Emerald City

You may have heard (and you may have not) that Emerald is the It colour of the hour.  Between our penchant for all things planet-friendly and Pantone's declaration of 'Emerald' as the official Colour of the Year for 2013, green is where it's at.  And where last year's Tangerine Tango was a little tricky (to say the least), green is refreshingly easy to pull off, whether you're blonde, brunette or even fiery red.  Not only does it flatter, but green is incredibly versatile, making you look fresh and lively one minute and sultry and sophisticated the next.  Whether you rock it head-to-toe or simply opt for a pretty green polish (stay tuned for loads of Emerald makeup coming to Sephora this spring), there are loads of ways to get your green on.

Being green might not be easy but wearing it?  That, as they say, is a whole other story (or in this case, see below...)
