Last week I attended a morning show on national TV to share some tips for styling the color of the year. As you may heard, Pantone choose Ultra Violet to be 2018’s color. That day I was wearing this H&M dress, about which many of you asked. In fact, the dress is not exactly in Ultra Violet, but features a shade which is very close to it. Speaking of which, it also reveals one of the boldest but yet nicest color combos – purple and orange. I myself even took a step forward, completing it with a clutch in tan. This combination is definitely rather unpredictable, but it fits one of the main trends for Spring/Summer 2018 – bold color combinations.
Other possible combinations with Ultra Violet involve different shades of yellow – pale, lemon, mustard and even neon yellow. Another great match is green. I enjoy the fine contrast with emerald, as well as with light green. And for those extreme purple lovers, I would recommend trying mixing it with pink lavender – yet another trendy color for SS18. However, if you’re more conservative, pick neutral shades or very light gray – they also look great with Ultra Violet.
Generally, Ultra Violet may seem tricky to style, but it actually offers a great number of options. You only have to free your imagination and be brave. In fact, this is what the color symbolizes – imagination, artistic expression, exploration, and spiritual reflection. Interpret it as you like and do not be afraid to be different.
