I am in love with Pantone’s 2019 Color of the year, living coral. This color is going to rock some stylish wardrobe’s this year. This feminine and vibrant tone is perfect for fashion and can be paired up in so many ways.

The Pantone Color Institute is responsible for picking out the color what this annual color will be. I’m not quite sure how they got to be in charge, but they did good this year.For a tid bit of history, Pantone was founded in 1963 by Lawrence Herbert. He came up with a system for matching, communicating and identifying colors for textile and print industries. Today, his company is known for coming up with color predictions that we see each year. According to his studies, color influences our emotions, physical reactions and thoughts. Well, I don’t know anything about all of that but I am excited that living coral made it to the top. Love it or hate it, there are ways to make this pretty hue work.

The 2019 Color of the Year Can Work With Any Skin Tone

Whether your skin under tone is cool or warm, the mix of hues in living coral will work for both. This color has a pinkish-orange hue. If you’re warm, go with a more orange-based shade of coral. If you’re cool, go with a pink shade.

How to Wear Living Coral

There are several ways to incorporate this color into your existing makeup and wardrobe. If you’re not sure and want to just test the waters with this vivacious coral, focus on beauty products and accessories such as jewelry, handbags and shoes.
