Leading color forecasting company Pantone has named
Ultra Violet the color of the year for 2018. A long
time favorite at Elegant Plus, it coordinates well with
many of the pinks that have been fashionable the last
few years. Those who want a more regal, and less
girly look, can embrace the shade in combination with
metallic bronzes and burnished antique golds, clean
optic white, mystic blues, and mossy shades of green.
Considered a color that taps and expresses the human
creative spirit expect designers to play with both
solids and prints in a wide variety of fabrics,
textures, and finishes. Modern classic silhouettes
will trend more heavily in work and special occasion
wear including sheath dresses, tailored jackets, and
career pants, while more Boho infused looks will embrace
the hue in richer fabrics such as lace and velvet.
Trendy styles in easy-to-wear jersey fabrics will be
great winter resort pack-and-go looks, in addition to
coordinating with favorite leggings and jeans.
