“The best color in the world, is the one that looks good on you!”
— Coco Chanel
Ohhhkay, we know you love your neutrals. They are easy to wear, they go with everything, they don’t require tons of thought. We get it, we really do, and we’re not asking you to give up your beloved greige favorites.
What we are suggesting is that a little color in your wardrobe goes a long way. Still with us? There’s more. Pantone has named the Color of the Year, and it’s GOOD. A blend of pink, red, and purple, the shade best fits into the fuchsia family.
It’s especially good for us women because it’s the perfect shade to brighten skin and it works with all those beloved aforementioned neutrals. Pantone says it signals strength, and they call it both powerful and empowering. We say, BRING IT. Welcome to our collective consciousness, Viva Magenta.
Here’s how to add a little, or a lot.
Wear this over a long, white button-down (untucked) and khaki pants. Pro tip: Size up.
The perfect pink sparkler.
Casual, chic, and color-infused!
Or, just a sweet blouse (with sleeves!) for work or weekends.
A block heel goes with literally everything.
Wake up your weekend jeans.
Clean trousers. Pair these with flats (loafers, ballet flats) and a solid top.
The button-down style you know and love, in the color of the moment. Wear on its own or layer a t-shirt underneath and use the striped beauty as a shacket (shirt/jacket).
Stunners (and splurges) for a night out.
Do you have a casual summer fete to attend? Pair with nude or metallic sandals.
Yes, the color is a wow, but the style is a classic. We’d love this for a work event (stand out)!
For the love of a suit. Look for magenta florals in a classic trouser shape. Lots are on sale now, although sizing is limited.
