2016 has had its fair share of ups and downs, but the latest announcement from Pantone reminds us all to keep growing and pushing forward in 2017. These Twitter reactions to Pantone’s Color Of The Year prove the selection was a smart choice.
Many are seeing the bright green “Greenery” as a symbol for regrowth, and it seems to be inspiring to many folks online. Although, some admit they wouldn’t actually implement this hue into their wardrobe, that doesn’t mean that the color isn’t perfect to add into your everyday life in other ways. Pantone describes “Greenery” as a “refreshing and revitalizing shade” and perhaps, this is coming at a time when we need it the most.
There haven’t been major signs of this hue gaining popularity in the fashion and beauty realm (at least enough to be dubbed the Color Of The Year). I mean, many people would have probably voted on dusty rose if they had to guess what 2017’s choice would be. But, this is supposed to represent “a snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude,” according to the Pantone website, and I'd say it really does that well. It’s almost time to set those New Year’s resolutions and look forward to what the year has in store. And with a shade like “Greenery” to represent 2017, well, that’s certainly not a bad start.
