The past couple of years have been some of my favorite years for Pantone’s Color of the Year. 2017 brought us Greenery, a refreshing shade symbolizing new beginnings. In 2016 we got a two-for one with the beautiful shades of Rose Quartz (a blush pink) and Serenity (a soft baby blue). This year’s Pantone COTY is Ultra Violet: a vibrant purple that “communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points toward the future,” says Pantone.

Purple is one of my favorite colors, so 2018’s COTY pick is the best fashion news I’ve heard all year! Confession: I don’t own that many items of purple clothing. I have a couple pairs of sneakers that feature this regal color, but that’s about it. So it was only natural that I picked up the coziest sweater ever in the best color ever while shopping last week. This super soft chenille sweater was under $30 and came in so many beautiful colors, but the violet shade won my heart. This sweater is now $20 which means you can get all the colors if you can’t pick just one!

I paired my new Ultra Violet piece with these pull-on jeggings from Liverpool that I mentioned on Instagram. These jeans are amazing! The fit is perfect and they keep their shape all day long. Plus they will make your butt look amazing and who doesn’t want that?! To complete my outfit I wore these berry-colored booties from H&M. I definitely sense a theme with this outfit because these booties are so comfortable! I wore them for a long holiday shopping trip and it felt like I was walking on air the whole time.

It’s so easy to incorporate this bold, royal hue into your existing wardrobe. I’ve linked all of my favorite pieces below that will work with whatever you already have in your closet!
