Emerald Empire

I am sure by now you guys by know about this year's color, announced by Pantone!
Its the gorgeous color emerald green that has replaced last year's vibrant color Tangerine.
Green has always been my favourite color, because its the color of nature. The color has always been a strong part of the fashion trends. 
After all no one can not love the
enchanting color of harmony, nature and beauty!

The year has just begun, and we are already seeing a speck of this lovely color everywhere, be it tops, gowns, bags, shoes or home furnishing items.

A few things that I loved : 

You can see commoners as well as celebs donning emerald color dresses and accessories. 

This color was seen all around on the runways at Michael Kors, 
Nanette Lepore and Vivienne Tam, golden globe awards where celebs very nicely worked out a touch of emerald in their looks, with clutches, rings, earrings etc. 
It is quite being experimented with, in makeup too! 

Here are a few pictures of pretty celebs and fashionistas flaunting the color at events and runway.

I too decided to wear this beautiful emerald-ish gown and styled it with few chunky gold accessries around my neck and with this hot red bag, and my black pumps.

And now I will take you to the pictures.

And last not but not the least, here are a few tips on how to wear the color : 

* Avoid being emrelad from head to toe, any color in an overdose just spoils the whole beauty of it.
* Play contrast game with a bright color outfit with emerald nail color or shoes, or vice versa.
* Emerald jewelries can dazzle up any outfit you are wearing, so pick up beautiful rings, earrings or statement neck pieces for sure!
* If you are scared to carry the color and think it is too bold for you, then add a peck of the color by carrying a pretty emerald green bag or heels.
* You should absolutely try emerald green makeup, look diva like with eye liner or eye shadow of the color.

Truly quoted by Pantone : "Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony."
