Trend Watch: Avocado Green

Written by: Raegan Cleary

avocadoPantone recently announced that Greenery is the 2017 color of the year. This took many people by surprise since previous years have brought us colors like blush pink and baby blue. However I believe an avocado-y green is the color we need this year. It’s an understated color that I feel is universally flattering. There is so much variation in this trend, from rich, deep greens, to greens with a more golden hue; everyone is bound to find a shade they like!

If you’re hesitant to try a shade of green, start small with accessories. Try substituting a black shoe or bag with a dark green instead! The slight difference is color is refreshing but not overwhelming. If you’re feeling a little more daring, try a statement piece like a cozy sweater or jacket. Avocado is definitely going to take off in 2017. It already appears that this shade is being worn more like a neutral instead of a color so feel free to style it to your liking!

What’s your opinion on green being a trendy color? Are you a fan? How do you style it? Let us know in the comments below!
