Pantone has just announced that Ultra Violet has been named the 2018 Pantone Color of the Year. The Color of the Year is a symbolic color selection, or a sort of color “snapshot” of our global culture.
The folks at Pantone chose Ultra Violet as a symbol of the complex and contemplative. According to Pantone, “Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.”
Above, I have showcased just a few ways to incorporate this new provocative, dramatic hue into your wardrobe. But, one of my favorite new purple pieces is the gorgeous KISSPAT beaded bracelet, pictured. This bracelet is crafted of highly polished, genuine amethyst. The 10 mm stones are beautifully matched in color and are strung on comfortable, stretchy elastic.
This bracelet looks lovely on its own, or paired with other pieces. I personally like it in combination with a David Yurman-inspired cable bracelet, a simple bangle or two, or even a coordinating sterling Trollbeads charm bracelet.
Not only is the shade the exact hue of the 2018 Pantone Color of the Year, the Retail Price is only $14.99, making it a perfect stocking stuffer for the fashionista on your Holiday Gift List!
