Emerald Green

The desert’s coolest shade

Color authority Pantone Inc. announced its pick of the year for 2013: emerald green. The opulent hue stands-out against the earthy desert landscape and sparks conversation at spring events like La Quinta Arts Festival and Fashion Week El Paseo. Snag these styles for a fashion-forward 2013:

Trina Turk Boutique’s Triston Trouser from the Mr. Turk collection dares him to show off his flashy side. Wear these pants with a neutral cashmere sweater and a pair of aviator shades for a breezy, effortless spring ensemble. For her, accessorize a simple sheath with Turk’s resin emerald bangle. The glossy green band is a dynamic statement piece.
891 N. Palm Canyon Dr., Palm Springs.

Slip into J Brand Jeans’ ROZ 8711 Moto denim at Saks Fifth Avenue. Pair this biker-inspired denim with a funky blouse or sequined shell for an alternative to khakis and a button-up.
73555 El Paseo, Palm Desert.

Flirt with emerald green at Teez Me in Palm Springs. The casual-wear boutique houses an assortment of fun tops that allow you to try the color without committing to it. Pair your tee with lemon-yellow skinny jeans or a blue cardigan for a preppy finish.
216 N. Palm Canyon Dr., Palm Springs.
