According to Pantone.com, Emerald is the color of the year. It is a beautiful color! Also Pantone has the 2013 spring color trend which is vibrant. There is so much that can be done with these colors. Check out the photo below...
What I am most excited about, is the 60's are back! According to the article in Bead Design Studio, this is where a touch of neon comes to play, geometric designs on tops and dresses, and the sweet stripes. The make up and hair trend will even have the vibes of the 60's. I am not sure about having hair parted down the middle, but I love the big and teased hair! The make up will focus on the eyes with cat eyed like liners and some serious eye lashes. Yes! I have an excuse to wear fake eyelashes!!!
Another thing that you might start to see more of in the jewelry making world, Swarovski Elements has added neon colors to their Crystal Pearl line and has added Astral Pink to the Crystals. It is a nice eye popping color!
