Pantone Color of the Year 2014: Radiant Orchid

Pantone has announced its 2014 Color of the Year and it is…. Radiant Orchid! What exactly is Radiant Orchid, you may ask? It’s not quite pink, but not quite purple — the perfect combination of rose & eggplant. In the words of Pantone: “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”

Radiant Orchid has been all over the runway during spring 2014 fashion week, and has already started making its way onto the red carpet. Whether you want to try out this color fad in your wardrobe, beauty products, or your apartment, you’ll be in style. Radiant Orchid doesn’t belong to just one season, so feel free to rock it all year long.

Ready to test out this happy hue? Check out my Radiant Orchid picks below! If you just want to dip a toe into this color trend, opt for the jewelry, scarf, nail lacquer, or flats. However, if you’re ready to take on this purple full-force, try the lipstick, clutch, eyeliner, or adorable elbow patch sweater.
