Wearing Pantone Color of the Year Emerald at Work

Emerald had been declared color of the year by the color trendsetting gurus over at Pantone. Professional wardrobes are normally primarily made of black, navy, brown, and other very interesting neutral colors like nude, camel, and beige. Like red, emerald is a classic color that can easily be incorporated into your office wardrobe to spice things up. Whether layered under a suit, used as the focal point as a dress, or highlighted with an accessory, emerald is a timeless color that is appropriate in all seasons and looks great on all skin tones. I would just avoid wearing this gem stone color too close to St. Patrick's Day; you'd be just asking for leprechaun comments. Here are some of my favorite emerald pieces for work.

2. Black Halo Jackie Belted Garbardine Sheath Dress in Shamrock via Nordstrom $345
3. Dooney & Bourke Janine Bag in Emerald via Zappos $238
