- Pantone's Colour of the Year 2017 -

Like every year, Pantone selected a 'colour of the year' for 2017. There are two major differences compared to last year's choice. First, they relied on their usual 'one colour' per year selection. Secondly, in contrast to last years soft pastel hues Serenity and Rose Quartz, a rather bold colour made the race.

This colour is Greenery.

According to Pantone's Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman, 'Greenery symbolizes new beginnings and the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and on a larger purpose.'

To be honest, I still have to get used to this colour. Last year's choice was much more appealing to me at first sight than this yellow-green shade. 


To get into the groove of Greenery my immediate impulse was, to put together a few looks for you, incorporating Greenery. Unfortunately, so shortly after the announcement, the number of garments rocking this hue are limited. Therefore, I couldn't create the looks I imagined. For now, I just gathered the items I could find in this yellow-green hue.

Striped Sweater      Leather Clutch      Dress      Nail Polish      Sweater      Bikini Top      Bikini Briefs 

It is just a matter of time before fashion, beauty, and the other creative industries pick up this hue for their collections. Then, of course, I can come back to my original plan and create looks incorporating Greenery.


Do you like Pantone's choice?


See you soon.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.

    I'm really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.
