Continuing right along with our Pantone Fashion Colours for Spring/Summer
2010, violet is a beautiful color for the warmer months. Pantone’s violet is
nice and bright and not too saturated, which means it won’t look dated and
wintery for Spring. Instead it evokes images of beautiful purple sunsets,
pretty spring flowers and dragonflies.
Violet looks great as an accent piece (like on this beautiful brooch or
gold and violet earrings) or as the main color on an elegant tea dress. Since it’s such a
vibrant color, it’d be best to wear it as an accent or a main piece, but not
both. Dress up this gorgeous violet peony dress with a pair of white sandals
for a perfect tea time outfit or pair the violet shoes with a white sundress
for an easy beach outfit!
Pantone’s violet is the perfect splash of color to warm us up from our
winter doldrums. With just enough hues of pink inside of it to keep it bright but
not bubbling, items in this shade are a must-have for Spring and Summer 2010!
