Taking Inspiration From Pantone’s Colour of the Year: Very Peri

by Samantha Noronha

Pantone has announced “Very Peri” as 2022’s Color of the Year. A periwinkle, purple tone, the shade is described to be the “happiest and warmest of all the blue hues.” For those who usually opt for neutral, muted palettes, an easy way to introduce “Very Peri” to your wardrobe is to style with black or white items.
Of course we can expect a dash of very peri in art, home decor and even technology in the coming year, but fashion lovers can expect a world of options. To help bring that “spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence” into your everyday wardrobe, we’ve rounded up our top picks of clothes and accessories in very peri (or the closest hues we could find).

If you’re someone who doesn’t experiment much with color, start with a plain ol’ purple dress–a dress that means party all night. Teardrop studded earrings and black and white heels can conclude your look.
A cute little number always packs a chic punch no matter the hue. Play “Very Peri” in the lightest shade possible with these elegant numbers. Keep your accessories to a minimum with all things gold and seal off your look with a bold finish to your eye-catching ensemble.

Casual Chic
The beauty of cute-but-casual outfits is that you can make a look out of all your favorite basics, from a hoodie to a pair of jeans. Of course you want to look your best at all times, right? After all, when you look good, you feel even better. But undoubtedly when it’s very peri, even a dressed-down outfit carries itself like a statement piece.
Sure, very peri by itself is undoubtedly quite the playful colour. But for a twist on a fun yet casual look, you can also consider pairing the color with quirky complementary colours. Take pastel yellow for instance. Elsewhere, we’re playing around with different textures and finishes including sparkly sequins and faux fur.

Pantone claims the new colour has been chosen for the “transformative times” we’re living in, and that the shade “helps us to embrace this altered landscape of possibilities, opening us up to a new vision as we rewrite our lives.”
So much about the new year is uncertain. But one thing we can always be certain of, is that no matter what cards we’re dealt, we’ll always have a winning hand with a ‘Very Peri’ wildcard in our arsenal!
