Shoesday Tuesday – Pantone Powers That Be

In fashion land – trends are predetermined by the chosen ones and we all jump on the boat. Some designers even pay forecasting companies to give them their inspirational mood boards.

Included in those forecasts is always: Color. And the color bible is the almighty Pantone book. Each year Pantone chooses a color of the year – last year’s being Tangerine Tango. (That insane name has haunted me for the past 365 days.)

With 2013 comes a new Pantone of the year and the lucky winner is Emerald. However, we can’t all go around only wearing green – so we’ve been blessed with other options that are sure to be in all the stores very soon.

Let’s take a look at the 2013’s approved colors – and the shoe options that follow suit.
