The Results Are In & Winter’s ‘It’ Color Is Chili Pepper

Each and every season, a new “it” color emerges from the ROYGBIV fray. Once upon a time, it was millennial pink and last fall, it was marigold. This winter’s hottest color, however, is as bold as it is wearable. It’s festive and cheery, but not overly holiday-ish. It’s a great way to impress at your company party or brighten up your winter wardrobe. Introducing: Chili pepper red, which, BTW, Pantone calls a spicy hue that adds drama and stimulates the senses. Here, eight ways you can incorporate winter’s “it” color into your wardrobe.
