Every year sees hot new styles, new hot patterns and new hot colors. It’s hard to keep up with the latest thing without breaking the bank, but there are easy ways to incorporate current trends into an already existing wardrobe. Radiant Orchid, or a deep violet, is the hottest color on the runway right now. Wear it casually, formally, or just as an accent. Like any color, it suits some more than others but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it work for you.
Before you begin to assimilate a new trend into your already existing style, you have to assess your overall style and your current wardrobe first. Sometimes we just need a refresher and sometimes we find that a new trend suits us perfectly. So first thing’s first, where do you stand? Are deep, rich colors your thing? Do you currently have any in your wardrobe? Or perhaps your wardrobe is monochromatic or mostly neutral? There are plenty of ways to try and incorporate a new trend to suit you. If you find yourself agreeing with the latter, this rich orchid could be the thing for you. It’s simultaneously subtle but bold. When paired with neutral colors, its true richness stands out without being too over-the-top yet is still classy and eye-catching. Even if you wear a lot of black or dark colors, orchid will fit right in by adding a hint of color to your already edgy look. If you’re going for a more outrageous look, pair this color with an animal print or another neutral toned print or pattern. If you already dress with a lot of color, you don’t have to stray away from this deep tone, in fact, if you tend to wear a lot of bold colors, this darker color could tone down and balance out your look if paired with complementary colors such as yellows or even greens.
Once you’ve concluded where your wardrobe stands color-wise, you can move onto items. If the color looks great with your skin tone, go ahead and rock it with a blouse and printed pant, or perhaps the other way around with an orchid skinny pant and monochromatic top and flats. If you’re not sure whether you want to commit to an item of clothing, there are always accessories. A deep violet handbag is edgy but elegant, it’s dark but has that hint of color that can add to any ensemble. And no one can have enough scarves. Try a solid scarf or try to find a pattern that incorporates it. An orchid statement necklace would look stunning against any neutral top, especially any little black dress.
The possibilities are endless, but when it comes to trying new trends, always start with small doses. Try out some accessories and perhaps move onto bigger pieces if you’re unsure, but don’t be afraid! Have fun and experiment, that’s what trends are all about.
