With the advent of 2019, it’s time to embrace Pantone’s new colour for the year: Living Coral. The vibrant hue is a lively orange with golden undertones, which according to Pantone reflects the warmth, nourishment and shelter of coral reefs to sea life.
When it comes to fashion, coral has long been one of the most adored shades to wear. And what better a way to make a colour pop than with some decadent jewellery! Compliment the shade by playing around with its orange undertones — yellow-gold and rose-gold pieces are your best bet. Although, if your coral look is a contemporary one, oxidised silver jewellery will compliment it beautifully as long as it’s the sole focal point.
If you’re all about sprucing things up, feel free to colour-block the hue with contrasting makeup — think petrol blue eyeliner or a wash of teal green eyeshadow. The same applies to jewellery as well; achieve the alluring effect by colour-blocking with jewels that have turquoise stones or coloured crystals. Whatever the choice of jewellery, just be sure to keep your accessories to a bare minimum and let the coral shine through.
