Drumroll, please. Pantone’s color of the year is… Radiant Orchid! Get ready for next year with these lovely lavender beauty and fashion picks.
We’ve already rocked tangerine in 2012, decked out in emerald this year, but come next year, our color palette is getting a much softer makeover with Pantone’s Radiant Orchid. According to Pantone, this color is “an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones that inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health.” We couldn’t say it better ourselves. This hue couldn’t be any prettier, right?
We can’t wait to see all the delicious goodies sure to come in this gorgeous shade come next year! But, to get you in the mood (and prepare your closets for 2014), we’ve rounded up five Radiant Orchid-inspired items that will put you straight to the top of the fashion “it” list right now. Go on, get a jump start on the trend!
