The color of the year 2019

Choosing the primary color for your outfit may only look like a simple task, but it is not. And this is when the Color Of The Year comes into play.

The Manin Color of the Year 2019 is Red.

When in doubt what to wear to the event, dinner party, date, or any social gathering, ask yourself, “What is the color that is dominating in fashion this year?” Let it be your guide and inspiration.

The art & science of colors

For those who may not know, The Pantone Color Institute in the U.S. forecasts the new color trends for men’s and women’s fashion. They also announce the Color Of The Year. This color is not a random number. It is part of their fashion trends report. There are an art and science behind fashion colors.

Officially, it is living coral

In 2019, the Color Of The Year is, basically, living coral with many shades of what I would call - red. And I already love it! Why? Because people always remember the girl in red!

(By the way, in 2018 the Color Of The Year was purple, in 2017 it was green, and in 2016 - dust blue).

Main color vs. other colors

In any outfit, there is one main color and supporting colors. If the main color of your outfit is red, then the supporting colors (your shoes, bags, sweaters, hats) could be black, gold, leopard prints, or, maybe, pink. If you choose bright coral as your primary color, it will look good with tan, beige, gray, or, perhaps, white.

Red and black

Beach attire

Don't know what color of bathing suit to buy? Look for something with the elements of red or coral. Or bring with you a bright red towel to the beach. People will notice you.

Let's look at how fashion designers incorporate red in their designs for 2019.
