Very Peri: Color of the Year

Earlier this month, Pantone announced its 2022 Color of the Year: Very Peri, an entirely new color that can be described as a periwinkle blue hue with a violet red undertone.

Meant to be symbolic of transition and new possibilities, Pantone said Very Peri is the “happiest and warmest of all the blue hues.” In a press release, the vice president of the Pantone Color Institute, Laurie Pressman, added: “The Pantone Color of the Year reflects what is taking place in our global culture, expressing what people are looking for that colour can hope to answer.”

Since Pantone just released this new color, you may not be able to find apparel in the exact shade just yet. That said, you can purchase clothing available in colors reminiscent of Very Peri right here at JudyP Apparel. Below, we round up a handful of our pieces in lavender hues.


Emily – 3/4 Sleeve A-line Dress in Periwinkle 

A flirty and versatile staple, a v-neckline, and patch pockets (our favorite!) give this piece feminine modernity, while comfortable ¾ sleeves bump up the look a notch. A must-have dress? We think so.


Ella – Tank Top in Ultra Violet

This chic single-layer tank is a great alternative to all those sausage-casing tanks that are uncomfortable and less-than-attractive on the body. What’s more, it actually has room through the midsection, so it does not show every lump and bump. 


V-Neck ¾ Sleeve Tunic in Periwinkle

A double-front, V-neck 3/4 sleeve tunic, this top has an a-line shape without looking like a tent, plus a 29″ length that covers what needs to be covered without looking like a dress. The 4″ side slits make it comfortable to move around in, and the sleeves are flattering as they fall right between the elbow and the wrist. Just perfect.
