The Official Color of the Year: Ultra Violet

Just in: this purple shade is taking over.

The Pantone Color Institute is recognized worldwide as forecasters of color trends for each year and this year they have spoken: ultra violet is the official color of 2018. As their website states: ” Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.” As you can see, I took a shot at incorporating and styling a similar shade of this color during Milan Fashion Week. I definitely saw a lots of shades of purple during fashion month  and we can expect to see upcoming trends and styles in these colors. I feel like purple is not a very conventional color in fashion and it can be a bit out there and difficult to pull off so I definitely agree with Pantone when they say that this color will bring about a lot of creativity! What do you all think of this year’s color? Love it or hate it?


El Instituto de Color Pantone es reconocido mundialmente como pronosticador de las tendencias de color para cada año y este año han hablado: el color oficial del 2018 es ultra violeta. Como su página dice: “Ultra Violeta simboliza la experimentación y la disconformidad, estimulando a las personas a imaginar su marca única en el mundo, y empujar los límites a través de medios creativos.” Como pueden ver, tomé la oportunidad de incorporar un tono similar de ultra violeta durante la Semana de la Moda de Milán. Definitivamente vi muchas cosas de tonos morados durante el mes de la moda y podemos esperar ver muchas tendencias y estilos en estos colores. Siento que el morado no es un color muy convencional en la moda y puede ser un poco difícil usarlo e incorporarlo en tu día a día, así que definitivamente estoy de acuerdo con Pantone cuando dicen que este color generará mucha creatividad. ¿Qué piensan todos del color de este año? ¿Les encanta o no tanto?
