For 20 years, Pantone’s Colors of the Year has not only dominated fashion but also influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including home furnishings and industrial design. While it was ultraviolet that ruled the fashion scene in 2018, it is Living Coral that is coveted as Pantone Color Of The Year 2019.
Wondering what shade it actually is? It is nothing but a life-affirming shade of orange with a golden undertone. The best part about coral is that it works best both in the day as well as night time. And both men and women can easily start by incorporating small coral elements and accessories into their outfits.
Here are some of the styling ways to incorporate Pantone color of the year in your OOTD:
Start with little bits like a pop of coral in handbag, hairbands or footwear. Think a coral belt or clutch with an all-white attire instead of going overboard with the color.
Make your wardrobe spring and summer ready with flowy and light dresses and tops in printed pure crepe, shimmer lycra and French lace in the shade.
Coral works well with wedding ensembles for brides as well as for wedding attendees. This color can work wonder in festive fabrics like tulle, brocade and chanderi. Think coral lehenga with exquisite gold jewellery and you are done.
Coral works wonders in handwoven fabrics too. Men can sport a coral sherwani or Nehru jacket for wedding functions while a coral tie and pocket square would look best against a grey, slate or pewter suit for formal occasions.
