Pantone has proclaimed 2019 the year of “living coral,” described by the color experts as “an animated, life-affirming shade of orange, with golden undertones.” To help you bring the vibrant, optimistic shade into your wardrobe, here are a few easy-to-copy looks from your friends at Fashion Fabrics Club.
Starting with an accessory is an easy and “safe” way to try out the trend. Take one of your go-to looks, say a striped dress or T-shirt and jeans, and toss on a light, coral-colored gauze scarf for a bright hit of color.
Though the color is quite striking and dramatic, it can still go to a romantic place when done up in the right pieces. Here, the coral chiffon skirt feels more feminine than fierce, plus the addition of the lace top makes things incredibly elegant (which can be a hard balance to strike when donning such a vibrant shade).
You can even bring the year’s color into your office look—it’s all about picking the right pieces and keeping things polished, like this little linen blazer. The neutral tone-on-tone outfit is the perfect foundation for the coral blazer, letting the bright color shine as the look’s focal point without being too bold.
Having a coral sweater in the rotation makes it easy to throw together a chic weekend ensemble. Wear it just as you would a neutral sweater: with jeans, skirts, under vests, over a crisp button up—the options are nearly endless.
