Pantone’s ‘Living color’ is the hot shade for 2019, putting the spotlight on coral. A warm, natural and solid shade, coral is a vibrant, yet mellow, colour choice.
Life-affirming and optimistic, coral also conjures up a comforting oasis of calm. Just as the coral reef sustains and shelters sea life, coral’s uplifting shade promises to perk up your wardrobe.
Suiting all skin tones, coral can still seem a tricky colour to style. Break it up with crisp, pale blues such as Flambe’s oversized shirt. Add a splash to a white and camel ensemble for a tonal accent, or liven up black with a pop of coral à la Amir Hossein’s satin bomber jacket. Hop on over to Fashtory to tap in to the trend. While we bask in coral’s warm peach tones, we must also remember to respect it. Climate change is bleaching our coral reef, rendering rich coral orange in danger of becoming a distant memory. Treasure it.
