Pantone Color of The Year: Living Coral

This year’s hue was selected for being “animating and life-affirming,” which “energizes with a softer edge.” It’s the color of corals when they thrive in a healthy marine ecosystem. When worn, it’s universally flattering, instantly imparting a golden warmth to the complexion.

Are you red-dy?: Red and scarves

Red is the color of love and romance. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, try a feminine scarlet ensemble with a headscarf knot or worn around the neck as a bow that’s equal parts girlish and polished, classic, and bold. We suggest a luxurious material like silk a la style icon Audrey Hepburn.

Walking on sunshine: Marigold and ruffles

Consider marigold as the magenta of spring/summer 2019. Alternatively dubbed Gen Z yellow (for those born between the 1990s and 2000s), steer clear of Big Bird or Pikachu associations by keeping the silhouette ladylike and its fabrications rich, like chunky knits and velvet.

Orange you glad: Burnt orange and the buttoned dress

Burnt orange makes a statement without being as loud as red, as soft as coral, or as graphic as neon. It lends warmth and dresses up the easy-breezy on-trend Parisienne buttoned dress.

Skin is in: Safari prints and Bermuda shorts

Show off your wild side with luxurious snakeskin. Paired with neutral standbys of beige, grey, and cream, it adds visual texture to a monochromatic look.

Supersize me: Oversized suit and shades of blue

For those determined to advance their career in the new year, reconsider the suit borrowed from the boys. It is oversized for ease while tailored to show you mean business with dresscode-friendly cobalt, diplomatic navy’s youthful counterpart.

High visibility: Brights with near-neutrals

When weather forecasts report scattered rains, neons can keep you cheery and dry. Ensure maximalist impact with a neon infusion to a utilitarian look that’s conspicuous even in low-visibility weather.
