One of the most highly-anticipated announcements has been made! Pantone has declared that the Color of the Year for 2013 is (drum-roll, please) Emerald!
Emerald is Pantone Color of the Year 2013
Not quite minty green, very like teal and turquoise, emerald being given this much precedence by Pantone has met with mixed responses from the fashion world.
Several designers use variations of green in their collections, especially mint green which has been all the rage since spring.

Their thoughts about the color emerald are vague at the moment, but most agree that they will consider using the shade in their designs. Several huge names in fashion have already announced that their spring collections will be largely incorporating this shade including Nanette Lepore, Tracy Reese and Marimekko.
Pantone too will be releasing makeup collections in association with Sephora early next year.
What do you think of this color? Would you sport it or do you plan on giving this one a miss?
