It’s 2017, so we have a new colour of the year from Pantone.  The colour they have chosen is Greenery – officially called 15-0343 TCX Greenery.

The colour is described as a

“fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.”

Laurie Pressman, vice president with Pantone Color Institute says:

“It’s the green that signals vitality, energy and warmth from the sun.  The yellow-green colour was largely picked because it represents rebirth and regeneration”.

I think it is a perfect colour to take our minds out of these grey days and look forward to a colourful new year.
The Pantone forecast of colour not only influences fashion but also furniture, cars, home décor and kitchen goods etc , so be sure to know, even if you choose not to dress in this cheerful green, you will come across it in another area of your life at some stage this year.

Don’t forget you don’t have to dress head to toe in green, just a small nod like a handbag, shoes, scarf, necklace will be all you need to bring your outfit up to date and into 2017. Have a look here on my Pintrest boar
