The color of the year 2022

Choosing the primary color for your outfit may only look like a simple task, but it is not. And this is when the Color Of The Year comes into play.

The Primary Colors of 2022 is Very Peri

When in doubt, what to wear to the event, dinner party, date, or any social gathering, ask yourself, "What is the color that is dominating in fashion this year?" Let it be your guide and inspiration.

Officially, it is Very Peri

In 2022, the official color is Very Peri. Very Peri is a brand new color created by Pantone for the first time in the history of their Colour of the Year forecasts. According to the Pantone report, the Very Peri color is the "happiest and warmest of all the blue hues." This color inspires confidence and a daring curiosity.

By the way, in 2021, the Color Of The Year was bright yellow and gray. In 2020 it was blue, in 2019, it was coral, and in 2018, it was purple. The Color Of The Year changes every year.

Primary color vs. other colors

There is one primary color and one or two supporting colors in any outfit. So, if the primary color of your outfit is Very Peri, what would be your complementary colors?

It all depends on what image you want to project. Is it a natural balance, well-being, amusement and fun, or do you want to make a Very Peri color the show's star?
