Pantone declared emerald green as the “it” color of 2013. However, lots of shades of green are popping up everywhere, as well. In fact, I’d like to nominate the broad color of green to be the “it” color of the moment!
Here are some of our favorite runway looks, as well as 5 outfits at the end of today’s post to inspire you for spring! Our outfits incorporate another “it” color, coral.
