LIVING CORAL

 

Every year, Pantone announces a color of the year to 'provide strategic direction for the world of trend and design’. For 2019, Living Coral (or to be specific, 16-1546) has been revealed as the one to watch. According to the Pantone website, it's ‘an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge’. That's all very well and good, but I find the wishy-washy hue a little difficult to style. For me, the mellow color really needs to be mixed in a pattern or with some edgy pieces to bring it to life on the streets of New York. As you all know, I don’t wear much color in the office so the above is my attempt to breathe some fresh air into the workplace with this cosy coral knit. My other top items are linked below, and I love the idea of incorporating it into your make up.
