punch of color with a pair of Emerald heels.
