While most people get excited for the beginning of a new year mostly because of the “fresh slate” feeling that comes with it, fashionistas worldwide look forward to a new calendar year for the announcement of the color that will dominate their wardrobe for the next 12 months.
Last year, Pantone determined that tangerine tango was the color of 2012. Since the announcement was made, the electric orange red hue draped fashion runways around the globe, manifested itself on millions of manis and pedis, dared women to drench their lips in the bold color, and intensified numerous Quinceanera celebrations as well.
For 2013, the company that has long-picked the color of the year based on it’s current influence and on a prediction of future popularity, has determined that emerald green is the color to spotlight for the next four seasons.
Pair it with tan, black, blue or yellow, in your eye shadow, liner, mascara and nail polish, emerald green is a royal color that creates immediate impact. Therefore, 2013 Quinceanera fashionistas might want to incorporate the color in their Quinceanera dress, venue décor, or Quince theme as well.
For a bold and elegant color scheme that uses the color of 2013, purple and turquoise are great options, as well as royal blue and gold. A few Quinceanera themes that are perfect using this color palette are masquerade ball, mardi gras, peacock and under the sea.
However, pairing it with tan or white can counterbalance the intensity of emerald green. This crispy, clean, earthy combination inspires an outdoor Quinceanera, one inspired by the wild west or an eco friendly celebration as well.
If a warm and inviting celebration is what you’re hoping to have, then pair emerald green with yellow. The warmth of yellow subdues the richness of the color of 2013 without dimming its natural shine; together both colors project happiness, light and fun.
As far as your Quinceanera bouquet is concerned, a bejeweled arrangement made from brooches and pendants in this color would be captivating. The color is a great opportunity to dress your damas in elegant gowns, and accent your chambelanes’ wardrobe by including that punch of color into their boutonniere.
