orchidEverything’s coming up…purple. Today Pantone declared Radiant Orchid (18-3224 on your fandeck) the “expressive, exotic” Color of the Year. In the wake of 2013′s Emerald, it’s a return to the tropical shades favored by the color authority in recent years, such as Tangerine Tango, Honeysuckle, Turquoise, and Mimosa.

“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple, and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love, and health,” said Pantone Color Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman in a statement announcing the pick. “It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.” Those eager to embrace the “magical, enigmatic” hue can purchase a a Pantone USB drive in Radiant Orchid or start stocking up on Pantone paint in the color of 2014, but why not simply put your (emerald) green thumb to the test with an actual orchid?

Go Green: Pantone Declares ‘Emerald’ Color of 2013

Get ready for a verdant 2013. Today Pantone declared Emerald (17-5641 on your fandeck) the “lively, radiant” Color of the Year. It’s a jewel-toned follow-up to the tropical shades favored by the color authority in recent years, such as last year’s Tangerine Tango, which was preceded by Honeysuckle, Turquoise, and Mimosa.

“As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate,” said Pantone Color Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman in a statement announcing the pick. “Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world.” Those eager to embrace the “powerful and universally appealing tone” should keep an eye out for the Color of the Year beauty collection, part of a partnership between Pantone and cosmetics retailer Sephora. Launching in March at Sephora stores in the United States, the limited-edition collection will include eye shadows and nail polish, but it’s probably best to avoid the green lipstick, no matter how lush.
