Radiant orchid is pretty much everywhere as the color of the year. How do you wear it? How don’t you wear it would be a better question. Purses, dresses, tops, bottoms, visors, hats, shoes, boots, jewelry, nails, lips — even lightbulbs and more. And if the Australian Open is any indicator, the color will hit workout clothes in a big way. Serena Williams, Samantha Stosur, Li Na, and Maria Sharapova are just a few of the women sporting radiant orchid — right down to the shoes in some cases.
But don’t count out blue. Women not wearing orchid are wearing lots of blue. And so are the men.
Radiant orchid is everywhere. And it will add a pop of color to any outfit. I think I need new shoes and a new purse.
