Pantone’s color of 2017 is Greenery, and there is still plenty of time to jump on the trend.
We think green is the perfect color for summer. It’s bright, energizing, and happy. Green adds some sizzle to your summer style, and we think it looks pretty darn good on book covers, too.
What better way to be on-trend this summer than to grab a juicy novel with a green cover and match it with clothing and accessories in the perfect shade of green?
We’ve paired up a few must-reads with some of summer’s greenest and greatest finds in this list inspired by the Pantone color of the year:
