Every year and new season Pantone informs us of the colors that are going to be seen the most in fashion and beauty! This year the big color is Ultra Violet! This color is a bold and bright purple that is appealing on so many skin types and body types. It is a great color for all seasons this year, and will be a wonderful addition to your wardrobe!
Pantone’s official definition of the color describes it as “complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.”
If you are wondering how to incorporate the fun purple into your daily looks and wardrobe, here are some suggestions that will steer you in the right direction!
If you aren’t ready to fully commit to a blouse or pants in Ultra Violet, start small. Necklaces, earrings, and bracelets are simple ways to incorporate the pop of color into your wardrobe. Also, hand bags and shoes add a nice and subtle touch that doesn’t go overboard with the color!
One Pieced at a Time
If you are a little more adventurous with your style, and you want to be bold and incorporate Ultra Violet into your look as soon as possible, try finding a piece of clothing, such as a blouse, sweater, or pants, and wear them with neutral clothing. You’re sure to stand out while not going too overboard with the purple!
If you know that you are ready to rock a head to toe look using Ultra Violet, try finding a coat, dress, or jumpsuit! You can easily style these with other accessories to dress up your look and make you the center of attention!
