Living Coral bursts with vibrant warmth for spring 2019 fashion. Named the color of the year by the Pantome Color Institute who forecasts color trends, Living Coral is described as “an animated, life-affirming shade of orange, with golden undertones.” Color influences are felt in our culture through fashion, the arts, entertainment, travel, and lifestyle. Elliott Bridges, owner of Mainstream Boutique, says, “Color is an integral part of how our culture expresses emotion. Living Coral was determined based on global color tendency, current events, and on how color affects people’s attitudes and moods psychologically.” Paired well with a few sparks of this past year’s color, Ultra Violet, coral elicits feelings of optimism and warmth.
