18 accessories you can buy now that would get Pantone’s seal of approval
The colour purple
The fashion set has never shied away from a statement. To accent their wardrobes, which mostly consist of shades of black, bold colours have been a natural go-to. Alas, it turns out, deep purple is one shade that has remained under-appreciated save for the heavy endorsement by Prince. Purists consider it too much of a hybrid and tend to worship at the feet of primary hues. Those in search of some chromatic deviance on the other hand, dismiss violet for being neither here nor there; only to make a beeline for the pastels and neons.
But thanks to Pantone, Ultra Violet has finally been given the spotlight as 2018's colour of the year! They're calling it "complex and contemplative", "enigmatic and unconventional", "nuanced and full of emotion". Above that, the colour exudes an inherent mystical quality and is often used to inspire a connection. Make that connection with the biggest colour of the year by welcoming the regal shade into your wardrobe. But if the exact blue-based tone proves hard to come by, why not give intense amethyst a go or take an aubergine with an attitude out for a ride. We doubt Pantone's a prude—love is love.
