Closet inventory for ultra violet, Pantone 2018 color of the year

I’ve highlighted Pantone colors of the year before (greenery in 2017, rose quartz and serenity in 2016marsala in 2015, and emerald in 2013); Pantone chooses a color every year as a “A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.”

For 2018, Pantone chose the color Ultra Violet, a color that “communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.”

Pantone Color of the Year 2018, Ultra Violet

I actually am a personal fan of Pantone’s choice this year. I have very pale skin and dark hair, so dark purple looks GREAT on me! So as I have done the last few years, I went through my closet to see what I already had close to the Pantone 2018 Color of the Year. It turns out, I have a LOT of dark purple items in my closet, y’all, including accessories, lip stain, shoes, tops, blazers, coats, dresses, and denim.

As you can see, it’s often not necessary to buy all-new items to stay on trend; first, take stock of what you’ve got already and remix those items! Remixing = real life.

    You just reminded me of how I’ve wanted to add more purple to my wardrobe and still haven’t! It’s my favorite color and I might own one purple item! So many lovely shades you have.

      This is a great color on you Jen & also one of my favorites. Violet was my mom’s middle name & amethyst is my birthstone, I can’t help but love purple! Although I’d hoped to be like you & Sam, with zero fashion spending this year, I think I’ll have to look for some purple pieces!

      It’s funny, someone once asked me how I define “favorite colors,” and for me, it comes down to colors I like to wear (and that look good on me). So my favorite colors in life are also favorite colors in my wardrobe: purple, red, royal blue, and berry colors. To each her own! 🙂
