Green is the color most commonly associated with nature, the environmental movement, spring, hope and envy. Green in women’s fashion is a trend that comes and goes. Emerald green is the 2013 color of the year, as proclaimed by Pantone, the world-renowned authority on color. Emerald is a lively, radiant, lush green, according to Pantone.
“The most abundant hue in nature, the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally-appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.”
Many baby-boomer grandmothers today remember when the color green became a wildly popular hue in the 1960′s styles. Shades of lime, leaf and chartreuse perfectly captured that go-go, psychedelic groove. At the end of the 1980s, green once again surfaced on the fashion scene. American designers such as Calvin Klein and Anne Klein featured a multitude of shades, from apple to lichen.
