It may only be January, but the most fashion-savvy among us are already on the hunt for the key trends and looks that will shape 2019. The Pantone Colour Institute, which annually predicts colours that serve as inspiration for fashion’s leading designers’ new collections, has already announced its 2019 Colour of the Year as Living Coral (more on that in a minute). But recently, it also released its full spectrum of key shades for the season ahead, having looked to the SS19 shows at New York and London last September to curate a collection of 16 colours that will be key for the coming season.
This season’s style palette looks set to include a beautiful balance of cool neutrals, paired with warm (and even hot) shades of red, pink and orange. As the colour of the year is a vibrant coral, the rest of the palette is awash with complimentary colours.
With 16 colours to choose from, it can be hard to decide where to begin with your new-season sartorial choices. We’ve taken the liberty of whittling down Pantone’s SS19 predictions to five key colours, each with a corresponding piece from the high street, so that you can kick off 2019 off in style.
Colour of the Year 2019: Pantone 16-1546 ‘Living Coral’
Pantone 15-1264 ‘Turmeric’
Pantone 12-0742 ‘Lemon Verbana’
Pantone 15-1619 ‘Pressed Rose’
Pantone 19-4150 ‘Princess Blue’
