I know we just had two very pink recommendations on Thursday and Fridaybut: Pantone has just announced that The color of the year for 2023 will be magenta. So now is a good time to pick up some of the darker pink pieces still on sale from last season.

The one pictured CeCe top is one we’ve featured a lot before because it’s a great base for both work and play; select colors including this one are down to $48.

(There are plenty of lucky sizes for a few other pieces, all on sale – more CeCe tops and dresses, Sam Edelman coats, Dress the population dresses, and a few cute ones Nic & Zoe toppers.) If you’re looking for lipstick, I just got it this NYX that really doesn’t budge and is both bold and flattering (“Another Level”) – this Glossier lipstick in “Jam” is also very magenta on me, but much more of a buildable shade.

Readers, do you generally try to buy things that are the “color of the year” to make your wardrobe feel more trendy – or is it that you just can’t avoid the color in the stores since so many brands will use that color as a accent? (Last year’s color was lavender.) I always love pairing magenta with navy and gray, with accents like orange, red, or pastel blue—what are your favorite ways to wear magenta?
