Pantone has announced Very Peri as its 2022 Color of the Year. And yes, it’s basically a more purple periwinkle from the jumbo Crayola box (assuming your mom didn’t keep buying you RoseArt, UGH).

Pantone is getting very “the future is bright” with its color choice for 2022, and honestly, we’re here for it after two dumpster fire years.

According to Pantone, Very Peri combines the feels of merging our digital and physical lives (hey-o WFH life) as a joyful, yet metaverse-age hue.

But is it periwinkle purple? Is it blue? Very Peri is a weird, modern, and magical shade. And we’ll gladly accept a color fit for a futuristic unicorn, because we’re all hoping 2022 is our unicorn year.

Pantone’s color of the year is basically the trend-setter for everything from paint colors to clothes (psst you’re looking for PANTONE 17-3938 in color lingo). And that includes 2022 fitness and wellness trends.

Here are some of our favorite health and wellness products inspired by Very Peri.
