Pantone ‘Color of the Year’ 2018: Ultra violet fashion for redheads

 

Every year, the gods of Pantone announced their ‘Color of the Year’, and aren’t we lucky, because 2018’s winner is also an extremely redhead-friendly shade! Ultra Violet 18-3838 is a deep, rich and warm shade of purple that complements ginger hair with much aplomb (more like a-plum, am I right?).

Purple is well-known to complement redheads, both of their ginger hair and pale skin. The colour contrasts and adds vibrancy to red hair, but at the same time doesn’t wash out fair complexions, making it a perfect pair with gingerness (lucky us, eh?).

With that in mind, here are some ultra violet inspired winter warmer fashion items to suit redheads…

Emma dresses herself in mismatched multi-seasonal clothing and has a talent for sniffing out the next opportunity for coffee.She believes that any new band with a female musician is the next big thing and that whoever is currently dating Ryan Gosling is the luckiest lady on earth.Her biggest obsession is shopping online for castles, (probably) fueled by childish fantasies of finding her prince and settling down for a life of luxury, bathing in a pool of gin and bitter lemon.Other than that, though, she’ll be incessantly researching the latest gingerful news to deliver to Gingerkind.
