So this year’s hottest colour according to Pantone (and who knows better than Pantone?) is ‘Living Coral’. Described by the colour gods as an “animating and life-affirming coral with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge”, PANTONE 16-1546 can bring your wardrobe right up to date.
It’s been the colour of choice in fashion, beauty, interiors and other areas of design. And for those who are serious about trends, it’s now time to venture into the world of accessories.
Sunglasses can be the perfect accent for any wardrobe. If you’re looking for a quick and instant style update, invest in some coral coloured shades and inject a bit of fun into your everyday look. Not quite orange, not quite pink, and not quite peach, ‘Living Coral’ is a bright, effervescent hue that balances femininity to get you noticed.
Inspired by natural surroundings, and the elusiveness of the purest corals found in the sea, PANTONE 16-1546 is a totally instagrammable trend. If you want to inject a fun burst of life into your SS19 accessories collection, here are the sunglasses you have to own.
