Color crush: kale

Pantone Color: Kale 2

Spring is almost in the air with Pantone’s new colors. From earthy tones to bolder shades, Pantone’s Spring 2017 swatches can be worn as neutrals or a statement color all year round. Even though we’re already thinking/wishing ahead. We’re loving the earthy swatch Kale, superfood and super color.This hue easily transitions from winter to spring. Think swapping dark denim and booties for white jeans and gladiators. If you’re in need of a late-winter wardrobe refresh, be sure to add this inspired-by-nature hue. Matcha green tea run? Throw on this faux leather jacket over a v-neck tee. So simple, yet so on trend.  Go from the 9-5 grind to happy hour cocktails in this green ruffle-trim blouse, half tucked into your favorite skinny jeans with heels. This GAP piece is two trends in one: a midi silhouette + a kale-inspired hue. Consider this flowy skirt a go-to for weekend gatherings that’ll easily transition to spring. The lightweight and sweat-wicking fabric on these high-waisted crop leggings is breathable enough for that Saturday spin class and running errands around town after! Wrap on a printed scarf, the perfect accessory to help seamlessly transition your wardrobe from chunky knits to light layers. Plus, the tassel details are adorable. Add a pop of (nature-inspired) color with Banana Republic’s leather tote. This carry-all does double duty: work and weekend bag.
