Want to incorporate the colour of the year into your summer wardrobe? No bother

Jade Hayden


In case you haven’t looked out a window in the past four days, it’s now summer.

It’s warm outside, there’s a mere bit of breeze, and yeah alright, it lashed rain last night but it’s decent enough again today so you may as well spend the next 12 hours sitting outside before things get questionable again.

Summer has been a long time coming too – just last month we were wading through snow and dodging hail so it’s probably not unfair to say that we’re all drastically underprepared for what’s to come.

Especially wardrobe-wise.

Still though, when help is needed help will come and, thankfully, the guys over at Pantone picked a class colour of the year that’ll brighten up any summer collection.

Ultraviolet is the shade the lads picked for 2018’s colour of the year, and while the deep hues of the colour were perfect for those dreary winter nights, they’ll also go really well with anything you want to wear on the upcoming bright, summer evenings.

Here’s a few bits we’ve picked to get you started.

Estée Lauder’s creamy, matte lipstick – €31.95

Hey, we aren’t here long so you may as well make an entrance. This luxurious brand promises not to dry your lips out and to provide a long-lasting effect.

Korres ultraviolet nail varnish – €10.95

This nail varnish will update your look and won’t break the bank. Korres do a daring shade of purple which is perfect for sizzling summers and glamorous nights out.

Paco Rabanne ‘Ultraviolet’ eau de parfume – €69.95

There’s even an ultraviolet scent to round off your look with if you really want to dedicate yourself to this colour.

Nothing better than smelling like you’re on trend.
