The prettiest 2022 color trend to jump on & how to wear it
Periwinkle blue is one of the main color trends for 2022. This years color trends are fun, vibrant and like we’re seeing with the pantone color periwinkle blue, it’s not limited to just fashion and periwinkle dresses and accessories. Did you know that every year Pantone chooses a color of the year and for 2022, ‘Very Peri’ Pantone 17-3938 is it.
In the real world, pretty much any cool tones of lighter blue-violet pastel tone are cropping up everywhere especially periwinkle dresses.
My love of periwinkle blue started last Summer with my wardrobe and then went onto painting my nails periwinkle blue. They actually turned out more sky blue but I still love 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.
That’s where I’m leaving it but others are coloring their hair and homes in this pretty shade of blue. It’s also one of Good Housekeeping’s top 15 colors trends for your home this year!
Runway inspired 2022 color trends
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, designers and brands haven’t really had a chance to create this exact shade yet.
Periwinkle from pastel to darker shades are taking off as a big 2022 color trend for both men and women. Whether that’s a periwinkle dress, sweater or sneakers, it’s this years color.
