The future is purple! Pantone Color of the Year 2018 is Ultra Violet. Each year Pantone color of the year sets the hues for upcoming trends. For 2018 the bold and beautiful ultra-violet is something to look forward to. Pantone describes it as ‘a dramatically thoughtful shade’ and we cannot agree more.
It is time to put your inhibitions aside and enjoy this royal and majestic color. From clothes to purple home décor, accessories to makeup there are so many ways to experiment with this stunning color.
Read on to find 5 easy ways to sizzle in ultra violet.
1. Purple winter wear
For most of us winter is about gloomy grays and boring blacks! Add a pop of color to your winter wear with a bright purple piece. You could color block with the family of magenta and fuchsia, or wear it standalone.
Pair you basic denims with a purple overcoat or a violet oversized pullover. Complete the look with white sneakers and your look will be on point.
2. Hues of ultra-violet
I understand that jumping straight to purple can be slightly intimidating. We have a perfect solution. Start with violet, lavender, and pastel hues. With summers approaching, pastel lavender and violet is going to be a huge trend.
Tone down the look by pairing purple with basic white or black! Having a single violet element in your outfit – skirt, trousers, or top, will do the trick. So go ahead and enjoy flaunting this beautiful color.
If you’re skeptical in wearing bold purple outfits or a purple lipcolor, then this one is perfect for you. Carry a cutesy purple bag or flaunt purple heels.
Start experimenting with pastel violet, lavender, or a muted purple. It would set the mood and once you become comfortable with the color, you can wear it in any form.
4. Ethnic Wear
The wedding season is on in full swing. If you have a wedding to attend and are wondering what color palette to choose, we recommend purple and hues of ultra violet. For that royal and classy look, purple is the best pick.
You could choose a purple saree, an ultra violet lehgna with contrast dupatta, pastel lavender lehnga or cocktail gown!
Just in case you think that an entire purple saree is not your style, mix n match it with shades of bright pink. It makes a stunning and festive combination for mehndi or even sangeet night.
5. Purple make-up
Make-up gives you the freedom to experiment with color. A bright purple lip color, lavender nails, purple smokey eyes….how do you plan to start including ultra violet and purple in your life?
Since purple is a bold color, we recommend you don’t go overboard. Let one feature, either lipstick or your eye make-up be the highlight. Bold and beautiful, purple lipstick is a great choice for parties and night outs.
