Pantone 2017 Color of the Year: Greenery

Every January, the world’s top color authority Pantone announces its pick for the color of the year.  With their clout, the pick goes beyond mere prediction – it tends to influence what is to come in design.  Fashion in particular takes cues from the Color of the Year, which is why I am so excited about 2017’s pick: Greenery.

Pantone says it is all about fresh starts, and after the crap year that was 2016, I think we can all agree that that sounds good.  I also love that it is something we haven’t seen lately, so it is actually a fresh, statement making addition to your wardrobe.

I’ve rounded up some of the best options in vibrant greenery in plus sizes and accessories available now.  Since this is such a recent departure from the prevailing color trends, the selection is limited, but adding some vibrance during these icy months is a great way to kick off your 2017 wardrobe.
