Wearing Radiant Orchid

Pantone’s color of the year has already sprung mixed feelings on the color choice. Ironically this hue falls directly opposite last year’s color, Emerald (which was very popular), on the color wheel.

Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone Color Institute’s executive director, describes the color as  “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”

Still, there are many ways to incorporate this trend to your style in tasteful ways. Here are some ideas for those of you who love, kinda sorta like, or dislike the trending color.

If you LOVE:

Commit to a full piece- a blouse, skirt, or dress. A bold color like this looks best with neutral colors or basic prints.

If you’re KINDA SORTA:

Just add a touch of Radiant Orchid using accessorizes. Paint your nails, throw on a scarf, add a necklace or ring. Or, work with colors around that hue- lavender, powder pink, etc.

If you HATE:

Nothing.

If this color is just not rocking your world, don’t do it! Fashion is fun, wear what makes you feel great, comfortable, and true to your personal style, not just because “everyone else is doing it.” 🙂
