Pantone’s Color of 2023 – Viva Magenta!

January 17, 2023

The Pantone Color Institute picks a color of the year at the beginning of every year and this year their pick is Viva Magenta!  Pantone describes this color as full of vim and vigor, animated, fearless, and full of life! I love it!


Magenta can have different tones. Viva Magenta is more red than some shades of magenta, which sometimes leans more into hot pink and purple territory. But whatever the twist, magenta is a fun, vibrant color and I say bring it on for 2023!



What do you think? Will you be adding any magenta to your closet this year?

Also on the blog lately, what I wore fora rainy day at the mall and a year in outfits!

I’m hoping for an outfit post for you on Thursday, but the weather is NOT collaborating this week in California!  Friends, I LOVE the rain, but this is getting crazy!

Fun & Fashion,

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is ME talking to YOU, other middle-aged women who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, including style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce.
