With 2013 just begun, we have a solid 365 (well, technically 362) days to test-drive any and all new, emerging trends to our heart's content. And the Pantone Color Of The Year, emerald green, is no exception. While the hue calls to mind cheery clovers and traditional tartan prints, arguably, it can be a crapshoot.
