New year, new color. And this year, according to Pantone — the authority on color — Living Coral is the color of 2019. This pinkish, reddish, orangey hue with golden undertones will be the inspiration for color palettes across fashion and lifestyle brands. If you’re looking for a pop of brightness than you are in luck for both your closet and your home. However, if you are wondering what to pair this popular color with, teal, turquoise, and pink are all complementary, but don’t limit yourself! There are many options in the color wheel that will work.
For an easy, lightweight, A-line dress that screams Miami weather and style, Cos Strappy Poplin Dress will be a piece you often repeat. The effortless, air design with concealed pockets is one of our top picks.
If you’re not ready to dress in full bloom, try adding a print that features the color creation like Alice + Olivia Kirby Ruffle Mini Dress that has coral throughout the floral and graphic design.
To add a hint of the hue via accessories, Dior Rose Dior Pré Catelan Ring in 18K yellow gold draws inspiration from Monsieur Dior's favorite flower rose, in coral. Or try the Hermes H Strie belt buckle in polished Porosus crocodile leather. And always a mainstay, Balenciaga’s City Classic handbag with removable and adjustable shoulder strap is the perfect everyday bag.
Looking to brighten up your home? The Mr. Impossible, designed by Kartell and Philippe Starck, boasts organic lines and appears to “hover” thanks to its four transparent legs with their circular hollow core. Some smaller ways to incorporate Living Coral into your home décor include Emilio Robba’s Orange Cymbidium Large Flower Bowl, a glass bowl filled with faux orange cymbidium orchids, green grass and the illusion of live orchids growing in water inside. Also, Hoem’s hexagon shaped Kaledio M serving tray will impress guests with its shape and color.
