Emerald – Color of the Year!

The color Emerald has been named the color of the year by Pantone. “Lively, radiant and lush green,” is how they described it. We think it’s a nice color too. Do you?

Since the color of the year has been named, at the end of last year, celebrities have been seen wearing that glorious green color – emerald. From Beyoncé’s simple but big emerald stud earrings at The 2013 Inauguration, to gorgeous silky evening dresses – they all look beautiful!

Why emerald you ask? We think it looks rich, deep and bright all at the same time. Pantone says it’s “…A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.”

We chose to focus on Angelina Jolie’s glistening emerald dress for our Dare 2 Compare feature. Angie looks absolutely magnificent! Her Versace dress is encrusted with Swarovski crystals giving it that dazzling glow. Conveniently, that green color brings out her green eyes. Although it’s hard to tell in this picture of actress Angelina, she was also wearing small emerald earrings rimmed with gold. She definitely nailed the whole emerald look!

So for those of you who have not yet heard, Barco’s NRG line came out with a new color this Spring, Envy. It is essentially the color Emerald, with a different name and super soft feel. NRG’s 3119 mock wrap scrub top is available in the new fab green color.

For nurses, wearing emerald is not only a fashion a statement. According to Pantone, the color ‘enhances our sense of well-being’, which is exactly what nurses are paid to do!

So go ahead and bring fashion to work. Go green!
