“Puwple” was my favorite color growing up, so you can understand the nostalgia when the Pantone of the Year was revealed as Ultra Violet. This color has been described as “dramatic and provocative“, but for me “puwple” has always been a color of luxury and originality. This shade is bold, bright and has been popping up every where from nail polish to earrings to sneakers. Clearly I’m embracing this moment… but how to wear ultra violet?!
While Ultra Violet may be an overwhelming color to wear for some, I have found that incorporating shades of purple or adding pops of the punchy Pantone are much more approachable. I paired this super soft, deep berry henley with shades of grey to create an every day look.
