While our store's always decked out in pink, we're also a huge fan of the color green here at Rissy Roo's because the local high school's color in the town our store's in (we're right behind the high school!) is green. So, we were of course excited when Pantone named emerald green their color of the year for 2013! A color that's abundant in nature, the lush, vibrant hue is said to instil balance and harmony.
It's the end of the first month of the new year, but the color is already everywhere! Celebrities like Zoe Saldana and Alicia Keys wore the color, and it will undoubtedly be seeing many more trips down the red carpet, so keep a look-out. It's a great color to wear on anything from your nails to a winter jacket, so make sure to give it a go in your outfits. As a rule of thumb, emerald green and black always work together, but you can also pair it with white and other shades of green.
With prom right around the corner, it's also a perfect color to choose for your dress. Wearing this exuberant color is without a doubt a great way to stand out from the crowd, and show off your keen fashion sense, too! Since we're so excited about this year's go-to color, we picked out or favorite 3 emerald green prom dresses - check them out below!
1. Sherri Hill style 1456 - An asymmetrical one shoulder chiffon evening gown with empire waistline and rhinestone embellished trim.
2. Panoply style 14573 - A strapless sweetheart mermaid evening gown with a low torso sequin bodice, chunky A.B. rhinestone bust trim and a full tulle mermaid skirt with a side front slit.
3. Scala style P4043 - An elegant and simple beaded and sequined dress with an asymmetrical neckline.
