Yes, it has become abundantly clear that the colors of the season are undoubtedly every iteration on the beige to brown spectrum. From a creamy beige, to a burned orange (aka terra-cotta) cappuccino brown, all the way to a 97% dark chocolate shade. Perfectly matched of course to the Pantone color of the year, peach (aka living coral), as many white shirts as you can own, a traditional black, and interestingly a periwinkle blue.
Yes, periwinkle blue, and by the looks of things so far, this shade seems to be the breakout star. We haven’t seen it in a while, and it adds an element of interest to an otherwise monochrome look.
So what exactly is periwinkle blue? It is a color in both the blue and violet families. The name comes from the flower-bearing periwinkle or myrtle herb. It is also known as lavender blue. Basically, a purpley-blue pastel shade.
It matches the terra-cotta shade particularly well, to create a chic and bold color combination. We’ve seen this fabulous shade on the fall runways, and of course on the streets of the fashion weeks last month. We anticipate the color in your wardrobe pretty soon. Let’s get inspired!
