Dress a la Ivana, Sarah, or Anne this 2022!
Pantone's color of the year Very Peri, AKA 17-3938, is slowly taking the internet by storm and we're letting it take over our closets as well. The new blurple shade is a dynamic periwinkle blue hue with a vivifying violet-red undertone that suggests personal inventiveness and daring imagination. Very Peri does not only set an optimistic vibe for the year but it also gives us something to start our 2022 wardrobe as well. Take out your notepads because we're looking to the most stylish Filipina celebrities for major style inspiration this year. From must-have accessories, on-trend silhouettes, to items you can easily style all year-round, take it from Anne Curtis, Ivana Alawi, Sarah Lahbati and more in the style guide down below.
Don't let the muted shade of Very Peri fool you. This cool color could spice up your accessories game when paired with the right kind of jewelry, fabric, or texture. The Amina Muaddi Gilda box bag will surely reign supreme this year with its micro but functional size, its subtle sheen, and its bejeweled bag handles. Take a look at how Maureen Wroblewitz styled her own Very Peri purse last year! For a groovy twist, Julia Barretto has got you covered with her bucket bags, sunglasses, and other on-trend accessories from The Juju Club. When it comes to layering your colorful high jewelry pieces, take cues from the style icon herself Heart Evangelista.
Daytime outfitting in Very Peri is easier than you think. Think of day dresses, scarves, skirts, and oversized shirts that you can wear all year long. The belted V-neck dress from Elisabetta Franchi fits and looks like a sweet Very Peri dream. Check out how Sarah Lahbati and Chie Filomeno styled this flattering shade in fitted ensembles. The technique to letting the Very Peri color stand out from your outfit is by pairing it with complementing colors like white or gold or with a subtle contrasting shade like a darker shade of purple, blue, or black.
Don't forget that you will also need nighttime looks that will slay this year. Dress up for a dinner for two, your birthday, or a special evening with the shade of Very Peri. If you take a closer look at the color of the year's blue and violet-red undertone, it looks universally flattering to all skin tones and is best worn together with pieces that glitter and sparkle for extra shine. See how this blurple shade looks on the likes of Lovi Poe, Janine Gutierrez, and Ivana Alawi! Amp your wardrobe with the double tear gold-tone crystal earrings from Roxanne Assoulin or the cult-favorite Mach & Mach double bow 110mm pumps for nights when you need an extra Very Peri.
Go big and bold even if you'll be spending most of your time in front of your screens this year. Working from home doesn't have to feel or look dull especially when there's the color of the year to instantly boost your mood. The tomboy blazer jacket from Off-White will surely make a positive visual impact during your online meetings. Check out how Camille Co styled her Very Peri trousers, Gab Gibbs and her Very Peri blouse, and Heart Evangelista's bowed Very Peri dress for more work-from-home/island inspiration.
Here's something you can add to your New Year's resolution: work out in Very Peri. Invest in activewear that could give you the support and the good mood you'll need whenever you stretch, run, play, or hike this year. Take the wraparound vest top and high-waisted leggings from Live The Process out for a spin or dress a la Anne Curtis and the Uy sisters in head-to-toe Recess. The key to a fun work or play session is to look cute while at it!
