10 Cold Weather Essentials Inspired by Pantone’s Color of the Year

ICYMI: Greenery, “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade,” has just been announced as Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year. Yes, you heard right, Kermit green is officially on our radar in a major way (we have a feeling Miss Piggy will be none too pleased). If you ask us, the timing couldn’t be more perfect. Before a case of the winter doldrums has a chance to set in, don’t hesitate to reach for this restorative hue that’s meant to evoke the onset of spring, fresh beginnings and the great outdoors. Described as a “trans-seasonal shade,” Greenery can be worn on its own or juxtaposed with a slew of neutrals, fluorescents and deep shades for no shortage of sartorial possibilities this season. Ahead, we’ve compiled 10 double-tap-worthy, Greenery-inspired style picks that are more than deserving of a spot in your colorful capsule wardrobe.
