The color professionals Pantone have announced their colour forecast for 2013 and this year’s color trend is emerald.

And no doubt the color won’t be limited to fashion – Pantone influences accessories, interior design, cosmetics and even graphics, so you can expect to see a tinge of green everywhere you look throughout the year.

Still, I like these emerald pieces that Marks & Spencer, Missguided and La Redoute have added to their spring/summer collections, and I’ll certainly whipping out my old favorite emerald eye shadow and sparkly Pin Up Couture high heels (above) to get into the spirit of 2013!
