Still aglow from the hot pink hue that dominated 2022, we're ready for Viva Magenta, Pantone's bolder and more sophisticated pick for 2023's Color of the Year!
Plumager®'s prints are easy to recolor for your latest collection, but it can be hard to know how to use such a bold hue. Using classic color theory, we explore some potential color schemes to get you started using Viva Magenta!
An analgogous color scheme uses colors directly next to each other on the color wheel for an easy to use and widely appealing design. This fun graphic floral print dress from Essentiel Antwerp is a perfect example of analogous colors.
Complementary colors are directly across from one another on the colorwheel, and make for a harmonious combination. Dolce and Gabbana uses complementary colors to striking effect in this quirky sushi print dress.
A monochromatic color scheme uses different tones of the same color. This bold floral print from Dries Van Noten sets monochromatic blooms against a more subdued cream background.
A square color scheme uses four colors evenly spaced around the color wheel, giving a wider range of colors for a more dynamic look. Never a brand to shy from bright color schemes, Farm Rio dives right into a square color scheme with this bold floral.
Experimenting with new color schemes is a great way to update any print! If you find yourself stuck, try a color palette generator like Adobe Color, Coolors, or Paletton. They can be a great resource to quickly generate new ideas and color stories.
