16 Pretty Finds in Pantone’s Color of 2014, Radiant Orchid


Last year, the people at Pantone proclaimed emerald green the color of 2013, with its rich hue translating into stunning wearable pieces. But for 2014, it’s all about radiant orchid, a pink-tinged purple that’s feminine and universally flattering on all skin tones. When paired with black, it puts a new spin on the pastels-meets-black styling trick from the fall 2013 runways, and mixed into a print, it’s like spring came early.

While you’ll probably see tons of pieces in this shade over the next few months, you can also shop the look now with many items on deep discount. Take Marni’s silky ruched tank, for example, which would look great tucked into a pencil skirt for the holidays (and which is currently at an 85 percent discount). If you’re still looking for a colorful coat, Femme’s double-breasted version, with its fit-and-flare shape, will accentuate the figure, and if it’s too overwhelming to be this bright in the winter, an orchid accessory like ASOS’s hat or Clio Intimo’s pretty bra offers a hint of 2014’s most popular hue. Click ahead to see the sixteen pieces of radiant orchid you can get now.
