So, if there’s one thing you can be sure of it’s that the colour named Pantone's colour of the year is going to be everywhere that year! Each year Pantone scours the globe looking for major new colour influences, they also look at trends in the entertainment industries, interior design, fashion design, tech, art, and even socio-economic conditions, all to find that one colour that will represent it all.

"A dynamic periwinkle blue hue with a vivifying violet red undertone blends the faithfulness and constancy of blue with the energy and excitement of red"


What does the Very Peri mean?


For the first time in their history Pantone have actually designed & created this colour from scratch, that’s right, Very Peri is a totally unique new colour! While we love the colour, we love the meaning behind it almost just as much, for Very Peri is said to represent “a carefree confidence and a daring curiosity that animates our creative spirit.” How amazing does that sound? It also perfectly reflects our collective mood, as we slowly but surely move out of the two years of limbo we experienced through Covid, and come out with a renewed sense of empowerment and excitement. In their press release Pantone described their new hue as “a dynamic periwinkle blue hue with a vivifying violet-red undertone that combines the faithfulness of blue with the energy and excitement of redand if there’s one thing we love at My Jewellery, it’s a burst of colour for Spring/Summer. We genuinely can’t wait to rock Very Peri and feel energised and excited for the year ahead.




How to style the colour of the year?


Very Peri is described as a lovely shade of blue with red undertones, which gives it a bit of a lilac vibe. Lilac clothing has been going around for a while now, and it is the perfect colour for Spring. We have been crushing on it so hard! So, what could be a better colour for spring/summer 2022 than Very Peri. Lilac is a great colour to style and looks SO good on everyone, especially when you’ve got yourself a nice little, glowy tan! Pair a pretty lilac blouse with a pair of high-waisted jeans or flared pants to add a bit of edge to your look and don’t forget to add rock chick ankle boots to really complete the look. Alternatively, take Very Peri all the way to it’s girly limits, by getting yourself a cute purple co-ord that will get you on all the best-dressed lists! If you’re looking for easy style, then you simply can’t go wrong with a periwinkle dress. Dresses are the easiest way to add some bold colour and style to your look. If it’s still a bit chilly out style your periwinkle dress with a pair of tights, a cute cardigan and layer over a classic trench coat, for cool (in both senses of the word) girl chic. Then, when the weather finally starts to look up and get sunny, take off the layers, swap out your boots for cute sandals and layer on all of your favourite necklaces and bracelets. The ultimate summer outfit sorted!
