Trend Watch: Pantone Greenery

Greenery is the Pantone Colour of the Year 2017. 


What is the PANTONE Color of the Year?

‘A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.’

– Pantone Colour Institute

The PCI describe Greenery as a colour symbolic of new beginnings, representing the newness that Springtime brings. Emblematic of revival, restoration and renewal it captures the imagination leaving us all visualising lush green fields and flourishing trees. A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.

The reason for Greenery being dubbed the Colour of the Year for 2017? Greenery is representative of nature, something which many of us have become far removed from due to the hectic nature of modern life. How often do any of have to time to literally take a minute and admire the beauty of the world around us?


Greenery is described as a trans-seasonal shade, enabling you to wear it now in the midst of summer sunshine, or in the Autumnal winds of October, or in the dewy light of February. Greenery is one of the most versatile shades in anyone’s wardrobe – it can be paired with neutral creams and camels, bright vivacious shades of pink or blue, rich deep reds and purples, pastel and metallic tones.

Luckily for all you , in today’s post I have created a selection of some of the best Greenery inspired pieces available right now to help you keep on top of your style game.
