Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year, Living Coral, symbolizes “our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits.” It’s a bright and loud hue that totally lives up to its name.
The color is pretty bright, and is understandably a little intimidating to style and wear. However, it’s flattering on all skin tones, and when done right, it’s the perfect color to go for to make your outfits pop.
Here are ways you can wear Living Coral to kick off the year:
If you want to slowly ease into this trend, you can do so by incorporating it into your accessories:
Wear pretty statement earrings like these made-to-order pairs from Winkz Creations:
Or this layered tassel necklace:
