As an internationally recognized authority for the development and research of color, Pantone Color Institute has been designating a color every year since 2000 to express the global spirit that was happening that year. According to references from various field, Pantone selects an annual representative color as the indicator.
After the Ultra Violet color in 2018, the authority finally announced 2019 annual representative color, Living Coral.
Of course, you can call it coral orange. In the huge Pantone library, the representative color number of Living Coral is 16-1546.
According to the official statement, the reason for choosing this color as the representative color of the year is because this lively and positive coral color with a golden inner brings a sense of vitality to people with a softer feeling.
Today, our daily lives are filled with digital technology and social media, so people tend to pursue a sense of connection and closeness. Coral orange can reflect people's inner pursuit of optimism and joy, as well as the playful interest that you want to express. To put it simply, this seemingly eye-catching, vivid color can really give people a sense of pleasure, and at the same time, it is more suitable for today’s social atmosphere of popular mourning culture.
However, these explanations seem to be somewhat hollow for us. If we return to the color itself, it is not difficult to find that the coral orange is a kind of bright pink orange, which is based on gold and reveals a hint of pink. In terms of color matching, Pantone also gave some professional advice. Because the coral orange itself is already very bright in visual effects, so there are more places to pay attention to in color matching.
When put it specifically on the clothing, it is undeniable that the orange-red system that similar to coral orange has actually appeared in the latest season of many major brands’ shows. According to Pantone's fashion trends report released in the spring and summer of 2019, the color will undoubtedly become the mainstream in the next season.

However, many people who are sensitive to color must have already felt that although the color of coral orange is very eye-catching in terms of visual effects, it is often not so simple to wear in such a color actually. It tends to have a higher requirement of skin color. Generally speaking, it will enlarge your skin tone. So if you are dark or yellowish skin, this color seems not suit you well or else you will look blacker.
If you are facing the same problem, the solution is very simple. You can also wear in this popular color just with a little trick. Don't wear in the cloth that has a large area of this color. You can match it with simple accessories, such as hats, scarves, bags that are all good choices.
In addition, the minefield to be avoided is that the color of the whole body should not be too much and too complicated. Try not to stack all kinds of elements together that gives people a feeling of being too cumbersome. Match with red and pink colors belonging to the transitional color system to form a gradation of the same color system appropriately, or embellish the transition with black, white, gray and other neutral colors, the effect may be much better.
