When colour authority Pantone declared 17-5641 Emerald the Colour of the Year for 2013, they made a bold choice – but isn’t bold exciting and invigorating? Survey your closet. How much black, grey, white and navy is in there? I like colour but I admit, the contents of my closet are comfortably, predictably dark. I like to be grounded in at least one dark neutral. But emerald is delightfully whimsical, making it a trend I can live with. Here are four items in emerald that I think you’ll agree make the colour appealing and approachable:

1 Mad Men Collection Tipped Shift Dress, $140, Banana Republic

2 Slim Cropped Print Pants, $49.95, Gap

3 Gold Coast Maryanne Bag, $478, Kate Spade

4 Printed Flip Flops, $50, Tory Burch

    I’ve got the flip flips in white and brown, but I may have to snag these ones too!

    The flip flops are definitely an easy way to wear the trend!
