Pink may be our all-time favorite but this year, Ultra Violet’s the color to embrace! In January, Pantone named 18-3838 the color of the year, meaning pretty soon it’ll pop up everywhere including fashion prints, fitness gear, beauty products, kitchen appliances, and even advertising campaigns.

 

Instead of just sitting back and watching the sea of purple inundate our most visited online retailers, get a head start on this electric hue by incorporating it into your visual routine now! Here are some of our recs:

We love the idea of easing into this color and think a vibrant manicure is the perfect place to start. butterLONDON offers an entire collection inspired by Ultra Violet, including a line of purple nailpolish, lipgloss, and even eye liner!

 

Office Accessories:

A bright Moleskine notebook is a classic favorite with a trendy twist and we can’t resist a pop of purple to complement our mostly pink office accessories. Fellow #boss babes may want to stock up on a couple versions to have on deck after filling this one up with to-do lists and on-the-go sketching!

 

Fitness Gear:

Colorful leggings may seem a bit daring but we’re all about a fluorescent sports bra to peek through our mostly black athletic ensemble. Pick up this one from Lorna Jane and wear under a mesh top for the full effect!

 

Clothing:

Despite this week’s unexpected 75 degree day, we’re still aiming to get in as many cozy winter weekends as possible. If you need a break from curling up with your Avalon Sweatshirt, shop this oversized cable knit in bright purple!

Kitchen Necessities:

 If you daydream about being the next Spring Baking Champion, get motivated to test your culinary creativity with these silicone kitchen tools! This 9-piece set includes everything from a whisk to a set of tongs in various colors of the rainbow, including our new favorite shade of purple.
