Ultra-Violet: Bollywood Wearing The Pantone Colour Of The Year

We’ve established that 2018 is all about the bold and the beautiful. According to the Pantone Colour Institute, Ultra Violet will be the ruling hue this year. Pantone describes this particular purple shade as “dramatically provocative and thoughtful” and further explains that “Purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality”.

Violet is a dynamic colour imposed by the contrasts of cultures that it emanates. Numerous celebrities have already come a little ahead of this trend by implementing it in their outfits. If words such as futuristic, witty, original describe your sense of style, this is the colour for you. Incorporating this colour in multiple facets of fashion is a cakewalk. It has the ability to look fabulous on shoes, on blazers, on vests, on bags, on dress pants, on skirts, accessories and make-up. Some celebrities have made this colour a symbol of protests for feminism and have been joined by several fashion lovers. Contrasted well, this colour can do wonders.
