It looks like the new year is going to be brighter, more vibrant, and definitely more tropical, according to Pantone’s latest Colour of the Year.
Released by the company’s colour experts, this year’s shade is called “Living Coral” and it’s a playful blend of orange and blush tones with hints of sherbet — and yes, it’s as stunning as it sounds.
It’s described as an “animating and life-affirming coral hue, with a golden undertone,” or a beautiful hue that we seriously can’t wait to get our hands on.
“In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into daily life,” a press release from Pantone reads, “we are seeking authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy.”
Living Coral, according to Pantone, simulates human connection with its “nurturing” and “nourishing” qualities.
Not sure how to style Living Colour? We recommend mixing the colour with neon and black or more tropical colours.
Be sure to keep an eye out for what designers release items featuring Living Coral, so you can start rocking this hot new shade ASAP.
