To quote the True Fashionista peeps at Vogue, welcome to the Magentaverse! It's been quite a year, 2022. From a lingering global pandemic to political and racial unrest, it's been a lot to deal with, so what better way to start the new year than with a fresh, new color? That's right, True Fashionista peeps. Pantone has unveiled their color of the year for 2023, and we couldn't be more excited.

Viva Magenta!

To be more precise, its proper name is 18-1750 Viva Magenta. Here's what you need to know about this vibrant featured hue, which will surely add some much-needed life and excitement to our wardrobes after such a difficult couple of years. And who doesn't love any shade of pink as much as we do at True Fashionistas, Naples' best consignment store?   


Magenta is a bright, vibrant pink with hints of purple and was only recently introduced to the Pantone color range in 2019. It's the perfect shade to inject some life and fun into your wardrobe. Magenta is also an excellent color for all skin tones, so don't be afraid to experiment with it! To be more precise, Pantone Color Institute's Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman fabulously stated recently, "It's brave, it's fearless, it's pulsating, and it promotes optimism and joy." Echoing her sentiments, Pantone Color Institute VP Laurie Pressman said, "This is an unconventional color for an unconventional time. And the biggest overriding factor in shaping the time has been our experience with COVID in forcing us to make changes that willingly or not have transformed our lifestyles." Where else to find a store full of viva magenta but True Fashionistas, Florida's largest lifestyle consignment store?


Magenta can be worn a few different ways. For starters, you can get inspired by Jennifer Lopez' November 2022 Vogue cover. From there, be inspired by designs from, among others, Christopher John Rogers, Gucci, and Loewe featuring the now iconic hue. Just in time for holiday get-togethers, get your mitts on Dress the Population's Nicole Sweetheart Neck Cocktail dress in our shade of the moment. Sam Edelman's belted wool blend coat in magenta guarantees you'll be seen for miles while holiday shopping. A magenta cami from On Gossamer is the perfect bottom casual tee for your layered looks.

If you're looking for something bold and attention-grabbing, try pairing magenta with black or white. This creates a True Fashionista contrast that is sure to turn heads. Suppose you want something more subtle, pair magenta with other pastel colors like baby blue or yellow. This gives off a more whimsical vibe perfect for springtime. No matter how you wear it, magenta is sure to make a statement. And don't forget your Gucci rouge a Levres Mat lipstick for the final touch of magenta magic! Viva magenta has also worked its way into footwear with Adidas' Supernova running shoe for that annual New Year's resolution.
