This season be ready to embrace ‘radiant orchid’— the hottest colour trend in the fashion trail. Radiant orchid blooms with confidence and exudes magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks imagination. Incorporate this vibrant colour in your wardrobe with a tote bag, glamourous flat sandals, a radiant orchid t-shirt or top and an evening dress.
Wardrobe essentials: The soft lilac shade of radiant orchid works perfectly well with basic colours and wardrobe staples. The effervescence of the colour should be the focal point of the look, and to play up fresh, it should be worn with wardrobe staples like ivory or white bottoms, and classic blue or powder blue denims. Also, a solid button down and a floral printed blouse in this hue will cover you for desk hours as well as weekends.
Texture and material: Radiant orchid’s rosy undertones radiate on skin, producing a healthy glow when worn both by men and women. The colour grabs everyone’s attention without trying too hard. This shade has permeated the runways during the spring 2014 fashion shows and is already making its way to the red carpet. Having said that, this tint’s luxuriousness and buoyancy is perfectly complemented with rich fabrics like pure silk, georgette and chiffon. The cuts could vary from structured to fluid, depending on the texture of the fabric.
Light and breezy fabrics are the most suited for the upcoming season and flawlessly harmonise the nonchalance of this colour. I feel sheer maxi skirts will continue to rule the radiant orchid shade this season.
Fashion accessory: Accessories such as earrings and bracelets in big colour blocks would make a bold statement. Also evening accessories such as clutches, bold neck pieces and footwear with gold frames would be glamourous. This elegant colour can add the zing factor to any look. Accessories like wedges are a great way to add the colour to your wardrobe. Also, a structured satchel in this colour is what I highly recommend.
