The 2014 Color of the Year Is...

Winter may be quickly approaching, but consumers should take heart in a spring-like hue that will likely saturate everything from clothing lines to industrial items across the nation.

Radiant Orchid, a shade of purple with fuchsia and pink undertones, was announced on TODAY Thursday as the 2014 Color of the Year by Pantone, the leading authority on the hues used in paint, fabrics and manufacturing.

Pantone described Radiant Orchid as a modern and “surprisingly versatile shade” that can be worn by both men and women. It noted the color already made its way into makeup lines, on runways and in interior design products.

I adore this color!  Will it be showing up in your wardrobe more often now that it's been named the 2014 color of the year?
