Radiant Orchid – 2014 Color of the Year

by pinksoda

Roses are red, violets are blue, radiant orchid is this year’s color for you! Pantone has officially named the 2014 color of the year as Radiant Orchid. It is actually a lovely lavender/fuchsia mix! For most fashion savvies out there I know you guys have been waiting for this news and I hope this year’s color did not disappoint you. Personally it didn’t, I think it’s fun though I am not into the purple-ish color but I think radian orchid is fun, not so bold and anyone can pull off a radiant orchid fashion.

The image below should give you a clear image of the radiant orchid color. It’s “an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones,” as Pantone described it. If last year’s Emerald symbolizes growth, renewal, regeneration, and prosperity, 2014’s Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality and symbolizes confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. Makes me want to wear the color everyday! 😀

Here are some fashion finds from one of my online favorite stores, Zalora PH. I would wear any of these at any given time!

Some of the casual dress I found interesting. Since I want to play it safe, I especially love the Emberica Dress – the one with the black accent. Check it out HERE to get one (I know I will as it is quite affordable!)

radiant orchid flats

Flats and sandals in radiant orchid. They all look easy to compliment with.

radiant orchid shoes

I love the Scarlet Amber Peeptoe Heels (bottom left – two-toned peep-toe platform pumps)

And the wedge and pumps I’d love to wear in a casual chic outfit.

I am loving this year’s Color Of the Year the Radiant Orchid. There is something elegant about it and in fact, I am wearing one. Well, I am wearing a sweater one, which kept me warm during my run awhile ago. Beautiful color!
