Very Peri, also known as the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2022, is a new shade of periwinkle that blends the classic true blue with beautiful violet-red undertones.
After nearly a year of research, the Pantone Colour Institute created and designed this unique colour that symbolises an optimistic attitude that “encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expression”.
The choice of colour by Pantone takes into account careful consideration and analysis of trends each year. Pantone’s colour selection has the power to influence many different products across various industries, including the fashion world. So, when it comes to the latest fashion, how exactly can you wear the 2022 colour of the year? Carry on reading below to discover how to wear this powerful periwinkle shade.
Keep it Simple with Black and White
If you usually opt for more muted colours in your clothing, then periwinkle may feel like a bold choice. However, one easy way to introduce this vibrant colour into your wardrobe is by pairing it with black or white.
Opting for a black pair of jeans with a periwinkle-coloured t-shirt, biker boots, and a leather jacket is a quick way to add some vibrancy to your outfit whilst still playing it cool for an extra touch of charisma; pair it with the FIYAH Flame Ring in sterling silver.
For the summer months, you could pair a periwinkle crop top with a white midi-skirt and sandals for a comfortable yet stylish look appropriate for day and night. Plus, our Twisted Hoop Earrings would make the perfect accompaniment to this look.
Shine Brighter by Pairing with Pastel Yellow
A bold move? Perhaps, but it’s definitely doable if you’re looking to step out of your comfort zone—shades of yellow including lemon, sunflower, mustard, and gold contrast perfectly with periwinkle. This is because when we explore the colour theory surrounding periwinkle, yellow is the exact opposite of this blue-violet colour.
Plus, periwinkle represents serenity and calmness, so when paired with yellow, the colour combination can add a fresh twist to your outfit whilst being easy on the eyes.
Make Periwinkle Pop with Silver
Silver and purple; a sight for sore eyes. This glamourous colour combination can be associated with the festive season, especially for all those holiday parties. However, silver accessories are a perfect combination for any periwinkle-coloured clothing you may own.
When mixed, these contrasting colours offset each other for a more neutral shade, which can create a dynamic and vibrant look.
Have you seen the FIYAH Throat Chakra Necklace and matching Throat Chakra Ring? This stunning collection would perfectly match with a flowing periwinkle midi dress and denim jacket. Or a pair of flares and vibrant periwinkle tee for the ultimate boho style.
Faux Fur is a Periwinkle Match Made in Heaven
If you’re someone who prefers to keep an outfit simple, a faux fur coat can be a great option to add that touch of class to your look. Periwinkle and faux fur work hand in hand as the periwinkle shade can hold its own against the textured faux fur fabric.
A periwinkle-coloured fluffy jumper and jeans can provide a cosy yet stylish look. Match with white trainers and the FIYAH Dreamcatcher Necklace in sterling silver to balance the overall ensemble.
Take your Periwinkle Style to the Next Level
No matter how you choose to wear this beautiful colour, expect to see it making an appearance on the runway and high street this year. This versatile blue-purple shade looks good on everyone and will make an excellent addition to your wardrobe in 2022 and beyond.
