Last year, Pantone announced “ultra-violet” as the official 2018 Color of the Year. As you trace the history of this color, you will find out that this bright and bold color is used through the years as a symbol of position in either politics or religion. According to Pantone, ultra-violet can be described as complex and contemplative. It suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now.
For the first few months of this year, we can see designers incorporate this color and shades similar to it in their house designs and also in catwalks. However, this eye-catching blue-toned purple can be as intimidating as its meaning especially when worn in everyday style. So we’ve come up with three outfit inspirations that can help you make ultra-violet work for your wardrobe. Scroll down, and see how you can this hue!
OFF TO WORK
Kick-off the trend by putting some hints of violet into your outfits. Wearing accessories such as shoes, bags, or jewelries is an awesome way to do it. Let this beautiful color work for your corporate outfit by wearing something in this hue. For example, you can wear your classic neutral-colored office wear, then wear a pair of shoes or just use a handbag in a violet shade. A pair of violet tassel earrings is also a good addition. But remember not to overdo it. Never ever wear these accessories in violet all at once. Try incorporating piece one at a time.
Not ready for ultra-violet trainers or pants yet? You really don’t have to. Casual tees and tops in this color are definitely an awesome choice for your street style. Aside from the color is flattering and a standout, it’s also versatile that you can wear a violet blouse with any color of denim and also with black leggings or pants.
PARTY ALL NIGHT
We couldn’t think of the best time to wear this astounding color than to wear it at night. This color is just so enigmatic making it a great choice for your evening dresses. Try on those sparkly dresses for night parties and you will surely be a standout. Lacy dresses in violet shades, on the other hand, are great for date nights.
There you have it, beautiful ladies. Try one of these and conquer the year 2018 with confidence and grace.
