The color of the year 2021

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 Primary Colors of 2021 is Yellow and Gray.

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.

Officially, it is Yellow and Gray.

In 2021, we have two official colors of the year - bright yellow and gray. The yellow color is, in general, the color of communicators. It is also a color of happiness, optimism, and cheerfulness. The gray is a cool, neutral, and balanced color.

By the way, in 2020 the Color Of The Year was blue, in 2019 it was coral, in 2018 it was purple, in 2017 it was green.

Primary color vs. other colors

In any outfit, there is one primary color and one or two supporting colors. So, if the main color of your outfit is gray, use yellow as a supporting color of your outfit and vice versa.
