Pantone Announces Radiant Okra as the New “It” Color for SpringYanira Garza
Early on in the year, everyone was ranting and raving that Pantone had announced a beautiful shade for 2014, Radiant Orchid. I personally thought it would be a great color in beauty while others found great pieces in fashion, but eventually the excitement faded and right before spring, Radiant Orchid failed to keep our attention. With that said, Pantone announced that they are now working on a new color schedule and announcement per season. Denying Radiant Orchid’s lackluster following as a cause for the change, according to Apartment Therapy, a source claimed that Radiant Orchid had “served its purpose.” With that said, say hello to Radiant Okra. This new hue is said to be the “It” color for spring 2014. While the announcement of the new change was made only days ago, I’ve found some very promising pieces to add Radiant Okra and its likeness to your wardrobe now.
