The 2017 Pantone Color of the Year, and What Goes With It

The 2017 Pantone Color of the Year, and What Goes With It

You may have heard it already, green is the color of 2017. Pantone's color โ€œGreenery,โ€ to be exact. A grassy green color of new beginnings!

I read a lot about this year's color... It is said to revive, restore, and renew; it is life-affirming. It is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality. No wonder I feel so good in the shade of green I chose!

As far as I'm concerned, it is the color that makes me happy. The green Iโ€™m wearing screams spring. I swear my house plants grow faster when I wear this sweater. ๐ŸŒฟ  ๐ŸŒฑ   My mood is light and resilient. I feel so young and energized in this color, they may card me for a virgin colada. ๐Ÿ˜‰

This shade of green is really pretty. But remember, Gorgeous, green can be a little tricky to pull off. If youโ€™re pale, it may reflect on your skin, making you look a little sickly if youโ€™re not careful. You need to be tanned to pull it off, or you'll need a brighter shade of lipstick to balance the intensity of this green.

But there is a shade of green for everyone to look gorgeous in. From army green to pale, lemony green, pick one and make it yours.

You'll need to find a shade that matches the undertones of your skin, and the color of your hair and eyes, as well. Choose complementary colors with care. I chose gray and burgundy here. They work really well together. Gray doesnโ€™t clash with anything, and these โ€œZinfandelโ€ wine-colored booties are from the same earthy color family. Comment on this post if you want some inspiration for complementary colors to go with the green of your choice.

2017 is as good a year as any to not just wear green, but to be green!

Challenge yourself to get greener this year. Like me! Watch my quest for a recycling bin from the local municipality in the video below.

Also, it's eco-friendly to sell your clothes, if you havenโ€™t tried yet. I like using apps like Poshmark, selling on eBay, or taking my clothes to local secondhand stores. Itโ€™s not beneath you, Gorgeous, to be responsible with Earthโ€™s resources. What doesnโ€™t sell can and should be donated. Goodwills of the world also recycle the fabrics that they cannot sell, and at H&M you can even get 15% off in exchange for your textile donation. Everybody wins. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Be โ€œgreen,โ€ and stay gorgeous this year.

Happy 2017!

Anna

P.S. Btw, I did get the recycling bin I set out to find in the video above. I didn't give up! ๐Ÿ˜‰
