The Pantone Colour Institute has just unveiled its new Colour of the Year — a hue meant to reflect the global cultural mood and attitude of the moment. The year 2017 will be the year of Greenery (Pantone 15-0343, if we’re to be specific), otherwise known as a “yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring”. In some ways a response to the turbulent mood of 2016, the verdant tone expresses reassurance, hope, and reconnecting with the beauty of Mother Nature.
January is the perfect time for such new beginnings, through brightening up our wardrobes with a pop of colour in the midst of a drab winter. Indeed, shades of green were spotted all over the Spring/Summer 2017 runways, proving the fashion world’s knack for being ahead of the curve. Whether you embrace or eschew bright colours in your closet, there are endless ways to wear Greenery. Click through for some of our top picks for a bright and lively 2017.
