13 Emerald Dresses in Pantone’s 2013 Color of the Year

If most people think of the number 13 as unlucky, Pantone is out to neutralize that. This 2013, the color authority has declared none other than lucky emerald green as the Color of the Year.

Emerald: a color reminiscent of leprechauns, pots of gold and four-leaf clovers. In spring/summer, emerald green is lush and vibrant. Then in the fall/winter, it transforms into a luxurious and elegant jewel tone.

Emerald is actually a very versatile color and needless to say, we can’t wait to wear it all year round.

From day dresses to date dresses, here are 13 lucky dresses in emerald, Pantone’s 2013 Color of the Year.  Get ready to get your green on!
