The past couple of years Pantones colour of the year have been pretty striking, we had tangerine in 2012 and 2013 gave us the gorgeous emerald green. Well this year Pantones colour of the year 2014 is something a little more muted as they have chosen radiant orchid, a kind of dusky lilac or mauve colour.
The colour is quite warm toned so will suit those with warmer skin but as we will no doubt be seeing varying shades of it filter through to the high street its likely that there will be bluer based shades available. If you really don’t like how it looks against your face then try it on your nails, feet or as a handbag. I have already been lusting after these radiant orchid colour of the year style picks.
