Every year, the Pantone Color Institute chooses the main shade that will become fundamental in fashion trends. In 2019, it became a color called living coral, which has a slight golden sheen. This is not the easiest color, and not everyone loves it, but those who want to keep up with fashion should figure out how to choose the right shade for themselves and what it is best to combine it with. Coral, the main color according to Panton, was popular earlier, in the distant 50s, and this year it has again gained wide popularity.
Who suits coral?
