Greenery closet inventory, Pantone 2017 color of the year

I’ve highlighted Pantone colors of the year before (rose quartz and serenity in 2016marsala in 2015, and emerald in 2013); Pantone chooses a color every year as a “A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.”

For 2017, Pantone chose the color Greenery, “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade.”

Greenery, Pantone Color of the Year 2017

Here’s the reasoning behind Pantone’s 2017 choice:

Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.

Once again, I’m not a particular fan of Pantone’s choice. I don’t have that much green in my closet, even though peridot, a yellow-green very similar to the “Greenery” color Pantone chose, is my birthstone. What green I do have is either mint or a darker forest green, or it’s mixed in a print with other colors.

However, as I did last year, I went through my closet to see what I already had close to the Pantone 2017 Color of the Year. It’s often not necessary to buy all-new items to stay on trend; first, take stock of what you’ve got already and remix those items! Remixing = real life. Also, nail polish is a fun — and cheap! — way to incorporate color trends into your outfits. 🙂

    I’m torn on this color. I love green, but don’t wear it a lot. I have a green purse that is close to that shade, and now that I think of it, I do have a dress that shade of green. I like to wear it with a cobalt(ish) blue cardigan. I haven’t worn either in a couple of years though, might be time to break them out!
