Radiant orchid
 is Pantone's Color of the Year for 2014. I wasn't as excited about this as I was about last year's Color of the Year, emerald green. I find radiant orchid a tricky color to pull off, especially given my darker olive skin tone. But as styles and trends go, it doesn't hurt to give it a shot.


I purchased this top off of Alla Moda Thrift Shop last year and have not been able to use it since because I wasn't a hundred percent sure about the color. It was really an impulse buy because the color itself is beautiful, but it wasn't something I've worn before, so I didn't know how I'd wear or style it.


Now that radiant orchid is the official color of the year, I take it as a sign that I should try wearing the color at least once. If it goes wrong, well then, it will be a funny "back in the day" photo to look at when I'm browsing through my memory box with my grand children, having a good laugh at my silly fashion choices.

The true radiant orchid is a little more vibrant than this. You can check out the Pantone website to see.

The trick when wearing color you aren't familiar with is to find the shade that's right for you. If you are patient enough, try out clothes in different shades and see which shade fits you best. It can be different anyone, and it might take a few pieces before you find your match. Have a little bit of patience and it might even result to a new favorite color ;) Who knows?

Have a wonderful week ahead!
