The Pantone Color of the Year is fashion’s very own trend forecast. For 2019, the chosen color is “living coral,” a vibrant shade that elicits electric vibes of confidence and optimism. Here, we have all the ways to wear the bright hue, from head-to-toe.



Striped Mikado Full Skirt, Lela Rose, $1,090,

This Lela Rose piece charters in modernity with its radiant color, while giving off vintage vibes reminiscent of 1950s-esque circle skirts. Its high rise is perfect for pairing with a cropped top of a similar striped design, or one of a muted, solid tone.



2.55 Handbag, Chanel, $4,200,

The color of the year isn’t reserved just for clothing. Chanel never disappoints in delivering the current trends, and this coral handbag is no exception. Its signature quilted pattern is simple and complementary of its loud hue and gold-tone metal.



Seraphina Dress, Mara Hoffman, $550,

Slips top the trend reports for the spring, which makes this Mara Hoffman dress not just a want, but a need. The drop waist is an understated detail, and perfectly suits the low v-neckline.
