A few days ago Pantone announced the 2014 Color of the Year and it’s the oh so lovely Radiant Orchid! This medium shade of a red-purple is going to be a hit for the practical and ultra-feminine fashionistas alike! The key is knowing how to wear it. Follow these steps to learn how to wear radiant orchid in your career attire in the coming seasons.
Since radiant orchid is Pantone Color of the Year, you can surely guess it will be on the runways and in stores everywhere in 2014. However if you look at this color and think it’s too feminine for career attire or it’s just not in the range of colors you normally wear, then think again! Here’s how I plan to add radiant orchid in the career attire section of closets of clients this coming year:
Wear radiant orchid with darker prints – The structure of such a garment can counteract the too feminine vibe that the color gives off. Wear radiant orchid paired with darker colors and it will work as an accent to lift the mood the other colors
Wear radiant orchid as a color in an accessory – You can effortlessly wear radiant orchid as a color in your wardrobe by adding a patterned scarf that has radiant orchid as one of its color. Also think of adding a handbag in this fabulous shade.
Wear radiant orchid as the main color – If you’re a bold beauty, then wear radiant orchid as the main color in your outfit. A dress is the perfect choice for this option. Style the look with darker colors and prints to anchor the look and keep the sophistication factor in your career attire.
I’m really loving this color. I have come up with so many creative looks for clients (especially men) who would never dream of wearing such a shade.
Is this a color you would wear? If so, how?
