It is that time of year again! Pantone has announced the color of the year, 2017! The color of 2017 is named by Pantone as “Greenery.”

Greenery of course is exactly what it’s name implies; it’s green. This is a natural green hue. It is a medium green which will be easy to wear as a neutral tone in 2017. Greenery also happened to be splashed all over the New York Fashion Week runways for the spring/summer 2017 seasons. You can read more about that here.

Here is a green moment from New York Fashion Week spring/summer 2017.

What do you think of Greenery for 2017? Is this a color you can see yourself wearing throughout the year?

I have to admit, I like Greenery! Green is already one of my favorite colors behind blue and purple. I have a few pieces in my wardrobe which are around this green hue, so I am looking forward to pulling them out to wear in 2017.

In addition to Greenery, look for military green in the spring/summer 2017 family of green hues. If Greenery isn’t your thing, you can look to military green as your way of rocking the green trend in 2017.

Although Greenery did appear on the runway quite often for the spring/summer 2017 season in New York, many designers mixed it into prints, as you can see above from Supima, rather than use it as a solid color. It should be interesting to see, now that Greenery was deemed the Color of the Year 2017, if it appears in a solid state on store shelves for spring, or if designers keep it mixed in patterns.

Stay tuned! I will be attending the shows at New York Fashion Week this upcoming February to see what will be hot for the fall/winter 2017/2018 seasons. Do you think Greenery will be a hot color for fall too? I will let you know!

Thanks for stopping by,

Pantone color of the year 2016

Move over Marsala, there is a new color of the year in town! Introducing the color of the year 2016, or should I say colors of the year 2016???

Pantone has announced there is not one, but two colors designated as the color of the year 2016. The colors are Rose Quartz and Serenity. A fabulous blush-pink, and a soft, almost-sky blue. I have to admit, I am in love!

I have been eyeing a blush handbag for the upcoming spring season; but unsure of what to get! So this is welcome news that Rose Quartz is one of the two colors of 2016. Since this pretty hue has been in style for the past two years, it is possible many of you already own it! I do not, so it looks like I have some shopping to do! Ha, any excuse right?

Blue happens to be my favorite color. I love any shade of blue you throw at me. So Serenity is a welcome color of 2016. I cannot wait to fill my closet with items in this pretty hue. They will be worn for many years to come; you can never own enough blue!

Since spring 2016 has not hit store shelves yet, and we will not see fall 2016 until February 2016, it is a little difficult to find a plethora of clothing and accessories on the market right now in the color of the year 2016. So, I scoured the Internet for something fabulous in these two hues. I found them!

Here are a few fabulous and fashionable pieces of clothing, and accessories, you can wear right now in the color of the year 2016! My first wish list item is a handbag. What is the first item you want in the color of the year 2016? Which color do you like? Rose Quartz or Serenity?

Beauty products in Marsala for 2015

As you already know, the color of 2015 is Marsala. This beautiful hue will be used as a solid, but also as an accent color in many prints. Designers have chosen this color to mix into their festive spring, summer, fall and winter prints for the 2015 fashion year. This means Marsala will be a great color to pick up from a print and bring out through make-up. Love that!

The layering lip collection is calling my name! Which beauty product in Marsala is on your shopping list or wish list for 2015?
