I have to say, when I saw the Color of the Year for 2014 I was a little iffy...and still am. I'm not a huge purple fan (then again I'm not a pink fan yet here I am with a hot pink sweater...), and I'm not sure how many bold purple pieces I'm going to invest in this year, but I can see the appeal. It will be a great accent color throughout the year (spring brights and fall jewel tones anyone?).
I could totally see it as a cute pair of chinos or a skirt paired with pearls and a classic button down. So I guess we shall see on this color as the year progresses...
I think a great way to incorporate the color of the year into your wardrobe is to use accent pieces like the J.Crew statement necklace, or the bright C. Wonder pumps. Paired with neutrals these pieces could really pop and be a great (affordable) way to incorporate the color into 2014 outfits. I do like the top from Old Navy, and it would go great with a pair of skinny jeans and loafers or a neutral colored skirt or shorts.
Like I said, I probably won't be investing much into pieces colored in Radiant Orchid, but the color is definitely growing on me and I think would flatter most skin tones. Picking up a few accent pieces throughout the year could be a great way to incorporate the color into your wardrobe without breaking the bank!
What do you think of the 2014 Color of the Year? How will you be incorporating it into your wardrobe?
