Ultra Violet Picks of 2018

Happy May everyone! It feels like I blinked and spring arrived. Just kidding, it has actually been the longest winter ever. The warm weather has finally arrived! Which means, the little shopper in me has come our of hibernation! I am constantly looking for new trends, fun deals and great new pieces to add to my closet.

If you haven’t heard the news, Pantone named ‘Ultra Violet’ as their colour of the year! Purple is taking it’s stance, and boy are we ever seeing it in fashion lately. I am always a fan of purple. Not everyone is a fan of this vibrant colour! Well, take a look at these pieces I found – it will be hard to resist purple after you see these ultra cute pieces…

Tops

These tops I have chosen are a mix between casual and professional. I carefully selected different shades of violet from pastel to concentrated. These are definitely my ‘top’ picks for the season when it comes to Pantone’s ‘Colour of the Year’. From Banana Republic to Garage, there is something in this lookbook for everyone…

Dresses

It’s time to put away the sweaters and stock your closet full of those cute springy dresses. I selected these few pieces to really carry that violet vibe all through the season! Each of these dresses add fun, sophistication and trendy fashion into your closet.

 

Jackets

Jackets aren’t necessarily the first thing we think of when the weather starts to warm up. However, when the sun goes down, it can get chilly. What says “spring night out” better than this fun lilac moto jacket? It is as pastel as they come, but definitely a trendy piece worth adding to your closet this season!

 

Shoes and Accessories

If you are new to trying colours like this one, and you don’t want to go bold right out of the gate…these are the items for you. Adding pops of colour to your outfit is always a good idea, but especially when you are trying a new colour you aren’t used to. These pops of violet is perfect for the colour newcomer!

 

Caught the spring shopping bug yet? Don’t worry, I caught it a long time ago. At least the side effects are cute clothes and great style, right? Stay tuned for more fun shop-able posts!

Happy styling!

12 Pantone Coloured Items Under $100

The Style Collective Spring Style Challenge is launching on Monday. I have been planning out the upcoming looks for the last month, and to go along with each look, I want to highlight some of my favourite items that correlate with the themes each day! Today, I thought I would give you several cute items that are centered around the two Pantone colours of the year: Serenity and Rose Quartz.

I had actually never heard of “Pantone” before this year until I read 5 ways to Incorporate the Pantone Color of the Year into your Wardrobe by Julianna at Blush and Camo! I fell in love with these colours mainly because they are two of my favourite colours and have been for a while (especially pink!!).

These are some of my favourite picks!! I love these colours and they are so perfect for Spring and even more importantly, transitioning into Summer!! The best way to incorporate this colour is in accessories, in my opinion. It’s perfect if you don’t want to go too bold with a moto jacket, or a dress (pastels aren’t for everyone), but carrying a cute clutch like this one is perfect!
