Pantone has picked its color of the year, and this time around the award goes to Radiant Orchid! This pink-purple hue is going to be all the rage this year, and we have a feeling you’ll see it on everything from fashion to kitchen appliances. If you’re itching to include the latest color of the year in YOUR life, you’re in luck because we have plenty of trim, ribbons and notions in this eye-popping shade.
These pleated and beaded trims are great for adding a vibrant touch to home decor. They would look great on a pillow, or a fun and funky apron!
This long fringe is perfect for home decor, but it can also be used to make a killer flapper skirt or dress!
We have satin ribbon in almost every color because it’s such a versatile style! Use it as a sash on a dress, a bow on a present or a beautiful hair tie.
Swarovski crystals come in a wide range of colors, and we’re proud to have a wide selection! These pinks, reds and purples are great for adding a splash of sparkle to your attire.
Now that the wait is over and we know what color we’ll be seeing everywhere for the next year, how are you going to incorporate it into YOUR style?
In years past, Fashion Week was solely intended to showcase a designer’s collection. Now it has become a who’s who, and who’s wearing what in the fashion world. With the rise of social media outlets fashion week revolves around much more than the designers. Those attending shows now dress to impress ( fashion photographers that is) We at M&J can not handle how great some of the fashion selections have been. The D.I.Y options are endless; we’re already stocking up on fur, feathers, rhinestones and studs. Here is a recap of our favorite emerald green street style recaps from New York, Paris, and Milan Fashion Week.
Emerald has been ruling the runways therefore it is only necessary to incorporate the “it color” into our lifestyles. Many bloggers have been creating emerald infused pieces and we’ve rounded up 5 that we particularly love. The following D.I.Y’s will make everyone around you green with envy.
