Do You Own the Colour of 2017?


I f you believe the team at the Pantone Color Institute, which claims to be the ‘global colour authority’, green will be everywhere in 2017. Not just any old green, but the Pantone shade 15-0343, colloquially known as greenery, which is to say a “yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring.”

According to experts at Pantone Colour Institute, “Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.”

It’s a cross between lime and peridot. It is a soothing and happy shade of green and I, for one, am quite happy with this announcement, because it means that we are going to see a lot of this colour in the coming year. It’s not an easy colour to work with on Indian skin tones and you don’t want to look like a walking shrub, but if you want to be ‘with it’ and take your fashion seriously, here are some suggestions on how to include the Color of the year 2017. You just can’t go all out like the Kermit or Rihanna!

The best way to include this is to start small – like, accessories and jewelry and then, if you’re game, you can wear a dress, skirt or a button down. And it goes best with neutral shades like white, nude, tan and brown. Here are some ideas about how to include the Pantone Colour of the Year 2017 and let’s get back to nature!

1. Minimal earrings on gold look super swell!

2. A pendant like this one is worn best with plain white blouses

3. Lemony sunglasses for all those sweltering days to come

4. This green nail paint for your well-manicured tips

5. A bejeweled clutch will surprisingly go perfectly with your LBD

6. This sweater and this dress - together!!

Starting to stock up on loads of skirts, dresses and tops already! So are you a fan of this shade or are you going to sit on it? Do tell us in the comments section below.
