Every year has a color hierarchy that cannot be ignored, especially in fashiondom. While Emerald Green ruled color charts (and wardrobes) last year, 2014 belongs to Radiant Orchid (after all, Pantone says so). Considering that we are lovers of all things feminine chic, we couldn’t be happier about this refreshing pick. And we bet that the quintessential Luxemi girl (just like us) is already busy making some closet space for this year’s crowned color!
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, was quoted saying, “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.”
Here are the many ways you can introduce this color into your repertoire for a chic (and Pantone-approved) look.
- Luxemi, of course, gives you a wide array of options in this lovely hue. Take your pick from our Lilac Salwar with Silk Leheriya Border, Wedding Saree with Aria Pitta, Tonal Saree with Paisley Sequins and Purple and Magenta Bandhani Saree among many others.
- Clutches in this color promise to uplift a look while jewelry with a touch of amethyst is a good way to go too.
- And the color need not be restricted to your outfit alone. Make up in Radiant Orchid and its accompanying shades is just as impact making.
- And for the real deal, why not tuck a few orchid blooms into your chic updo when headed for your next champagne soiree?
