Greenery has been announced as the Colour of the Year 2017, which is a great excuse to freshen up our wardrobes.

2016 has been quite the year, and many people are looking for a fresh start. That’s probably why Pantone selected Greenery as the Colour of the Year for 2017. Every year, this company sets the tone for the year to come and heralds a wave of fashion and design inspired by the shade.

In 2016 Pantone named two colours as the colour of the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity. And we all saw how popular pinks and rose gold became this year.

As Christmas comes around, green is a welcome colour to come into style. The greenery shade than Pantone chose is yellow-green to symbolise new beginnings. Come springtime this colour will be all over the stores. For now, we can mix up our greens with emeralds and forest greens.

The khaki trend may be on the way out for 2017 if greenery flourishes into style. It’s a trans-seasonal shade that will last throughout the year – making it evergreen in a way. It won’t just be clothing either, expect home decor and interiors to take on the invigorating colour. Brightening up the home with plants will bring the hue to your home.

Here are our picks of the greatest green pieces to wear this season.
