Today's Everyday Fashion: Color of the Year

Inspiration: Pinterest

Emerald was just named the color of the year (no really, it was). I personally plan to celebrate all year long, and decided to kick things off with an emerald + mustard + turquoise + leopard combo I spotted on Pinterest and have been meaning to try ever since. What's your favorite way to wear emerald?

Trench: New York & Co, $50 (similarsimilarsimilarsimilar)

Necklace: H&M, $18 (similar, similar)
Jeans: Lauren Conrad c/o Kohl's, $34
Shoes: Banana Republic, $60 (similar, similar, similar, similar)

  2. I love green, so I was pretty excited when I saw emerald was the color of the year.  I like your color combo, epsecially with the leopard added in.  I like wearing black and leopard or white with green. Kind of boring, but it just looks pulled together.  Heather

  3. Since I can't find cheaper emerald skinnies in long, I'm wearing emerald on top. Gem tones go great with my skin tone, so the more emerald the better.

    I'm eagerly awaiting this top that I ordered from Forever21:

    I'm thinking the fit will be very hit or miss, but it might look good tucked in for work. And then of course I couldn't pass on ordering it in the royal blue color (obsessed with that color!!!). So I'm hoping they fit well.

  8. I like your outfit but I am not a fan of green.  So color of the year or not, I am not running out to buy anything green. Maybe a good excuse to buy a pair of shoes though.

  10. Love those pants - I had a pair of green skinnies in my hand a couple of weeks ago and I'm kicking myself for not buying them!

  11. Are skinnies the only cut of jeans that are in? I don't own any and don't think they look well for my body shape and age.

  12. Great outfit. My favorite way of wearing emerald is in a cardigan. I haven't braved the whole green pant thing yet. You look fabulous.

    Agi:)

  13. I love the leopard with it! I'm going to have to try that for sure!

  14. I have already invested in new pieces in emerald - a dress, silk shirt, and cardigan. I can't wait to start mixing and matching with items I already have. I was thinking about wearing the dress with my leopard pumps and now that I see how it looks with your jeans, I'm sold on the combo. Thanks again for helping me with outfit ideas.

  15. I can't wear skinney jeans, but did find some colors in straight leg (brick red and black) they look just as nice. This blog even got me inspired to buy a camel blazer and bubble necklaces. I have been branching out with my outfits. I can pull some of them off even at my age. (48)

  16. No, go to JcPenney they have some straight leg styles in colors.

  17. What a great outfit for an class (would do a kitten heel OR flat to get around campus)!  xo, your friends at College Lifestyles!  http://collegelifestyles.org

  18. Absolutely not! I think every cut is in style right now - flare, bootcut, straight, skinny - you name it. For a similar look as skinny but more forgiving try something in a straight fit. If that's still too slim then I suggest bootcut!

  19. Those pants are perfect! I love the way it looks with the leopard.

  25. I was super excited when I saw that announcement. Emerald is so pretty and I'm even more thrilled that I already own jeans in that color. I'm waiting for them to come out with deep emerald tops and dresses - those always give off such an elegant vibe!

  26. Also loving emerald with hot pink, navy, mustard, navy blue - the list goes on and on.  It can really be the grounding color for all the bright things we've been buying in the past year.

  32. This is how bad I am. :) 

    I could not remember what last years "color of the year" was. Do any of you remember it? It was Tangerine.  Here's a link to past colors. You will need to scroll down a bit to see the colors they chose. i just found it interesting. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pantone

  33. I want green pants!! Love it with the leopard--I paired those two just the other day! :)

  34. An emerald dress is always gorgeous! It's really easy to make it more sophisticated with a really dark shade or to make it more dressy with adding sequins to a dress that is a brighter emerald.

  37.  I saw very similar ones at Payless yesterday- they were the Christian Siriano brand.  Quality seemed good, not regular cheapie Payless.  I think they were $35.

  38. I'm excited that Emerald has been named the color of 2013.  It's my favorite color!  I've been hesitant to try colored jeans because I think I would tend to pair them with either white or black.
