2019 arrived, and it's time to celebrate. We don't know about you, but the beginning of the year makes us feel a little more brave, a little more bold, and ready to make ourselves seen. Color can help you portray confidence, even if you're nervous about the exciting new steps you plan to take in the coming months.
Iva Jewell welcomes this pop of coral
Each year Pantone names a color of the year—an up-and-coming shade that both reflects and shapes design trends in fashion, home, and mood. They describe Living Coral as "an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge." The color pops, and we appreciate the feeling it invokes—one of hope, optimism, and energy, all things successful entrepreneurs keep in their back pockets for days when things feel overwhelming.
Why color matters
Color trends help shape the items you see on the shelves, from clothes to home accessories, but they do more than that for many individuals. Color gives you the opportunity to shape, in some ways, how others see you. Bold, beautiful shades let people know you aren't afraid of being seen. Even if you feel nervous on the inside, color can help others see you as confident—and they'll be excited to take a chance on you and what you're offering them.
Incorporating color into your wardrobe
We see the sea of neutrals people gravitate toward while dressing, and we understand. Keeping a "safe" palette for your closet makes it easy to coordinate clothes and stretch your wardrobe. After all, your co-workers notice when you wear a stunning blue blouse two days in a row. Still, color matters, and adding it to your closet can be as simple as clearing out some space on your accessories shelves.
The bold colors in our Iva Jewel pieces let you differentiate yourself, even when wearing the most neutral pieces. No one will focus on your crisp white blouse when you're carrying one of our Laptop Clutches—or take a sneak peak at some gorgeous Ankara bracelets. And if you already love color? Our pieces pop against jewel tones, too, adding interest and depth to your classic pieces.
Celebrate color this year—and celebrate you
No matter how you decide to incorporate more color into your life, give yourself permission to celebrate yourself through that choice. Find a color that speaks to you and gives you strength to move forward toward all those exciting goals you're getting ready to meet this year.
Do you pay attention to color trends or stick to what's worked for you in the past?
