Every year Pantone introduces a new colour. This year it’s Ultra Violet. Representing the cosmos and space it should not make us feel despair or darkness but allow us to think about the infinite possibilities this year may bring.
At least that’s how I feel about this colour.
Happy New Year everyone!
HAPPY NEW YEAR FASHIONISTAS!
I welcome 2017 with colours. specifically the PANTONE Colour of 2017 – Greenery.
Greenery represents nature and revitalization. Something we could all use after 2016. At the Spring 2017 shows, Louis Vuitton captured the essence of Greenery with sharp pantsuits that reminded me of tart green apples.
The Pantone Fashion colour of 2017 is Niagara. Flowing water and deep lakes, Niagara is also a revitalizing colour. Louise Vuitton also hit it with this lovely flowy dress. I want this so bad! This pleated shirt from Celine is a reminder of cascading water. Probably something you can pick up at H&M or Zara at a reasonable price point. Denim can also be an interpretation of Niagara and Altuzarra’s embroidered denim skirt is another item on my Spring “must-haves” list.
I created a cropped, bat wing top out of this beautiful origami paper from Muji.I love how fresh this shade of green looks. It gives the promise of a great year for 2017. Hope you enjoyed this colour report and let me know what your colour is for 2017. Cheers!
The Whole Look
For this final installment of flat lay spring I laid out some outfit choices. These are my favourite apparel colours because all of them work well together. Orange with navy, turquoise or grey is unexpected and I find it softer than red. It also is amazing with my skin tone.
This navy blazer in heavy pique cotton was a steal at $8 from Ann Taylor Factory Store. IT was on the clearance rack with additional mark downs. I love the polka dot lining! The skirt is also Ann Taylor and I bought it New York. The pattern is very graphic and surprisingly it goes with a lot because of the neutral beige background of the print. These turquoise jeans are my favourite for spring. They are Not Your Daughter’s Jeans and fit me perfectly. I have had them for a couple of years and they have slightly faded but also become super soft. The t-shirt is Joe Fresh and the print caught my eye because I just recently started pairing orange and grey.
Putting it all together
Here’s how the 3 installments look together. I’m wearing the taupe comfort sandals from Part 2 with this outfit.
