From Pantone:

“A modern and surprisingly versatile shade, Radiant Orchid enlivens the skin, making all who wear it feel more healthy and energetic. Blending both cool and warm undertones, purple is an appealing hue for distinctive combinations and flattering to many hair, eye and skin tones.”

Looking at past colors of the year, it’s about time a shade of purple was chosen.

Radiant orchid is beautiful purple with touches of pink. With its rosy undertones, the color gives men and women a healthy glow. You just have to choose the right shade for you.

Loving radiant orchid and navy blue. The two are both rich colors but are contrasts in light and dark. It’s a lovely balance.

You could choose to wear a whole dress in radiant orchid.

Or maybe choose just a few accessories.
