New Jersey based Pantone Color Institute has announced that Greenery is the Color of the Year for 2017. The Institute describes Greenery as “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.”

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute explained that the color is reassuring.

“Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose,” she said.

With such an inspiring message, you’ll definitely want to add some Greenery to your wardrobe. These products are perfect for adding some color to your outfit without looking like you’re pulling fashion inspiration from Shrek.

It’s good to have a “green thumb” but what about a green lip? NYX Macaron Lippies come in a variety of bright colors, including two shades of green. The $6 Key Lime is closest to Pantone’s Greenery.

Kate Spade Mini Stud Earrings are practically a jewelry box staple! The $32 Peridot pair is perfect for a pop of green.


The Stella McCartney ‘Ring’ iPhone case is absolutely amazing. It’s literally four rings and a phone case all in one, which totally gives you the justification for spending $145 on a phone case. It’s a set of designer rings that will prevent you from dropping your phone. That’s basically priceless.
