I can’t get behind Pantone’s Color of the Year at all this year. I do like their Spring 2013 Fashion Color Report though and especially the color African Violet. I am a long time lover of all kinds of purple, even if I don’t wear it all that often. African Violet can can come of as a little twee I think, but it doesn’t seem out of place this time of year when the crocuses are popping up and little ones are wearing their Easter bonnets.
If you are feeling this soft and sweet purple, here’s an outfit for you!
