  • New Year is upon us and with it a fresh color of the year based on research from the Pantone Color Institute. “The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today,” says the institute’s vice president Laurie Pressman. Thus, they’ve revealed that 2018’s defining shade is Ultra Violet (Pantone 18-3838), a blue-based purple that evokes “originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.”

    Whether or not you believe that the color will bring you positive energy in the new year, it’s still a pretty hue that can add a little glam to your life. Just for fun, we’ve rounded up 7 Ultra Violet-inspired items that you can buy online so you can ring in the New Year in style!
