A trend that seems to be a staple for 2013 is Emerald, you're seeing it in fashion in design, paint colours, you name it. Now Emerald can be a very flattering colour as it is in the jewel tones which is quite flattering on a lot of skin tones. I always love jewel tones as it somehow brings a special element to the design of the the ensemble or whatever item it may be. It's forgiving. Now in every trend it must be done right, it's already a colour that can stand on it's own without an added element although if you don't mind being a showstopper there's always sequins; maybe in a pattern or uniquely draped, not in a whole pants suit (separates) keep it crisp.
