Pretty much everyone can agree that 2016 has been a very rough year for the world. Between politic strife, bombings and the loss of incredible entertainers, this year has been a doozy. However, the sun will still rise, and Pantone has released a new color for 2017.
Every year, the company takes part in this tradition, which gives us a way to focus upon the trajectory of humanity while also staying stylish. Simply by being anointed the year’s most relevant color, this hue will undoubtedly be included in more fashion lines and paint schemes. This year’s color is Greenery, which is a spunky shade of green with a hint of yellow thrown in. It’s meant to evoke rejuvenation and spring, heralding a new season. With so many people on the planet looking forward to the new year, it certainly seems appropriate.
Pantone has been tracking trends within the past year, and Greenery definitely stands out as a rebellious choice that defines the need for awakening. The color definitely captures a certain kind of passion for nature, as well as the joy of a new year. Since it is such a bold shade, experts are betting that Greenery will show up mostly in workout clothes and swimwear this year. Fashionistas will most likely use the color to accent their more neutral wardrobe choices, so don’t be surprised if you see a lot of handkerchiefs and scarves in this remarkable shade.
