At the beginning of the year, the global standardised colour authority, Pantone, named their Colour of the Year. This annual tradition has many waiting in bated breath to see which shade (or shades) will be setting the colour palette for the upcoming twelve months.
For 2022, the Pantone Colour of the Year is 17-3938 Veri Peri – a dynamic yet chill periwinkle blue. The company said that they chose this shade as it represents "taking on modern life and its endless possibilities with an inquisitive mind and carefree confidence."
Want to keep your colours on-trend by wearing Pantone’s 2022 pick? Here are three easy ways to incorporate the very cool Veri Peri into your fashion looks.
1. Laid-back and Looking Good
This cool shade makes for a great laid-back look. So do corduroy jackets, which are versatile and can be worn up or down.
Bring this textured retro fabric into the 21st century by pairing your jacket with a sexy slip dress, statement boots and a boujee beaded bag.
2. From the Boardroom to the Bar
Need a Veri Peri look that transitions seamlessly from day to night? All you need is a winning colour combination. And the right accessories!
A periwinkle blue satin slip skirt, accented by shoes or accessories in the same hue and paired with a tight tee and blazer, makes the cut for workplace and date night attire.
3. Top-to-Toe Colour
Want to make Veri Peri the focal point of your outfit? This shade is universally flattering, making it a great choice for an all-in-one, fuss-free look.
If you wear a periwinkle blue jumpsuit, insert a pop of a primary colour, such as a vibrant red, to compliment this subdued hue. Add even more shades and experiment with layering by adding a shirt underneath.
