Add a touch of Living Coral to your wardrobe for 2019

cog article banner

Pantone’s colour of the year for 2019 is Living Coral, a pinky-peachy hue with a golden undertone that’s cheerful and warm. Here are some ways to add it to your wardrobe in the new year.


  1. Coral plays nicely with navy, grey and olive green. Add a scarf, a necklace or a pair of tassel earrings (also right on trend) to your existing items in these neutral colours and you’ll instantly have a fresh look that’s cool and contemporary.


  1. Coral is ideal for floral patterns. Florals are big this year but choosing one which features the colour of the year will up your fashion game a notch. Top-to-toe floral in a dress works perfectly for summer, and as things cool down for autumn, add a floral blouse to a suit.


  1. Play with the shades of the colour. Coral can be bright or more muted so it can suit any colouring, mood or occasion. The more pastel tones are perfect for a casual look while a bright hue will make a bold statement.


  1. A coral coloured lipstick is a subtle way to add the key colour without having to go big or add items to your wardrobe. Ditto with a manicure in a coral shade.


  1. Take the idea literally and look for fabrics and accessories that feature coral as a motif in the correct colour, of course. A coral pattern has the feel of a floral but is slightly more sophisticated.


  1. For a look that’s very fashion-forward, try pairing your coral with a deep shade of scarlet. Think coral top and red skirt. For real fashion kudos, colour block the two colours and pair with accessories in the same shades.


  1. For a nautical-inspired look that’s great for sweltering summer days, pair coral pieces with crisp white.


  1. A variation on coral is rose gold, which has been trendy for some time. Add jewellery pieces, shoes and handbags in this hot metal to really up the ante.
