TBB Style: Pantone Color of the Year 2018

January 10, 2018, by Whitney

I don't know about you, stylish friends, but every year, I get a little bit excited when Pantone announces the color of the year!  It's not that I obsess over the color or convert my entire wardrobe over to one hue, but it's kind of fun to pay attention to how much the color emerges over the year and to add a few new and current pieces to my closet.

So, the official color of 2018 is called Ultra Violet!  Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute describes the color like this:

We are living in a time that requires inventiveness and imagination.  It is this kind of creative inspiration that is indigenous to PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet, a blue-based purple that takes our awareness and potential to a higher level.  From exploring new technologies and the greater galaxy, to artistic expression and spiritual reflection, intuitive Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come.

So what do you think?  Are you a fan of Ultra Violet?  I do like the color purple, but when I went to write this post, I found that I don't have much of it in my closet and what I do have isn't quite the right shade.  So, what must I do?!  Go shopping, of course!

If you're like me and want to add some Ultra Violet to your wardrobe, here are a few of my picks from cosmetics to a phone case and a staple purse for the year!

skirt     /     earrings     /     tee
purse     /     shoes     /     sweater
nail polish     /     iPhone case     /     lipstick
