This 2017, Pantone has chosen a delightfully zesty shade that’s an unlikely departure from last year’s calming Rose Quartz and Serenity. The shade Greenery has been described as a “tangy yellow-green” that’s quite similar to the green of foliage.
According to a statement released by Pantone — “Bringing forth a refreshing take, Greenery is a tangy yellow-green that speaks to our need to explore, experiment and reinvent. Illustrative of flourishing foliage, the fertile attributes of Greenery signals one to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.”
If you thought this shade of green is hard to pull off, fret not as it is refreshingly vivid and can be worn or incorporated to your lifestyle easily. Late last year during Spring/Summer 2017 fashion week, major designer labels including Gucci, Michael Kors, Emilio Pucci have peppered this bold green in their lineup. Don’t be surprised to spot this green in homeware and lifestyle additions if you’re planning to overhaul your abode this new year.
If donning a bright green dress might be a tad too daunting for your low-key taste, paint your nails in the shade of Greenery from Butter London, or wear Marni’s contemporary leather necklace with a delicate leaf motif. Alternatively, you can also decorate your home and kitchen with cushions and ceramicware in this shade of green. Here are our picks for our female Shoppers:
