Styling with Pantone’s Color of the Year – Radiant Orchid

The unveiling of Pantone’s “Color of the Year” has always been a treat for designers and fashion lovers alike. Pantone is the color authority, with their color Matching System consistently being used as the ultimate color guide by various industries, including the fashion industry.

The color unveiling for 2014, Radiant Orchid, is no exception. Like the orchid flower, the Pantone hue emanates the blooming energy of springtime with a timeless elegance. As far as styling your life with Pantone’s Radiant Orchid, you can imagine that the power couple of energy and elegance will work in your favor!

Shine Bright in Sparkly Attire

You have that sparkle in your eye that’s grabbing everyone’s attention.  What matches perfectly with your upbeat attitude than some luminescent sparkles? The only problem is trying not to look like a walking holiday ornament. Don’t worry, I’ll show you how.


Keep it Casual

Since you’ll be stunning everyone with shimmers, maintain your everyday hair and makeup. If you must go big (I get it), try a little bit more cat-eye than usual. This allows your gazers to look in your eyes without getting distracted by blown up hair.

Football Meets Fashion for a Good Cause

The National Football League’s Super Bowl is as American as apple pie. The event draws in legions of spectators and is considered to be the biggest sports event of the year. Football is known as a tough, no-holds barred sport. Fashion also has its multitudes of devoted spectators, and it too can be considered a sport of sorts – exciting and dramatic, with its best designers being the boldest risk-takers.

So what better way to contribute to a good cause than to have football team up with fashion? The National Football League Foundation and The Council of Fashion Designers of America have gathered up a group of forty-eight of fashion’s brightest designers to craft their renditions of the classic football helmet.
