2017 is quickly drawing to a close, and as we prepare for a new year of dance competitions, music, social media, and all of our other favorite things, Pantone is here to give the upcoming year its defining color - Ultra Violet. The color, Pantone says, is "complex and contemplative"  and "suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now."

In case you didn't know, Pantone has chosen a color to represent each year since 2000. The colors represent not only upcoming trends in fashion and design but also the year's general mood. The mood they are trying to convey with this year's color is "hope."

It's time to find all of your favorite purple accessories and maybe give amethyst hair another try! However you are celebrating Pantone's latest Color of the Year, we hope it is with excitement for what Ultra Violet 2018 will bring!
