Kale is the Color of the Season!


Hi fashion lovers!  

We all know that Pantone is the almighty adviser of all things color when it comes to fashion, and they have spoken!  I am in love with Pantone's color choice for 2017, Green will be everywhere and I couldn't be happier!  

Think Kale, and you'll be set!  Isn't it funny how the foods of the moment often go along with the colors of the moment!? This year's Pantone color of the year is called Greenery.  I like to picture a leafy green, and it's subtle shade differences so that I'm not pigeonholed into one exact shade!  Find the Green that works for you!     

Pantone explained it as "a refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings." I think 2017, more than ever, needs this burst of positivity in every way possible, so why not in your wardrobe as well!?


I love greenery being paired with beautiful dusty colors for an ethereal calming palate.  It can easily be paired with brighter colors as spring and summer approach as well!  Try it paired with a rose quartz (2016's Pantone color of the year!) or a cloudy cream in the later days of winter.  Mix it up with some patterns in earth tones or jewel tones depending on your vibe!

We spent the day styling the always stunning Emily (one of the awesome managers of LBD) with different fun looks, head-to-toe LBD!  Get green-inspired and go grab your favorite pieces to make sure you're up on the 2017 Color of the Year!





I can't get enough of this super flattering take on the crop trend that is everywhere!  This top comes in both black and white and can be worn SO many ways!  It looks amazing paired with a high waisted skirt showing a sliver of skin, but if that's too intense for you, it also looks fab over a printed dress to give it a completely different look!  It's also the perfect backdrop to show off a statement necklace!
