When the colour of the year was declared as a lush shade of green by the Pantone Institute, the reactions it elicited were rather positive. The thought behind picking the refreshing shade was its invigorating touch and how it breathes life into the modern day. While we’ve begun adding the hue into our beauty regimen, we’re using the start of the year as the perfect opportunity to treat our closet as a greener pasture. Here’s how you can incorporate Pantone Greenery into your clothing choices now.

Being a bold colour by nature, one of the most foolproof ways to wear Greenery is by layering it into a look. To do so, a blazer, poncho or cape in the bright shade makes a great choice when you’re looking to add pizazz to your work outfit.

What better way to welcome the year than by being swathed completely in the vibrant shade! Greenery is an ideal tone to wear in a delightful dress with a pair of boots for the right amount of grunge.

To slice through an outfit of neutrals using a cut of colour, bottom-wear in the shade of Greenery is just what you need. As you keep the rest of your look in muted tones, a vivid pair of trousers, culottes or shorts can uplift it in an instant.

The simplest way to wear your greens is with a foliage toned accessory. Especially for the faint at heart, just the addition of a green handbag, scarf or pair of shoes can lend another shade to your outfit palette without going beyond your comfort zone.
