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

This photo of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, (below) wearing a Mulberry dress in emerald back in October 2012 probably influenced the decision to name 2013 as the emerald year. 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.

This is one of my favorite colours and I’m delighted that there will be more of the rich green colours in the shops this year, but I’m worried that I’ll get sick of seeing it everywhere – I still can’t look at lilac after the mauve-overload at the turn of the century. 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!
