    Have you ever wondered how ALL the clothing & fabric designers manage to create a season of outfits that seem to go together? How you can buy a dress in one store and find the perfect coat to match it in another? Well, designers follow the Pantone Fashion Color Report from the Pantone Color Institute. Every year in September Pantone establishes the color trends for the Spring Season of the following year. This allows designers all over the world to prepare for the upcoming year and produce clothing lines that are on trend. Now that you know their secret, you can do the same thing!

    In 2017, Pantone's color of the year is Greenery. Symbolic of rebirth and vitality, Pantone describes this shade as "trans-seasonal." Greenery is a color that pairs easily with neutrals, brights and metallics. Greenery even pairs with Pantone's Color of the year for 2016, Rose Quartz, a pale pink that made into everything from sweaters to engagement rings during the past year.

    So now that you know that Greenery is going to become THE color of 2017 how can and how should this influence your Jewelry choices for the year?

    Red Rubies also pair well with Greenery. Red is the complimentary color to green so these colors will always look good together. The modern shade of Greenery takes the red/green combo safely away from Christmas associations creating a look that is reminiscent instead of tulips in springtime.
