Viva Magenta!

Viva Magenta!

You either love pink or you hate it. But magenta. Now that’s a different story. Stick with me here. I view magenta as the fierce, joyful, and exciting sister to pink. It has the passion and power of red mixed with the calmness of violet. It’s a kick ass color and honestly, looks good on almost everybody. And since you are about to see it pop up while shopping around Portland this year, I am going to give you ideas on how to incorporate it into your wardrobe. 

Accessorize! 

For those of you whose uniform consists of mostly blacks, grays, and neutrals -and you want to keep it that way- this is an easy opportunity to insert some pop of color. Try it with:

Sunnies 

Scarves

Beanies

Jewelry

Another noncommittal way is to throw on some magenta lipstick. You never know, you might just find your favorite shade. 

Are you already a fan? Then the time has come for some magenta shoes or a bag. The reason these two weren’t in the accessories category is that you have to already like the color before adding something to your closet that typically holds a higher price point. We’re all about shopping mindfully here!

Do you like the color but unsure how it will go with what you already have? Here are some color palette ideas to start you off…

This is the year to try something new. Be bold. Shake things up! What’s the worst that can happen?
