The striking zesty green shade unveiled as this year's shade by colour experts Pantone perfectly aligns with the New Year spirit of reflection, reinvention and regeneration. Inspired by the natural world, 2017's colour is said to remind us of our connection with nature and promote a happier, reinvigorated outlook, that should “provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment” according to Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute.

But how do you sneak this less than subtle shade into your wardrobe? The consensus amongst the movers-and-shakers of the fashion industry is to stick to limited pieces, or soften the shade if you find it too daring, and if in doubt, skip the clothes and let Greenery into your beauty bag or living room.

To stop you running for the hills, we’ve picked our top ways to indulge in Greenery without going full-on Kermit the frog.
