Want a pop of color for 2014? Color yourself pretty with the color of the year-RADIANT ORCHID. Many boutiques in Austin will have this fab color that will look good on almost all skin tones. However, if you’re looking for that one-of-a-kind piece, a full ensemble, or a single piece to brighten things up, places such as Buffalo Exchange, Moss, Feathers and Prototype can add that perfect “Austin” touch.
They say that April showers bring May flowers…although; in Austin, we may be a few months ahead. Spring is right around the corner and fortunately for us, Spring 2014 collections are in stores right now. For most of us, Spring is a time of refresh and renewal. Over the years you may have noticed that we tend to revert back to whites and pastels and fortunately for us this year’s “IT” color falls right within those guidelines. Not all shades of purple are created equal – periwinkle, grape, violet, lavender, aubergine, eggplant, and lilac simply won’t cut it this year.
“Not all shades of purple are created equal”
Radiant Orchid, the pantone color of 2014 is assured to influence both fashion AND interior design. With that said be on the lookout for some new faux velvet wallpaper while dashing your closet with a few orchid color pieces to add to your wardrobe. It’s fair to say that everyone looks good in this color and if that isn’t convincing enough take a stab at wearing a subtle accessory with that orchid underlay and see what the response is, you just never know, this pantone color of the year may flatter you more than you expected.
