Blogger Erika Boldrin in her preferred pair of purple heels during London Fashion Week - Sept 18, 2017

We’re calling this one now, with the idea that it’s about to blow up thanks to Pantone.

Today, the color authority named Ultra Violet the Color of 2018. Perhaps the recent purple boot craze played a part in the decision-making process this year?

Whether pointy stilettos or sock boots from Balenciaga, footwear in a particularly popping shade of amethyst has definitely been trending.

In this sense, fashion’s most savvy were one step ahead of Pantone. Blogger Erika Boldrin loves the regal look and has worked a favorite pair of Mango boots into multiple Fashion Week ensembles, all of which have caused waves.

And just yesterday, Rita Ora presciently stepped out in New York City wearing a gorgeous pair of Gianvito Rossi’s Katie boots in the luscious shade. A sharp pair of Matrix-style sunglasses and plaid patterns rounded out her mod ensemble.

Officially approved by both Pantone and Rita, it goes without saying that we can expect to see more purple in the near future. — jas
