Pantone, a system of accurate color measurement, has listed it's 2013 summer palette and I am going to share it here, with you, in case you're not sure if that nectarine purse that you bought will be able to survive the once-over by your fashionista sister!
|2013 Summer Color Trends for Fashion and Jewelry|
As you can see some wonderful colors are in store for us this summer! They are not, however, for the feint of heart.

Lemon Zest: lemon yellows and golds are surprisingly easy to add to a summer palette if you're someone that likes to wear gold. Instead of wearing gold try silver jewelry (which will highlight your sun-kissed skin) with gold or yellow enamel accents. The try one or two other touches of yellow (a skinny belt, purse or scarf etc.) and you'll be ready for 2013's summer!
Gold also can be used for makeup accentuation as well. Try a little gold shimmer powder on your eyelids or a tiny bit on your cheeks and nose to bring a natural spring glow to your face.

A coctail ring, pair of neon lime earrings or another small accessory item will pair well with many other colors, from robin's egg blue to purple or even orange, when used sparingly.
|grayed jade pantone color, labradorite stacking ring|
This labradorite ring is a prime example of how, albeit subtle, grayed jade can still be interesting and not dull!
Rainbow moonstones or Larvakite (Norwegian Moonstone) have similar properties to the Labradorite, should you like those colors and some "flash" on your gems!

|Emerald pantone color for summer 2013 fashions|
Using linen and a smattering of emerald you could cause quite a stir at your next family BBQ, or when out on the town!
The richness of emerald makes everything more opulent, like this "mood" necklace of sterling silver with emerald colored enamel and intricate Celtic knot work.
That's all for this installation, we will discuss the rest of the summer pantone palette for 2013 in our next installation. Thank you for reading!
