Are you totally bored with your wardrobe? When the weather outside is frightful and multiple layers are essential, it’s easy to get discouraged when putting together an outfit each morning. If you could use a little style inspiration, turn to Pantone.

In December, Pantone, the undisputed authority on color, announced Viva Magenta as its 2023 Color of the Year. With this news, you can safely assume that you’ll see the vibrant color pop up more and more as the year goes on, so why not add a dash of the on-trend hue to your closet?

Pantone declared the shade as a worthy statement color: “It is a new animated red that revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying, and a boundaryless shade that is manifesting as a stand-out statement.”

Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, added that “PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta descends from the red family and is inspired by the red of cochineal, one of the most precious dyes belonging to the natural dye family as well as one of the strongest and brightest the world has known.”

Luckily, the eye-catching shade is easy to find and style! The color also goes well with other jewel tones (like emerald and sapphire) and neutrals like beige and other earth tones. So whether you decide to top off your outfit with just a touch of the punchy pigment or opt for a monochromatic look, you can’t go wrong.
