Ageless Style is a monthly style challenge and link up for women "over a certain age". Each month we pick a different theme and style an outfit based on that theme. This month's theme is "Pantone's Color of the Year: "Very Peri" and was picked by Daenel
Every year the Pantone Color Institute picks a "Color of the Year". The Pantone Color Institute is the business unit within Pantone that "highlights the top seasonal runway colors, selects the Pantone Color of the Year, forecasts global color trends, and advises companies on color for product and brand visual identity."(click on the links "Photo Credit" to read more about Pantone). This year Pantone picked the color "Very Peri" or "Periwinkle".
This is Pantone's description of the color "Very Peri":
Even though Pantone has picked this color as the "Color of the Year", I actually had a really hard time finding anything in new in this color, so I decided to show a couple of old outfits .
First up is a lighter periwinkle. This is a soft, boxy jersey knit top from Stitch Fix. Dark Blue and White are my favorite colors to pair with Periwinkle.
And for a current winter look, I am showing how you can wear periwinkle as an accent color with jewelry.

I had a really hard time in finding anything periwinkle too! I'm betting as the year progresses it will start cropping up everywhere. You have some really pretty looks here; I love that jewelry set.ReplyDelete
I think most of us did ha ha. I just finished looking at everyone's posts and I think a lot of us had the same issue...I saw lots of different shades of purple or blue but only a couple of true "periwinkle" shades. I wonder if we should have saved this challenge for spring when more options were available in this color. Oh well, at least we introduced our readers to the color of the year! Thanks so much!Delete
I love that last sweater! That color is gorgeous! I think that there are so many shades of periwinkle that it all works out!ReplyDelete
thank you! Yes, I wanted a more "winterized" version of periwinkle but I think it's mostly a spring shade and everything I had that was more winter appropriate was more in the purple family.Delete
I have always loved the color "periwinkle." I'm delighted to see the "very peri" color trend this year. It looks good on everyone. Thanks for hosting the link-up.ReplyDelete
Me too. It's always been one of my favorite colors. Perhaps that is why I already owned some older pieces of items in that color. Thanks so much.Delete
They are all beautiful looks Amy! And loving how you accessorized with the pretty jewelry! I do love this year's Pantone color!ReplyDelete
Thanks Ellie! I love the color too, I only hope I see more of it in the stores this spring.Delete
I just love how you have many items that fit the bill for periwinkle Amy. It's definitely a wonderful color yet it's not easy to describe, is it? Anytime I say it to someone, they all give me a blank stare, haha.ReplyDelete
thanks Jodie, Yes, it's a difficult color to identify. Is it a blue? Is it a lilac? No, it's a combination of both. ha ha!Delete
My cardigan was "periwinkle" but I think it was more light blue. The dress I mentioned in my blog was probably closer to the Very Peri. I wish I'd thought to use that instead. But, I do love the outfit I came up with!ReplyDelete
Oh, but you were wearing the dress in the post so what difference did it make? Your outfit was so incredible, very boho chic!Delete
Such a rich and regal shade yet very approachable and real.ReplyDelete
Yes, that's a good description!Delete
I am impressed how many shades of this color family you actually have. I agree that it always takes a while to get items into the stores. I even looked a little bit and saw nothing locally yet in our stores.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much.Delete
Looking so beautiful ��ReplyDelete
Amy, periwinkle is a beautifully unique color. I have a few shirts and sweaters that would be a match and I always wear them towards spring because they seem more suited for that season.ReplyDelete
Yes it is a beautiful color. And I like to wear it in the spring too.Delete
Amy, I enjoy a fashion post! Your color choice of soft periwinkle is a color I can wear. This color looks so pretty on you, and I like the bracelet with the dark color.ReplyDelete
Thank you. It seems a lot of people look good in this color.Delete
We are seeing periwinkle everywhere!! And not just in women's clothing. I have seen it in girl's and men's!! It has become a game we play when we are window shopping...spotting the peri.ReplyDelete
You have several pretty peri pieces. Your first top reminds me a little of the one I featured. You wear the color well. And what pretty accessories. Bracelets are becoming my favorite jewelry.
Well, congratulations because you're the only one in our group who is seeing it everywhere. Every one else had a hard time and several didn't even wear periwinkle but ended up with blue or lilac. But it is a beautiful color, so I hope to see more of it. Maybe the "supply chain" is to blame for not seeing it in the stores yet. Thanks so much!Delete
Great outfits! I don't know which one i like the most... maybe second ;)ReplyDelete
Have a great day!
It is such a beautiful color isn't it! I have almost the same jumper! Fabulous!ReplyDelete
Yes it is. One of my favs. Thanks Nancy.Delete
Lovely very peri outifts.ReplyDelete
You have some great peri peri outfits! I love the bracelets! You are set for this year!ReplyDelete
Periwinkle is such a gorgeous color! Love all of these outfits you've put together! Your bracelets are so pretty!ReplyDelete

It really is! Thanks so much!Delete
Ooo such a beautiful color! Glad it's the color of the year. All of your outfits are beautiful but I especially love the first one.ReplyDelete

Yes, I was so excited to see that they picked this color. Thanks so much .Delete
I love periwinkle! Our bedroom wall in Las Vegas was periwinkle. These are all great outfits, Amy! I love the bracelet you wore with dark periwinkle sweater.ReplyDelete
It is such a pretty color. Thanks Michelle.Delete
I agree this will be a nice colour for spring! I find purples hard to get in stores so it's not a colour you usually see a lot of! Hopefully there is more choice in a few months :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup! Hope that you are having a great weekend :) Another hot one here!
Away From The Blue
It is a pretty color, but yes, so hard to find! Hopefully there will be more choices in spring.Delete
