How to Wear Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s Color of 2014Pantone has released its color of 2014—it’s radiant orchid, which the company describes as “a captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple, and pink undertones.” Here are some tips on incorporating it into your wardrobe. (For even more inspiration, check out my Pinterest page, where I have a board devoted to the shade.) If Your Motto is “A Little Goes a Long Way” Try: A radiant orchid manicure My polish picks: Butter London’s Molly Coddled polish ($15), a more lavender take on the hue—or Essie’s DJ Play That Song ($8.50), a more fuchsia version. How to wear it: However you want. It can add a pop of color to a neutral outfit, or a bold accent to a coral dress. Your nails are small enough to never really clash with a look. If Your Motto is “Everything in Moderation” Try: Radiant orchid flats My pick: J. Crew Viv patent flats in dark wisteria ($188; on sale for $109.99) How to wear it: Pointy flats look great with skinny pants. The key here is the pants’ color—hew toward neutrals like navy and gray. This will break up your look, especially if you choose a bold color or pattern for your shirt. If Your Motto is “Go Big or Go Home” Try: Radiant orchid pants My pick: Forever 21’s colored zippered skinny jeans in lavender ($15.80) How to wear it: For winter, try them with a chunky sweater in a muted shade, like camel, black, or navy. During warmer weather, you could also pair the pants with a neon shirt like this neon-yellow peplum top ($13.80), also Forever 21. Back to Favin the Maven
