From the runways to your online shopping cart, Pantone's colour of the year is always spot on. Those masters of trend forecasting released their 2014 colour of the year in December, and already shades of radiant orchid are popping up all over the place. You might be scoffing at the idea that naming a shade the colour of the year will have any on your buying habits, but think back over the last year and tell me if you got away from wearing green last year? The year before we were inundated with that tricky to wear shade of tangerine.
We won't get into Miranda Priestly's whole speech from The Devil Wears Prada, but let's just put it this way: it's not necessarily that we're all mindlessly following Pantene's advice and wearing whatever shade they say. It's just that they are able to look into their crystal ball and see which colours are going to be absolutely everywhere until piece by piece your wardrobe or home is saturated in it! This year's shade, radiant orchid, is a vibrant shade of purple that looks amazing on everything from your peepers to your pillows and makes the perfect accent shade when you're wanting to add a splash of colour to a room.
