How I Wear Greenery (Pantone Color Of The Year)


Green is probably my second favorite color after orange. I find it a relaxing color and love all shades of green. However, I don't have a lot of green in my closet for some reason. I never seem to run across clothes that are green in the stores. The one exception is what I call olive green. I have several items in various shades of this color. I think it is almost a neutral and goes well with most other colors. 

I was so happy when I learned that the Pantone color of the year is Greenery. This meant I would be seeing more of it on the racks.

Here's a description of Greenery from the Pantone website . . . 

"A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.

Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.

Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront - it is an omnipresent hue around the world.

A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality." (From:

In this outfit I am wearing a cardigan in a shade of greenery that is a few seasons old and gets a lot of use. I am wearing it with a cream camisole, a pair of skinny jeans and a pair of booties that are also a shade of Greenery. I carried a clutch that had the same shades as my camisole. For jewelry I wore one of my oldest and most favorite necklaces. You will see this necklace in more pictures of mine than any other jewelry I own. This was a simple casual everyday outfit that I enjoy often.
