Purple Pretty Things

Happy New Year! With the new year comes Pantone’s new Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid.
Biannually, Pantone hosts super-secret meetings in varying European capitals to come up with the color for the following year. They then announces the color of the year and publishes it in/on Pantone View, a color trend service that is used by florists, fashion designers, etc…
Remember seeing Pantone + Sephora makeup collection in Sephora stores? In 2012, they collaborated on a makeup line that featured the then color of the year, Tangerine Tango. The collaboration continued in 2013 with Emerald and in 2014 with Radiant Orchid.
So how will you incorporate the new color into your wardrobe? What colors will you pair it with?
I’m loving Prabal Gurung’s palate pairing (below) of black, white, and orchid.

So, I’m a wee bit obsessed with the moto. And by “wee bit”, I mean I’ve ordered 3 shown here plus another ASOS leather one. The moto jacket gets me. If I had to define my signature outerwear style, ┬áIt’d definitely be the moto. It dresses up and down in such a great way and lends a bit of edge to outfits. And we have Irving Schott to thank for such a versatile, iconic piece.
The moto jacket debuted in 1928 at the Harley Davidson store in New York City. The Perfecto, named for Schott’s favorite cigar, became the symbol for rebellion and ruffian-ism. And now, 85 years later, it’s a wardrobe staple. It’s a little bad, but in an oh-so-good way.
