Every winter, I get so excited for Pantone to announce their Color of the Year! I think it’s such a fun way to become inspired and try a color that may normally be out of your comfort zone. Other times, you may be pleasantly surprised and see your signature color is having its time to shine.
2018 is taking me to a color that I love, but don’t often wear or have experience with. Ultra Violet is the most gorgeous shade of purple that is sure to make a statement as you enter a room. Purple has long been associated with royalty, so Ultra Violet is meant to be an uplifting hue that ‘communicates your originality’ and could potentially be a tribute to the late, great Prince.
Whatever the rationale, I’m pretty dang excited ! I always love purples, but it’s a color that doesn’t really loves me back. I personally think its one of the few colors that washes out my olive skin tone, but I’m always willing to give something a second chance! That’s doubly true when it comes to colors and my wardrobe.
This fun party dress from J. Crew is the exact shade that Pantone is calling the Color of the Year. I scooped it up during their fantastic Black Friday sales and now I’m thinking it was such a happy coincidence. I have to say, I’m pretty glad I gave this hue another shot. It’s such a good change from the seasons red and green color scheme.
Now, just because I love my readers so much, I’ve gathered my favorite purple picks to help you ease your way into this new and bold color. Pick a piece that speaks to you and add something fun to your wardrobe. Happy shopping!
