The reign of Emerald is over and earlier this year, Pantone announced Radiant Orchid as 2014’s color of the year. The Pantone page describes it as a color that “blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative, and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”
Tricky one when it comes to fashion, you’d think. However with fuchsia, purple, and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid has a certain allure that asserts your femininity and can get the wearer the right kind of attention. So don’t think for an instant that this isn’t the color for you; go ahead and try on pieces in varying shades either as a full outfit or as an accent to your ensembles.
