WHO: Lovers of the outdoors, those with a green thumb, individuals patiently waiting for Spring to come around, matcha enthusiasts and recent fashion collections from Kenzo, Michael Kors, Zac Posen and Cynthia Rowley.

WHAT: Pantone 15-0343 Greenery has been named the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year. This zesty yellow-green is the perfect reminder to take a breather and reinvigorate ourselves. This hue is ideal for infusing any look with a little more life.

WEAR: (Top to Bottom) According to the Pantone Color Institute, Greenery is nature’s neutral. While neutral in nature, this color is the perfect pop for accessories or bold accent in a pattern, and Lafont’s Genie frame is a good example. The lively green hue of these frames are the ideal complement to the minimalistic design of these classically shaped rounds. McGee Group takes a different approach when implementing Greenery into its Jilian frame from Badgley Mischka. This semi-rimless silhouette features pops of Greenery throughout its temples that can be seen in both crystal detailing and green and black color blend. Kenmark’s Original Penguin The Marvin frame features Greenery on its front, inner temple and outer temple tip breaking up the color to create a highly wearable frame that still exudes a level of boldness and vitality.

“The tangy yellow-green speaks to our desire to express, explore, experiment and reinvent, imparting a sense of buoyancy,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Through its reassuring yet assertive vibrancy, Greenery offers us self-assurance and boldness to live life on our own terms, during a time when we are redefining what makes us successful and happy.”
