6 Ways to Add Radiant Orchid Pieces to your Wardrobe
January 8, 2014
Forget about Emerald Green, this year it's all about Radiant Orchid. The Pantone Color Institute named it the 2014 Color of the Year. They're basically known as the authority when it comes to color. What exactly is radiant orchid you might ask? It's basically a mix of purple, fuchsia with pinkish undertones. And if you think you can't pull it off, you might want to think again. It's actually a very flattering color on almost all skin tones. It's a little bolder than lavender (which can sometimes make you look pasty).
Whether it's in clothes or accessories there are many ways you can wear the trend this year.
I've rounded up a few of my favorite pieces in Radiant Orchid you might want to try. What do you think of this color? Are you excited to try it out?
Tip: If you think purple might wash you out, try holding it up to your face and see what it does to your complexion. If it make you look washed out, then consider wearing this color on pieces that aren't near your face. So for example, instead of looking for a blouse or necklace in this color, opt for a pair of shoes or pants instead.
