Luxe for Less: Accessorize With The "It" Color of the Year

Posted Friday April 11, 2014 9:14 AM GMT

When Pantone announced the color of the year was Radiant Orchid, the majority of us were in the heart of winter and kept to our dark, deeper-hued ensembles.

With the weather finally warming up, it’s time to incorporate this stunning shade into our wardrobe. Not only does the shade scream spring, but it inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health.

If you’re not sold on the hue just yet, let’s start subtly. This Marc by Marc Jacobs “Can't Touch This" clutch will help you fall in love with the undertone, but the price tag brings back the winter blues. Instead opt for Michael Kors carbon-copy for only $88.

It’s not quite time to show off your gorgeous gams, but while you wait, radiant orchid skinnies are just the ticket. Slip into Forever 21’s ankle length jeans for only $16 for that extra boost of confidence and cash.

Nothing says spring like a pair of sexy specs! We’re obsessed with Bottega Veneta over-sized sunnies, but we’d rather save salary and ourselves from the sun with Armani’s purple hue sunglasses for only $65.

To top off your ensemble, opt for this Oasis pretty purple tank for just $37. Pair it with a cream-colored leather jacket and you’ll be named fashionista of the year.
