In case you missed, Pantone announced 2019’s color of the year: Living Coral. It is described as “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.” This also symbolizes “our desire for playful expression.”If this is the kind of mindset you need next year, it might be time to add it into your life. Let’s start with some clothing.
Uniqlo EZY Satin Ankle Pants
Add some punch to your work outfit with 2019’s color of the year. Trade in your black and blue trousers for these coral ones. It’s made of satin so it’s comfortable when you’re sitting at your desk for long periods of time. It also has an elastic waist that will adjust to fit you properly. Available in Glorietta 5.
Adidas Originals Campus
Still obsessed with white sneakers? Try something different with these from Adidas. It os a more muted coral shade with matching laces. Use this to add color to your outfit or to finish off an all-coral ensemble. Available at Power Plant Mall.
Penshoppe The Dress Code Boxy Fit Tee
Stock up on basics with a twist like this T-shirt. It has loose boxy fit and a cropped hemline. It’s short enough that it will hit high-waisted bottoms in case you don’t feel like showing skin. Wear this with shorts, skirts, and even with overalls. Available at SM Megamall.
Topshop Pleat Mini Shirt Dress
I find coral to be a sweet and soft color, so here’s a piece that reflects that. This mini dress has pleat details along the skirt and long sleeves. Pair this with boots or wedged shoes and a crossbody bag. Available at SM Aura Premier.
Tory Burch Ella Canvas Mini Tote
Totes are very versatile, you can use them for work, traveling, and quick stops to the grocery. This one has leather handles, canvas body, and a roomy main compartment. It also has a zip section for valuables. We can see this being used at an island vacation. Available at Rustan’s Makati.
H&M Frilled Bikini
To go with your coral tote, pick up this bikini. This popsicle-like color will look great on all skin tones. The top is hole-patterned and has a frilled hem. Don’t forget your denim shorts a maybe a white kimono cover up to complete your look. Available at Uptown Mall.
Mango Open Knit Cardigan
If you’re in need of a new chunky cardigan like me, check this one out. It has dropped shoulders and a cable knit finish, which gives it a lot of texture. This bright color will definitely be the showstopper of your ensemble. Available at Greenbelt 5.
