Purple Colors of the Year: Violet and Orchid

2018 Color of the Year: Ultra Violet

The color of the year for 2018 is Ultra-Violetaccording to Pantone.  In previous posts on 2017 color of the year and 2016 colors of the year, I shared a list of gemstones (besides amethyst) that would go with the year’s palate.  This year, below I share some other links on fashion, make-up, and jewelry, as well as home and garden ideas, prior to sharing the chart of gemstones.  Find the chart at the bottom of this post.

2014 Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid

Earlier in the decade the purple color of the year for 2014 was Radiant Orchid.  I did not do a post that year, so I thought I would share a few photo post links that remain on-line for the orchid color as well since the two would go well together.  You probably will not find the make-up in this exact color, but the ideas will work for the darker color or if you can find a lighter purple too.  Below links are Fashion-related or H&G.

Of course, we should not be surprised if a color palette is repeated, after all the color wheel  used for fashion and design starts with a variation of six of the seven colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo aka denim blue,  and violet) of the rainbow.
