Greenery is the #1 color for 2017. Why Pantone chose it as the top color for the year, I am not sure. It is not a color that many people will be able to wear; unless you’re this guy:
It is a beautiful color. Yet, I know I won’t be able to wear much of it due to my skin coloring. However, there are work arounds on how to wear the Pantone Color of 2017:
Drink an Appletini anytime you are out. Tell everyone your drink of choice is inspired by the Pantone Color of 2017. Get fashion points as a result of your knowledge.
When in doubt, make it your pedicure color:
If you are a bit more adventurous, you can actually wear the color. (Go you!) Start small with an Apple (Green Apple) watch band:
Select it as your handbag color. It’s my favorite way to incorporate the color. This is a nice handbag to get you through spring, summer and fall 2017. A bit more commitment, but a pretty way to do it.
Another accessory idea is a piece of jewelry. Peridot would be the color to search for if you want a precious stone. Otherwise, this is a fun alternative from Nordstrom:
Or this hair accessory. If worn on the back of your head, it won’t clash with skintones.
If you can wear it, I love a pair of shoes or a coat in the color. More commitment to the color, but love the pop potential. Can’t find a coat? Get a pair sneakers. Using this outfit for an inspiration, swap the silver heels for the flat, comfortable green foot hue. Perfection!
