Pantone (the world-renowned authority on color) has declared radiant Orchid as the 2014 color of the year. The beautiful thing about this purple shade is that it looks gorgeous on brown beauties. The versatile color ranges in shades of fuchsia and purple with pink undertones, and is a favorite of FLOTUS Michelle Obama (who’s been seen in the color on a number of occasions). Take a page from her book and incorporate the color into your style repertoire now.
