Millennial Pink is All Grown Up: 16 Ways to Wear Pantone’s 2019 Colour of the Year

With 2019 just around the corner, we’re more than ready for a fresh new start and what better way to mark the transition than Pantone’s new Colour of the Year? Last week, the colour magnates announced that Living Coral, a vibrant shade of orange-pink, will mark the transition into 2019 and we think the ideal shade for ushering in the new year.

Pantone said they picked the colour, a rot of grown-up millennial pink, because it spoke to our society’s “innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits” and even went so far as to call the energetic shade “life affirming.” It’s no doubt that 2018 was a bit of a doozy politics-wise, so these positive sentiments provide a balm for the year ahead.

If you wish to fully immerse yourself in Pantone’s newest shade, we’ve selected 16 coral items that will add a pop of colour — and hopefully a mood boost — to any look.
