It’s time to get out of that “I only wear black” mindset, folks. We’re going magenta in 2023.
On December 1, Pantone announced their annual color of the year as PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta, a sultry, cooler red color that we’re just about ready to obsess completely over.
This picturesque red is described by Pantone as, “a shade rooted in nature descending from the red family and expressive of a new signal of strength.” Ultimately, it’s a color that exemplifies perseverance and uncertainty simultaneously, an organic color seen in nature that feels familiar yet strange. Really, it’s a color that feels perfect for the times we’re currently rooted in.
After Pantone announced Very Peri as the color of 2022 last year, Viva Magenta feels like a total contrast from the lighthearted, refreshing feel we got from the pastel periwinkle color. Viva Magenta is certainly more of an in-your-face shade, which is something Very Peri was lacking quite a bit.
Through this strong-headed color, we’re building up our 2023 style through clothing and home decor using her in the forefront. That’s right, we’re rocking Viva Magenta all of 2023, folks, from the best t-shirts to the most comfortable joggers to lampshades and bedding. It’s magenta time, baby.
Looking for some Viva Magenta inspo to incorporate into your day-to-day? No worries, we’ve got you covered. See below and check out all of the magenta pick-ups we’re buying for 2023 to celebrate Pantone’s newest yearly pick.
