In case y’all didn’t know, the official Pantone Color of the Year for 2017 is a fun greenish-yellow hue called Greenery. It’s a unique cross between peridot and lime green, and it couldn’t be more perfect for capturing the vibrant energy of spring and summer. Now that we’re on the precipice of the greenest holiday of the year (and you’ll get yourself pinched if you don’t obey St. Patrick’s rules), I figured this would be a prudent time to talk about how to wear Pantone Greenery with 17 of my current greenish-yellow favorites for spring!

Just like lime green, Greenery is an effortlessly bold color that pairs surprisingly well with just about any neutral, specifically black or white. It also looks fun and festive paired with neon colors, like hot pink or yellow, if you’re not afraid of standing out in bright colors. Whether you’re looking for greenery-toned eye makeup, costume jewelry, or clothing, even the smallest pop of color can make a statement, especially on St. Patrick’s Day. And if you’re a Lilly Pulitzer lover, you’re in luck! It’s no secret that Lady Lilly loves lime green, so quite a few of her spring prints fall into the Pantone-approved category.
