As you know, I DO shop mostly at the op shop, buying last year’s clothes and all … but I don’t want to be super uncool in my choices. I like op shop prices (and it’s good for the world to reuse and recycle) but I don’t want to look like I shop at the op shop necessarily (not that I won’t immediately tell you that I bought something second hand if you comment on my clothes or anything in my house – I just can’t help myself).
So, to keep things relevant I present my not so secret weapon …ta da! The Pantone colour chart for the year. 2017 here we go.
‘Greenery’ is the PANTONE COLOUR OF THE YEAR (and thus I predict that the home decorating trend for lots of plants inside is going to continue – go forth and buy that fiddle leaf fig I say).
Anyway, now I am checking out this chart to get the vibe man … you know.
I’ll keep that smokey mid blue colour in mind. I ❤️ blue. And I like mid greens and yellows. A bit of orange (yay I’ve got some great orange pants). And I like the combo of the greens with that lighter blue.
Those pastels aren’t super for me, but they might be good mixed with the stronger colours …
Right, done. That’s it. I’m ready to go forth and rummage my way through 2017 with confidence.
Oh my gosh what a brilliant idea! Plus useful for buying fabric as well as op shopping!
