El Mix: Pantone’s watercress green for a relaxed summer style

Pantone’s watercress

Written by Sheli Nuñez

Let’s be practical for once, not everyone lives a fashionable life. We don’t all get to enjoy glamorous champagne toasts on a weekly basis. Although, it truly is a shame but that doesn’t mean you can’t be fashionable on your way to the postal office. I’m a believer that no one needs to know where you’re coming from or where you’re going. You just have to look your best for yourself, it’ll help you more than you realize. Here are some outfit combinations you could try to elevate an ordinary day with one of Pantone’s trending shades for the season.

Elevated Casual

An outfit you’ll be able to re use all season long. It’s seductively elevated and combines everyone’s favorite trends. You could embellish the style with some pump heels, although they’ll be barely noticeable but that makes it better in my opinion. You’ll be ready to party (for a reasonable amount of time) among your small circle of friends.

This is that time of the year when we all want to feel relaxed. That doesn’t mean you have to let go of your chic style. You could opt for a polished knitted yet casual dress and pair it with flats or sneakers, your feet will appreciate it. Don’t forget to adorn yourself with gold jewelry to make it chic.


Take it up a notch with some glistening gold. It’s hard to be anything less than highly confident with a top like this. Styling with a structured trouser will provide the look with a sophisticated approach. If you want to make it a bit more informal you could add some white or nude sneakers. I could see Hailey Bieber trying a look like this.
