Add some pep to your life with living coral

Pantone’s deliciously orange and pink-tinted hue, Living Coral, is sweeping across the fashion and design world.

Living Coral, this year’s Colour of the Year, is an animating and life-affirming shade of orange with a gorgeous golden undertone. Otherwise known by its official Pantone code 16-1546, Living Coral is vibrant, yet mellow at the same time, and couldn’t be more perfect for our tropical way of life.

Living Coral replaces last year’s Colour of the Year, Ultra Violet, a deep purple hue, which many would argue was a more difficult colour to incorporate into day-to-day lives.

According to Pantone, Living Coral, was chosen in reaction to the onslaught of digital technology in our daily lives. The colour represents the fusion of modern life and aims to enable connection and intimacy.

Here’s how to incorporate this gorgeous hue into your day-to-day life.

In fashion and accessories

Living Coral inspires experimentation and playful expression in both men’s and women’s street and runway styles. The warm shade suggests comfort and positivity in simple colour stories, but becomes more explorative and effervescent in patterns, textures, and even monochrome looks. An appealing accent shade, Living Coral provides a striking contrast across the colour spectrum.

In beauty

As a life-affirming hue that complements all skin tones, Living Coral brings natural colour to beauty in blush, eye, and lip. Uninhibited, playful looks are also emboldened by Living Coral, which, as the centre of a kaleidoscope of colour, encourages experimentation in beauty with palettes, textures, shimmers, and sheens.
