Colors have been flying fast and furious, with Pantone's last color Tangerine Tango being replaced for the winter months by Cobalt Blue. Now that spring is right around the corner, we have a new reigning color for 2013- Emerald Green. It's vivid, vibrant, and vivacious and it's supposed to remind us that life is worth living and that we have an undeniable tie to the natural colors found in nature.

Emerald green mixes well with other colors, and can be worn as a simple silky t-shirt, or a shimmering evening gown.

I decided to reach back and grab the two previous hot colors and do some color-blocking. After all, if you have tangerine, cobalt, and now emerald in your wardrobe, it stands to reason that you might want to combine the three at some point.
