While Pantone has dubbed Living Coral the color of 2019, we’re throwing our support behind another contender: orange. Whether it be of the sherbet variety (a close cousin of Pantone’s pick) or a more pumpkin-y hue, orange is definitely having a moment.
You can trace the renaissance back to the Spring 2018 shows when safety orange dominated the runways. Then the Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 offerings kept the trend alive, especially in neon form. And if you’re thinking the color’s popularity will wane in the new year, guess again. The recent Pre-Fall 2019 collections were an orange lovefest with a large portion featuring the vibrant color.
The street style crowd also has an orange crush. From preppy twinsets to prairie dresses and even quilted coats perfect for layering, the eye-catching hue will probably still be popular outside next month’s Fall 2019 shows. And adding a little orange is a great way to brighten up your winter wardrobe.
Orange can be a tricky shade to pull off so we rounded up outfit ideas from the runways and the streets to provide some colorful inspiration.
