You already knew emerald would be huge news for 2013, but now that two more shades of green have been announced as Pantone's top hues of the season, it's officially the color of the moment.

According to today's WWD, "Leading the pack, deep lichen green (somewhere between army and khaki) topped the women’s list and finished third on the men’s side. While green is not exactly a shocker of a fall color, it turned up in the more unusual hues of emerald and linden green on both lists. Sizing up fall’s prizewinning palette, Pantone Color Institute’s executive director, Leatrice Eiseman said, 'If you ever walked in the forest or the woods in the fall when the leaves have fallen, there is such a gorgeous mélange of color. This palette reflects those wonderful fall colors but at the same time there are colors that bring a certain sturdiness and structure.'"

Rounding out the women's list are Açai (a deep purple), Mykonos Blue (a shade reminiscent of the sea near the Greek island), Turbulence (a deep slate gray), Samba (a fiery red), Carafe (a brown that falls somewhere between coffee and chocolate), Koi (a bold orange the same color as the fish), and Vivacious (think GLAMOUR pink!).
