Gentle, romantic, positive and stylish – it’s all about the most fashionable color of 2022 – a shade of periwinkle or purple Very Peri, as it is also called. Unlike its predecessors, this color was not chosen from an extensive color palette, but was developed artificially: this happened for the first time in the history of Pantone and has become a kind of symbol of innovation and global change taking place in the world.
The periwinkle appeared on the catwalk even before it was declared a trend, appearing in the collections of Dolce & Gabbana, Alberta Ferretti, Gucci, Marques’Almeida. Together with Bologny, we study how and with what fashion bloggers recommend wearing the current color of the year 2022.

Very Peri Combination Rules
One of the most winning options is the combination of periwinkle with different shades of blue, so a great solution would be to “make friends” a trendy sweater or cropped cardigan with regular jeans, as long as they are light.
Another good option is a combination of periwinkle with a related pink. Moreover, it can be either a delicate edible pink or a much brighter and more saturated shade (cyclamen, pink azalea, fuchsia).
Interestingly, the color of the periwinkle coexists well with various light shades of green, turning into yellow: ambrosia, pale lime, straw, citrus, pistachio. Try to dilute your look with accessories or shoes in a cheerful yellow-green hue, and it will sparkle with new colors.
A good solution for those who do not want to take risks would be a combination of periwinkles with basic colors: black and white. In this case, the contrast of hard, strong, strict black and airy, romantic Very Peri will look especially interesting.
And, of course, a combination of Very Peri with other shades of purple, as well as a total look, will be a win-win. In the latter case, you can choose a trouser suit in the current color or play with textures and volumes, combining several items of the same color, but from different fabrics and materials.
Who is Very Peri suitable for?
All women of fashion can introduce the current color of periwinkle into their wardrobe – there are no clear restrictions here. Despite the fact that this shade of purple is classified as cold, it can be safely used by girls of all color types, without fear that it will not suit your appearance or will turn pale. The dosage and location of the color in the image are important here.
For example, if you are a representative of the “bright spring” or “cold summer” type, then you can safely try on Very Peri in any dosage and in any way you like, because this color is shown to you.
But if you, for example, are a “warm autumn”, then you should not immediately abandon the color of the periwinkle – you can use it pointwise, for example, purchase a handbag or shoes in an actual shade. The main rule to remember when trying on a color not from your palette is to wear it away from your face.
As for age, the color of the periwinkle suits absolutely all categories, from a young maiden to mature ladies. Do not think that it is too frivolous for a category, say, 40+ or 50+: no, Very Peri can look elegant, noble and expensive if used correctly. Much depends on the texture of the fabric and style.
In addition, thanks to light notes and a unique combination of blue and purple, periwinkle can visibly refresh, add radiance to the skin, and have a visual lifting effect. Therefore, try, experiment, and you will definitely succeed in creating a relevant and winning image with the main color of 2022.
