The best ways to wear the coral trend. It’s one of the biggest colours of 2019. Coral or ‘Living Coral’ – Pantone’s colour of the year 2019 has been dominating fashion trends this year. According to Pantone: “Symbolising our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression.”
But you don’t just have to stick with Living Coral. You can choose any shade.
It is that one hue that has it all: a slight shade of orange and a tint of pink.
While coral can be playful and optimistic, it may not be a shade you currently have in your wardrobe or you may not know how to make it part of your personal style.
Here are some tips on how to incorporate coral into your life.
Feeling bold? Try to incorporate bold coral into your wardrobe to turn heads. It can be dressed down with a nice pair of jeans or sneakers. Or dress up with a mini dress with black heels.
If bold coral clothes are a bit intimidating, try using coral in your makeup routine. With moderation, coral can highlight the face beautifully and give a little pop of colour into your everyday routine.
A softer coral shade will make a statement without causing too much attention. This shade can be paired with simple jeans or with a basic fashion item such as a white top. Or switch it up and pair a white top with some coral trousers.
These coral slim-leg trousers not only look fresh but are comfortable too. Made with hemp fabric, they have a slim fit shape which is flattering on pretty much anyone.
