Every twelve months, the experts over at Pantone choose their color of the year. And, every year, fashionistas look for bold and creative ways to include it in their outfits.
The Pantone Color of the Year for 2019 is Living Coral. They describe it as “An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.”
The color certainly lives up to its reputation. With last year’s color of the year, Ultra Violet, Pantone kept things on the dark side. Now it’s time to try something a little lighter – just in time for the warmer weather.
To truly show off the Pantone Select Box of StyleColor of the Year in 2019, we’ve put together a few Coral fashion looks to help get you inspired. When you take these ideas and add your style twist, you’ll achieve a classic, glamorous look – this time in the color of the year.
Living Coral is the type of low-key hue that can add character to business casual outfits without calling too much attention to itself. That’s why you might want to start small when it comes to experimenting with this Coral fashion in your wardrobe.
You can begin to incorporate the Color of the Year into your wardrobe by simply swapping your normal blazer or cardigan for one in Living Coral. Paired with the Jules Kae Vegan Leather Tote (available with the Select Box of Style), this can help you build a stylish and feminine outfit for work with pieces you already own.
The adventurous mini hemline is back in style this year. That makes a Living Coral mini hemline dress a smart choice for going out. Whichever material or pattern most appeals to you should be the one you opt for. Then, select a style that’s right for the activity of the night. Going dancing? Perhaps a sleeveless piece of coral fashion with ruffle details that move with you. Dinner with the girls? You could try a mock neck dress with accentuated shoulders.
Looking for further inspiration? We love the Box of Style’s Ettika Chloe Tassel Necklace because its vibrance will balance the warmth of your coral fashion look. The result is just the right mixture of class, elegance, and confidence. Depending on the occasion, you can further enhance the effect with the Polished Glamour add-on set.
Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2019 looks just as good on garments as on accessories. A subtle splash of color from these earrings can brighten up any going-out look. Pair them with your favorite jeans for a chic brunch look or with a leather jacket for a sleek evening look. These versatile pieces in the Color of the Year are the perfect complement to your classic look.
Complete your coral fashion look with the Eddie Borgo Soho Watch. This rose-gold accessory strikes the right balance of bold and delicate, making a subtle statement that pairs perfectly with the Color of the Year. Also, we’re loving the Dewy Skin Set add-on to get our skin to match the warmth and subtle glow this color offers.
Using Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2019 as inspiration for outfits that emphasize your personal style is an easy way to be chic but not trendy. Luckily, Living Coral is a versatile hue. These ideas will help you tap into your creative style impulses when putting together outfits. The more you play with coral fashion, the more you’ll learn exactly how you want to integrate the Color of the Year into your wardrobe this year.
