The Pantone Colour Institute has announced their colour of 2019 is the gorgeous Living Coral (16-1546), but can we all wear this warm and energising colour - and what about using it in your wedding? We asked House of Colour's Gill Bushnell, who covers Northumberland, Tyne and Wear and Newcastle, how to wear Living Coral with style…
1.We associate coral with the fresh, warmth and sun-kissed coral seas of honeymoon destinations Australia, Indonesia and the Philippines – but the gorgeous warm hue that is Living Coral will not work for all skin tones; particularly those that suit cool colours. Some of us have warm pigment in our skin which is yellow-based, while others have cool pigment which is blue-based. When you wear the right tones for your skin you will look brighter, fresher and younger. Coral is a warm yellow based pink and so will suit those with warm skin tones much better than those with cool.
2. Coral is also fantastic in a lipstick, blusher and on nails for those with warm colour tones. Just make sure you don't go too orange, which can look exciting on some people but not on everyone.
3. Bring Living Coral to the wedding table with gorgeous coral roses or coral charm peonies for the table centrepiece, or chair sashes and napkins.
4. In comparison's to last year's Pantone colour of the year, the bold and empowering ultra-violet, coral is an effortless, mellow colour which could work beautifully for members of the wedding party. Why? It doesn't dominate, making it the perfect hue to accentuate other colours. Coral teams well with all warm neutrals including the current 1970s inspired browns, the Dulux colour of the year, Spiced Honey, greys, coffee, beiges, khaki or dark olive for a rich and expensive look.
5. If you do want to wear something of sartorial style in Living Coral for your honeymoon, consider head to toe in a gorgeous maxi dress or a dash of Living Coral as a blouse, swimsuit or as summer trousers. 6. As a pop of colour, coral looks gorgeous as a scarf, belt, shoes or handbag, particularly against a backdrop of a warm navy or elegant dove grey. The shops will be full of coral tones this spring and summer time so enjoy!
