The prettiest shade of blue & how to wear it

Periwinkle blue was the Pantone Color Of Year back in 2022 and one of the main color trends but that doesn’t mean you can’t still wear this stunning color now. This years color trends are full of pastels so keep your periwinkle blue dresses on rotation or snap up a new blue dress or accessory. Did you know that every year Pantone chooses a color of the year and for 2022, ‘Very Peri’ Pantone 17-3938 was it, Viva Magenta in 2023 and Peach Fuzz in 2024. Here’s how to wear this color now.

My love of periwinkle blue started a while back with my dresses and wardrobe and then went onto painting my nails periwinkle blue. They actually turned out more sky blue but I still loved them. There’s a darker Waterloo Blue in the new Butter London Downton Abbey nail polish set that’s super pretty and that goes with all of the bold blues around this year.

Very Peri was on Chet Lo, Lanvin and Xüly Bet Spring 2022 runways to name a few but that was just the tip of the iceberg. Because Pantone didn’t choose their color of the year from their existing colors, they created Very Peri. So designers and brands hadn’t really had a chance to create that exact shade at the time. However, it’s much easier to get hold of now that it’s been around for a while.
