How to Color Block with 2022 Pantone ‘Color of the Year’ Very Peri

Purple – well more distinctly Very Peri has taken a hold of 2022 in an amazing way. Pantone has announced that the lavender blue hue is our go-to Color of the Year and I personally couldn’t be more excited. Ironically in 2021 I decided to reevaluate my closet and curate a new elevated look for myself. Most of my clothes were casual chic (with some dressy sprinkled in) since I had been a Visual Merchandising Manager for so long. I had to wear stylish but comfy clothes so that I could manage my team, pick up heavy mannequins, climb up sky high ladders to put up window banners and more. So since leaving that field I was in great need of a wardrobe overhaul. 

And that’s where purple comes in: it was one color I barely had anything in. I realized I bought so little purple because instead of a varying hue of purple being available it was instead just crayon purple. And to be honest that purple isn’t the cutest but when paired right with other colors it can be a vibrant, head-turning look. Along with varying shades of purple I added more green (Greenbriar), yellow (Cornsilk) and blue (Tourmaline.) As well as more heels! Yeah! I then focused on only purchasing items that would elevate items I already have an viola – a whole new wardrobe and style was crafted.

So here are my style tips on how to color block outfits using Very Peri.
