The new color has created a stir. Love it or hate it, the announcement of Viva Magenta as Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2023 provided a bountiful amount of gift ideas for the holiday season. Shop with 2023 with the Magentaverse on your mind. Fill your wardrobe with hints of this vibrant color and select a few staples from the recommendations below that are already available and ready for gifting to yourself or loved ones.

Inspo #1: Summer Beach

Walk the summer shores in these hues of Viva Magenta, with styles combining fuchsia and red. The Flabelus – Briony by Wolf & Badger can take you into Spring 2023, tapping into the resurgence of flats. With a pop of color, these flats give a super beachy vibe with the natural raffia and fuchsia piping. Choosing red over fuchsia is a sweet dilemma. Pairing this Beach Riot two-piece swimsuit with Lavani Jewels is a natural fit to bring a sharp triple-down shape into the mix with these earrings.

Toss out a Stone Island embroidered beach towel to sunbathe, bring along your Giuseppe Zanotti flat thong sandals, and cover up with elasticated-waist mini shorts with ruched detailing by Red Valentino. Add your favorite fresh lip balm by Suqqu and sunscreen to make a splash with sunkissed hair and a summer in the Magentaverse.

The color guides below provide a unique look at color combinations that span the hues surrounding the Pantone Color of the Year for 2023, Viva Magenta. From stark to subtle, the color guides sound an alarm, a sort of permission to style your looks from rouge to pink with a flare for the bold.

Inspo #2: Dresses & Beauty

The Saloni Mini Dress brings in a frilled high neck for drama, long sleeves, and an all-over graphic print with ruffled cuffs. Accessorize this look by pairing it with one of the shoe selections below. You may also want to add a bright nail color like Les Mains Hermès nail polish and a poppy lip color like the Gucci Glow & Care Shine Lipstick available at Sephora.

Inspo #3: Shoes

Your 2023 style is beginning to have a voice. Closed or open-toe shoes? Try to add a range of shoe selections that could become signature pieces for your 2023 style. The Giuseppe Zanotti Morgana velvet ankle boots are your pathway to a statement chunky heel. Go toe-to-toe with the Furla logo-embossed slip-on slides, or find a more casual look with the Le Sur Friulana Loafer.

Inspo #4: Home Interiors

The Magentaverse is just taking shape. You can use the Pantone Color of the Year 2023 inspiration to bring Viva Magenta inside your home. Haute House Lorelei Chaise is an elegant 2023 home upgrade, handcrafted with a scooped back and roll-style arm. For a casual switch of pillows, try out the conversation starters by Bay Isle Home. Bring a pop of color to your space with the Napoleon Stripe Indoor/Outdoor Cotton Blend Lumbar Pillow, a rustic accent pillow.

Indoor spaces can also feel worn or run down. A new rug like the Isabelline One-of-a-Kind Ethanpaul Hand-Knotted 1970s Runner Area Ruge is nice eye candy if your home needs a focal point.

Inspo #5: Coats

The JC De Castelbajac Pre-Owned Reversible Oversized Coat is one that turns heads. The color contrast is stark and stunning. Other options include the Moncler Pink Maire Hooded Puffer Jacket with detachable hood, the REMAIN Birger Christensen Pyrene Leather Coat, the P.A.R.O.S.H. Velvet Single-Breasted Button Blazer with classic lapels, the Apparis Faux-Fur Hooded Coat with concealed front fastening and classic hood, and the Liu Jo Coat.

Inspo #6: Tops

While the Pantone Color of the Year 2023 is a showstopper, removing its potency with other elements can showcase your style even more. Gifting yourself one or more of these tops can give you variety within your wardrobe while entertaining Viva Magenta through your style evolution in 2023.

Style variations are abundant from the Tach Camilla Blouse showcasing embroidered detailing to the Versace Jeans Couture body suit with logo application and stretch design to the Simonetta Buttoned Crew Neck Cardigan. Design elements shine in the Diane Von Furstenberg Zander printed knit top; the Alberta Ferretti Pick your mood cuddle power jumper, the NARRO Relaxed Fit Cotton Blend Blouse, and the Valentino Bow-detailed Cutout Wool Sweater.

The Moschino Sleeveless Turtleneck is a shag knit nylon-based sweater which harkens back to the 60s/70s. In contrast, the MSGM Hooded Dress is an oversized top with a drawstring hood, ribbed cuffs, and hem.

Inspo #7: Bottoms

Free yourself in Viva Magenta and pleats with the Alo Yoga Grand Slam Tennis Skirt and the LAAGAM Hailey Pant. Show out courtside in this high-waisted micro-pleated tennis skirt with side pockets by Alo Yoga or in high-waisted pleated pants by LAAGAM. Gifting in Pantone may include the ultra-chic Tom Form Velvet Trouser, Alo Yoga 7/8 High-Waist Airlift Legging, Desigual Long Trousers, or the Free People Annalise Velvet Mini Skirt.
