The Oantone Institute has announced the colour of the year 2013: Emerald Green
While green symbolises nature, freshness, inexperience and hope, this
jewel toned green is characterised as sophisticated, lively and radiant.

Das Pantone Institut hat die Farbe Emerald Green – Smaragdgrün – zur Farbe 2013 gekürt.
Während Grün Natur, Frische, Unerfahrenheit und Hoffnung verkörpert, steht dieses brilliante Grün für mondän, lebendig und strahlend.

It is a very new and exciting colour to come in fashion this year. Do you like it and will you follow this trend?
I am really looking forward to it and have put together some colour combinations. For going out I would chose emerald in combination with black.
Gefällt Euch diese neue, aufregende Farbe und werdet Ihr sie tragen? 
Ich finde sie wunderschön und habe ein paar Stylings zusammengestellt. Zum Ausgehen würde ich Smaragdgrün zu Schwarz tragen, das macht es besonders edel und Schwarz ist einfach meine Basisfarbe. 
However, I am also loving the clean white-mix for summer’s days.

Designer Tracy Reese (even First Lady Mrs O. is a fan of her dresses) says about the colour choice:

„Mentholescence, and White would be a close second — the freshness of these colors paired together is really extraordinary.“
Für tolle Sommertage gefällt mir die Kombi mit frischem Weiss beonders gut!
My gorgeous daughter Alena already got the look! 
Meine Tochter Alena hat die Farbe bereits für sich entdeckt. Superschönes Styling, meine Süße!

Shops here in Germany still have their SALES on while I had more than enough of winter(clothes) and I am so much in need of spring…

Watch out for my next post on another new fashion trend for SS 2013.
Thank you for following!

Ich habe schon längst genug vom Winter und Winterkleidung und warte sehnsüchtig auf den Frühling! Aber ich befürchte, das wird noch ein bisschen dauern…

Nächstes Mal stelle ich Euch einen weiteren, neuen Trend für 2013 vor.
Danke für’s Lesen!

    This colour is really great but it's not the easiest one to wear, I'd say. 🙂 loved your picks!

      Sandra, it is a very special and strong colour you are right. I think I will stick with black or white.

      Amy, thank you, I gave her this handbag for her 18th birthday from "Bimba y Lola" from Spain last year and she was over the moon 🙂

    Your daughter is beautiful! The color looks great on her too. I'm on the fence on emerald green, though I don't know why because I really like green in general. I have a bright kelly green jacket that looks like it might pass as emerald, but I don't know if I'm going to invest in the color or not. I guess it depends on what I find!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. (:

      Thank you so much, Heather! The ZARA blouse Alena is wearing, is actually mine 😉
      Unless I am very sure on a strong colour like Emerald I would probably just get a couple of accessories.

      Thanks, Alison. In winter I think it can be a very sophisticated look for women with dark hair and pale skin. I am looking foward to a summer outfit with a bit of a tanned skin and black.

      Really love your blog!

    Loving your emerald green touches!

    I am so disappointed.. I love green, bottle green, dark green, lime green. It is such a good colour for me. But it was never a fashion colour, therefore, never in the shops.
    Now green IS a fashion colour and it is emerald. Which has too much blue in it to be flattering for me. Such a shame.
    Fortunately for your daughter it is a good colour. She looks great.

    • 28. Januar 2013 / 22:12

      I know what you mean. The cold hint of blue in it doesn't suit every woman. But I think it is great that you already discovered _your_ personal tone of green! And you should go for it.
      I am looking foward to your next post!
