The much awaited Pantone Color of the Year 2017 has been declared, and it is … GREENERY.
Young, fresh, vibrant, alive …. and all that goes with the theme. Those interpretations are going to dominate design discussions for the next few months. The fashion world will eagerly await the seasonal colors, with suggestions on the color combinations to be used.
Greenery poses more challenges than the ones we have worked with, in the last two years – the muted Rose Quartz, Infinity Blue and the deep Marsala.
- It may not go well with all Indian skin tones.
- It may not flatter the fuller figures.
- Its place in the makeup palette is limited to eye shadow (and only if your eyes are hazel or green).
- It will be seen more on nail colors and accessories, than on garments.
A few striking pictures in interior design to see how the color picks up, when combined with other hues. The palettes are equally applicable to outfits.
The effect of the color is enhanced when combined with grey, yellow, blue, black, peach or beige. And of course, red or crimson for the bold and bright.
Combine it with another shade of green, like a richer emerald tone for the ombre effects.
Combine it with peach or beige.
Strike a bold note with red or magenta, but only one color can be dominant, and the other only an accent. Else, it can have be overpowering.
Use green accessories with black and brown outfits.
Flaunt it on the nails with a copper or yellow outfit.
Eyes for the evening. Stay away from this color for daywear.
Green wedges can be a statement piece with any solid color outfit. Do not repeat the color anywhere else, other than nails.
Use it more on tops and shirts, than bottoms. Compare the effects and decide.
A green dress accessorized with brown, white or black can look elegant.
Hair, for the Bold and Beautiful.
Opposites can meet, and so can we bring out the best in less than complementary colors.
Cheers to the fashion enthusiasts ….
