In 2016, we loved the harmonious pairing of Rose Quartz and Serenity while it was all Greenery this year (2017). Lighting the way for the year ahead, the Pantone Colour Institute has finally revealed the colour of 2018 — Ultra Violet. Pantone believes that this colour symbolises a hopeful future and thus, is the accurate choice. Well, keeping this in mind, we’re certain that come 2018, Ultra Violet is about to pop everywhere, be it the streets or runway. Which is why we at WODROB want you to prep up already! Here are four looks showcasing how you can incorporate this stunning colour into your every day looks.
Dinner Date Ready
Opt for a feminine dress in the stunning hue when heading out for a dinner date. Given the colour, this dress from Koovs is a perfect pick. The flowy fabric, as well as high-low silhouette, makes this dress even better. Enhance the royal hue by adding gold accents. A pair of gold hoops from Blur, a timepiece from Skagen and a Baublebeads bracelet will complement this outfit. For the feet, a pair of beige or nude heels will do the trick. Add a studded sling bag to finish off this look.
Lunch With Friends
The easiest way for men to incorporate the colour of the year 2018 is to don an Ultra Violet shirt or tee. We’ve got you a long-sleeved t-shirt in the same colour from Bhane. Team it up with a pair of charcoal grey washed denims from Next. Throw over a hooded sweatshirt or bomber jacket in navy blue so there’s colour blocking going on. Opt for a pair of white shoes, preferably sneakers, to keep the look hip and happening. We paired it with these white sneakers from Vans.
Wondering how to incorporate this colour into your workwear? Let us show you how. Wear a white balloon-sleeved top with a pair of Ultra Violet slim-fit trousers from Mango. Stick to basic accessories for this look. A silver Kenneth Cole wrist candy and a tan bag will keep this look classy. Opt for a pair of black tasseled loafers from Aldo to complete this look.
Wear It To Work
Like we mentioned, the easiest way to sport Ultra Violet is to pick out a shirt or tee in the same hue. If you’re heading to work, then a shirt is the best option. We’ve picked this piece from Black Coffee and paired it with checked wool trousers in grey from Next. Stick to a pair of black formal shoes and keep it classy with a black wristwatch, and a black laptop bag from Gauge Machine.
