Last week PANTONE® released the color of the year for 2014, and it has taken a dramatic turn from 2013’s emerald green. It’s a light purple/lilac color called Radiant Orchid. This color while very feminine packs a punch with its crisp clean femininity. Although it can be seen more as a springtime color, I think it will show itself as an all year round color as we begin 2014.
As you will see as spring clothing emerges from the fashion houses we’ll see a lot of pastel colors with a little more subtlety in the pops of color seem to be toning down the powerful punch of colors in the years past. With radiant orchid as the shining centerpiece to our spring time wheel of colors.
You can work that radiant orchid into your wardrobe in so many ways. If you want to go subtle do it with your shoes or bag. Want to go bold then definitely go with a pair of pants.
What do you think of the new color for 2014? Will you be wearing radiant orchid?
