Pantone Color Institute announced “Ultra-Violet” as the official 2018 Color of the Year, a bright, highlighter hue used throughout history to represent political symbolism. Trend forecasters even included the saturated purple color in their reports with design houses such as Gucci, Rochas, La Perla, Loewe and more sending brilliant ultra-violet looks down the catwalk. I can only think about my favorite singer of all time Prince’s Purple Rain in regards to the color purple, I’m excited about a color that stands for hope, discovery, limitlessness, and reflection. So whether you’re a beginner or an advanced fashionista, take a look to see how you can rock the 2018 Color of the Year with confidence and ease.
