Pantone’s Color of the Year, Viva Magenta 18-1750, is bold and exuberant, rooted in nature, but with many possible hues within its brazen spectrum.  Descending from the red family, it signifies a new narrative and seeing the reality of things with a rebellious spirit and with a sense of inclusivity for all. And it’s surprisingly easy to incorporate into your wardrobe!

As An Accent

The easiest way to introduce a new color is to wear it as an accent. A tie or pocket square is the perfect colorful compliment to any ensemble.

What’s Magenta Beneath

Another way to try out a new, bold color choice is to wear it under your regular clothing! That way it can stay your little secret or be a nice surprise to those who get to see you in your skivvies.
