How To Wear Pantone's Color of the Year: Ultra Violet

If you didn't know already, Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2018 is Ultra Violet! A much more provocative and uplifting hue compared to the earthy green of 2017

"Inventive and imaginative, Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come" - Pantone


From home decor to makeup, the blue-based purple is making its way into everything. However, because the dramatically rich tones of Ultra Violet are so bold, some might find it difficult to incorporate the trending color into their wardrobe. But it's much simpler than it seems!

I’ve found there are so many shades of Ultra Violet that it’s almost impossible not to find the perfect color variation for you. So today babes, I'm giving you the 411 on how you can rock Pantone's Color of the Year.


One of the easiest ways to add Ultra Violet into your wardrobe is by adding a sweater. I love knit pullovers and cardigans because they are so simple to dress up or dress down for any occasion. Just throw on a sweater with your favorite skinnies and accessorize, accessorize, accessorize

Another way to add the color into your life can be with beauty products. I recently purchased an eyeliner from NARS in this color. Its a great break from my dark eyeliner - The purple will brighten up any eye color. If colored eyeliner is not your thing, switch things up at your next mani appointment. Instead of using your go-to color opt for a shade of purple.


This variation of Ultra Violet is gorgeous. Lavender is perfect for the upcoming transition into spring. The color looks great with denim, black, white or army green. Also, I’m in love with the ribbon and pearl detailing on these sweaters. It’s the perfect way to add a little extra flare to your outfit.

Blurry, but happy! :)
