But 2013 won’t be emerald’s first time trending on the red carpet. Either there’s a shady leak, or there are more than a few stylish stars with fashion ESP. Because Emma Stone, Kourtney Kardashian, andKate Middleton are just a few of the ahead-of-the-curve celebs who sported the green hue in 2012.
It’s not hard to see why emerald has climbed its way to the top of the color pyramid and found a place in next year’s fashion forecast.
The deep green is a sophisticated way to bring color into your look, and unlike lime and seafoam, it flatters a wide range of skin tones.
And it’s easy to dress up or down; wear as an accent or allover. Working the trend into their everyday ensembles, Olivia Palermo hit a home run in an emerald blazer and yellow jeans, while Jennifer Hudson used the rich shade to break up an all-black ensemble.
But the most of-the-moment way to wear these hues is from head to toe. Rachel McAdams and Reese Witherspoon have proven emerald to be an elegant alternative to black for evening-wear, while Revenge‘s Ashley Madekwe showed off the color’s trendy side in an emerald pantsuit for a chic holiday party look.
With the color authority’s endorsement, we expect an emerald explosion for 2013, so if you haven’t already, there’s no better time to go green.
