Thanks for coming back to join us mid-week!
Yesterday I left off with a question: What if Emerald is just the starting point?
What if Green is the color of the year? How would you add it to your wardrobe? How can you be “trendy” without following unflattering trends? What if you added the Color of the Year for the next 10 years… what would your closet look like?
Ok… first question. Let’s call the color of the year Green.
How do you add green to your wardrobe?
If you have the basic neutrals (remember Navy is THE all-time best)… Black, Navy, Grey, Tan, Cream and White… with ALL of their various hues.
If you have neutrals you can add Green to any outfit. PICTURES
- · Add a Green Jacket to your wardrobe
- · Pick up a Green set of flats, heels or running shoes
- · Grab some Green accessories, gem stone earrings, bracelets or necklaces
- · Find a great Green purse
Here are a few webpages to look at for Emerald Ideas: To find more ideas go to Google... type in Pantone Emerald 2013 and look at Images... you will see lots of ideas!
This is where the swatches really start becoming useful. Shari’s swatches will show you which colors are best for these “pop” color accents to your wardrobe. The small investment now can help you save on getting pieces that don’t quite work for your coloring.
Back to the questions: So in order to be “trendy” with Green accents you will need to pick up a few and wear them. If the color is great on you, you will be noticed as a beautiful, put together woman who understands how to best present herself… which is WAY more fun than attempting trends not meant for “normal” women.
So this is a question for you ladies… If you added a color every year for the next 10 years what would your closet look like? How would it be different from your closet today?
For me? Most of the green in my closet is Green Bay Packer fan-wear. I have a few green tops and now thinking about it… they are a really nice addition to my regular outfits. I think that getting a few more under jacket shirts might be on my shopping list next time around.
I hope this adventure into the Pantone was a great experience for you and helped you step out of your “normal”… it did for me!
