With 2017 just around the corner, it’s time to say goodbye to Rose Quartz and Serenity and embrace Pantone’s new colour of the year: Greenery. The bright springy hue may seem an unexpected choice, but according to Pantone, it is meant to represent “a colour snapshot” of the current global culture and mood. Translation: There’s a greater message behind the pick.
“Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolises the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose,” notes Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute in a statement.
When it comes to fashion, at first glance, bright green may seem like a tricky choice. But armed with the right pieces, it’s a colour that will no doubt help you stand out from the crowd. So embrace the coming year in an invigorated way, with a little extra greenery in your life (and wardrobe).
