{Glam} Color of the Year

July 13, 2014 in Glam: Style & Trends by Stephanie Campbell


This year’s color of the year? ¬†Radiant Orchid! Pantone shares, “It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple – one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.”

While I am not one to rock a “fuchsia” or a “pink” – there is something about “Radiant Orchid” that feels just right. In the past, Pantone’s Annual Choice spurred a tangerine and an emerald. Two colors that are just asking for trouble. (I can still safely assure you I have neither in my closet. Maybe a hunter green.)

This friendly hue is a lot easier for all women to wear. It compliments all skin tones and is a bit more soft and subtle, but just as colorful as it’s predecessors.

Prepare to see this color pop up in your best friend’s wedding this fall, your co-worker’s new handbag, and even in your own home! Don’t be afraid to give it a go… this pretty purple will transcend each season, so it won’t go out of style anytime soon.
