Color of the Year 2014: Radiant Orchid

RadientOrchid

As 2013 comes to a close, Pantone has announced the 2014 Color of the Year. It is Radiant Orchid, which the official press release has described as a “enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones.” This is biggish news in the news of style, as this color can be seen on the runways and the red carpet, which has a trickle down effect into retail stores. Past Colors of the Year have included Emerald (2013), Mimosa (2009), and Chili Pepper (2007). I won’t be rocking this year’s color, as I am not a huge fan of wearing pink or purple, but I can definitely appreciate how pretty of a color it is (especially in such a pretty scarf up there).

Check out some examples I pulled from Target’s website:

  1. Xhilaration Fit & Flare Dress
  2. Merona Ellie Genuine Leather Cap Toe Flat
  3. Mossimo Supply Co. Sweater
  4. Merona Crossbody Handbag
  5. Mossimo Supply Co. Marled Infinity Loop Scarf

Check out the official press release here on Pantone.com. Let me know in the comments if you plan on adding some Radiant Orchid to your life in 2014!
