Pantone Unveils Color of 2014: Radiant Orchid

radiant-orchid-swatch

The last two years I have hated the Pantone colors. 2013’s “Emerald” and 2012’s “Tangerine Tango” were just not up my alley. The last Pantone color I absolutely loved was all the way back in 2006, Sand Dollar. Although I did like 2011’s “Honeysuckle” a bit.

Pantone recently released it’s 2014 color “Radiant Orchid”, a pastel pinky-purple color. It’s cute but I don’t think it’s cute enough to be color of the year. It’s just not wearable by everyone. It’s a cool toned color, so it may not be the most flattering for people with warm toned skin. What do you think? Will you be wearing “Radiant Orchid” in 2014?

    I really like purple but this color doesn’t wow me either. I just think Pantone of the year should be a color that packs a punch!
