We put together five different ways to wear 2022’s Color of the Year. Whether you’re into neutral tones or looking for ways to make that periwinkle pop, these color combinations will keep you looking fly this 2022.
1. Blushing in Periwinkle
Periwinkle is a far more interesting color than you think. It’s a mix of two different tones that make it easier to pair with other hues. For our first entry, we’ll match the color of the year with pinks! This combination will definitely make you the blushing star of every party you’ll attend this year. Surprise everyone with a boho chic midi dress in plum. With voluminous sleeves and four tier hem, it’s already a grand approach to the color of the year. All you need now is a set of accessories to elevate your look. A multi-strand leather bracelet with rhinestones looks great in boho fashion. Keep it simple with pink leaf earrings and add flair to your hair with a tie dye print scarf pony in pink. Don’t forget to finish off your look with a ring set in gold and rose quartz.

The color purple has long been associated with royalties. What better way to show off that regal flair than with a mix of golds and purples? Start off with something simple like a fitted maxi dress in purple. With a side slit, it’s sultry and classy at the same time. Make your neckline more interesting with a double-layered rhinestone charm necklace and match it with a charm bracelet. Turn heads with gold-plated double flower earrings. It gives just the right flair to an otherwise simple look. Keep your timepiece just as posh with a gold watch set with stone.

You can find the colors meld together in harmony in a long sleeve turtleneck top with geometric patterns. Match this casual top with a more glamorous bottom like knee-ripped flare jeans. Champagne glass beaded earrings add a quirky sense to your look, especially when matched with a lunar-themed ring. Finally, your look should come together with a shoulder bag in green velvet with a colorful strap.

Black is easily the best color to pair with anything, even the boldest of hues like the color of the year. Be the center of attention in a midi dress with high-low style. With voluminous sleeves, it’s sure to catch anybody's attention. Highlight your decolletage with a black lava stone diffuser necklace. Give your ears the same treatment with a pair of double-layered dangling earrings.
