As we head into the end of our fall season and enter winter, it looks like the color trends have been edging toward my favorite hues of all. JEWEL COLORS! Any chance I get to look like a precious stone- you can count me in!

And it’s looking like celebrities are having these same urges! In the past month, we have caught actresses and actors like Emma Stone, Blake Lively, and even Robert Pattinson sporting the ever flattering emerald green. The professionals over at Pantone Color Institute have even called Emerald Green the color of the year for 2013! They say the color “enhances our sense of well-being further by inspiring insight, as well as promoting balance and harmony.” Well, that’s exciting!


This color has even made a bold statement in the swim world. Seafolly’s Kiara Envy bandeau bikini, shown below, is one of our best-selling swimsuits of 2013. And how could it not be? The nature-inspired tone looks flawless on every skin tone … all with one gorgeous green.

While emerald green is the color of the year, there are still some other jewel tones that always seem to make an appearance. Singers and models like Rihanna, the Beibs’ gorgeous little gal pal Selena Gomez in Glamour Magazine, and Alessandra Ambrosio have gone toward the more passionate color, deep ruby red. This rich, fiery color never seems to go out of style!

The infamous red bikini is found in almost all of the new swimwear collections, but honestly, no one has done this tone quite like Mar De Rosas. Their new Red Sea Stones triangle bikini brings together all of the dark elements with that blood red tone that a ruby should possess. It is just… fantastic!

And for the subtle, but stylish, there is sapphire blue. This flawless color has recently been seen on celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Liv Tyler, and Lana Del Rey. It is a timeless color that can be seen in different collections throughout the years.

For 2013, Malai did this hue best, with the recreation of last year’s big hit- The Dark Orchid bandeau bikini. With subtle hints of translucent cut outs, this high-waisted bikini is just what the doctor ordered!

So what about you? Are you looking forward to flaunting your stuff in these vibrant and bold colors? Well, if so, Orchid Boutique is just the place to start.
