Style Tips

It’s that time of the year again! The color experts over at the Pantone Color Institute have just revealed the 2018 color of the year: Ultra Violet.

The purple hue is described by Pantone as “a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade” that “communicates originality, and visionary thinking that points us towards the future.”


A cool choice, no? If you like it or not, this is the colour you will see everywhere in 2018!

On the runway, the likes of Calvin Klein and Gucci have already incorporated this powerful hue in their up-coming Spring/Summer 2018 collections, and soon you’ll want to have this colour in your closet too.

Though this might appear to be a difficult colour to incorporate in your own wardrobe, the Pantone Color Institute insists that “Ultra Violet lends itself to unique color combinations in fashion and is easier to pair with all colors on the spectrum than one might think”.

If you’re in need of some fashion tips, you’re in luck! Pantone has provided some fashion and beauty tips to wear this powerful hue.

Here are 3 tips to rock Ultra Violet in 2018!


For a luxurious look, Ultra violet can be paired with golds or other metallics, while greens and greys can provide an elegant finish when combined with this purple hue. This colour will also soon be found across accessories like jewelry and eyewear, which you can wear to complete your looks.


Play with materials to wear the Ultra Violet shade in various settings. Wear it in a velvet material for an evening look or in your athleisure wear for a more modern outfit.


Incorporate Ultra Violet into your beauty routine by wearing matte purple on the lips or nails to make a bold statement. A shimmery eyeshadow in this purple shade will also be a great option for an evening look.
