I knew when I selected purple kitten wallpaper for my bedroom (in second grade) that I was onto something. Varying shades of purple have colored my life throughout the years, from bridesmaid dresses to the carpet in my first apartment to an ultra-suede suit I once made. And now my good taste is once again validated, as Pantone unveils its 2018 color of the year … Ultra Violet. Yes!
But before I show you my favorite Ultra Violet must-haves for this year, let’s pay homage to a few fashions from the past and their creative take on the color purple.
What I love about the color purple is that it definitely evokes femininity, but in a more contemplative and serious way than little girl pink or bold fuchsia. Now, how to get this fabulous color in your life? You won’t believe all the items on store shelves in this color, and they are not only limited to apparel. I’m talking jewelry, luggage, lipstick and even coffee makers! Take a look at some of my favorites.
There are also lots of ways to add touches of purple to your wardrobe.
Are you inspired to add some Ultra Violet to your life? A new purse, a throw pillow, jewelry? If you decide on purple kitten wallpaper, though, I must see photos.
