Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2018 is Ultra Violet. “Enigmatic purples,” they write, “have […] long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance.” Now that’s a trend we can get behind!
How can you harness this cosmic hue in your every day wardrobe? Take a look:
1. Up the Ultra
Purple not your colour? No biggie! Focus on the “ultra” if you’re not a fan of the “violet.” Pick another beaming, bright colour and rock what feels right. Try LIBBY in fuchsia or EARTH in turquoise if you want to stand out in the crowd.
2. Style it with Violet
Have an ultra violet blouse, dress, jumper, or skirt? Rock that rad shade up top and keep your footwear to something neutral and complementary: a simple and elegant black heel. Choose something like ZENA or ZOLA, whose black-from-heel-to-toe scheme will give your foot an amazing silhouette.
3. Pinch of Purple
If you want to dabble in ultra violet without letting it overpower you, pair bright purple shoes with an otherwise neutral or toned-down outfit. Bueno shoes are all about bold splashes of colour, so we have plenty to pick from: DONNA (mauve), UNI (purple), JUNO (purple), DANIEL (purple), ASCELLA (purple).
Ultra violet is a fun, sultry shade and we can’t wait to see what trends it inspires this year. Check our blog for help with heels and flats that are totally en vogue this season.
