The official color of the year (according to Pantone) is Greenery!
Every year the Pantone paint company comes up with a color of the year based on where current thrends and moods around the world are heading. Since they are a paint company the color is meant to show where interior decorating trends are heading, but it almost always lends itself to fashion and design as well.
I am pretty excited about the direction of the color this year. For being slightly on the neon side, it has a cool and calming effect, that can be paired with neutral, jewel tone, and neon pallets. The happy and relaxing qualities of this color are exactly what I think a lot of people need right now given our current social and political climate. It creates a breath of fresh air just like the leaves it emulates!
Last years color(s) weren't my favorite. While I loved how Rose Quartz and Serenity embodied the growing acceptance of gender fluidity in our society, the colors themselves were pretty outdated. They reminded me of a living room set one of my friend's parents had growing up in the 90's. Not to mention it was sort of a cop out to not choose just ONE color.
Though a bold choice I can see myself wearing Greenery. You could use it as an accessory or statement piece to punch up an outfit.
Or wear it head to toe!
I challenge you to get out into nature and find it naturally as well!
