Pantone’s New Colors and How You Can Use Them to Give Your Wardrobe a Twist



Pantone is a company that is best known for the Pantone Matching System. This is a proprietary color space used in a variety of industries including art, fashion, interior design…and the list goes on.

The company has just announced their color picks for 2021. And the winners are (drumroll please)….ultimate gray and bright lemon yellow! The color combination is said to signify the gray of the previous year along with cheery hope for the year to come.

Pantone colors are always big in the world of fashion. Here are some ways you can incorporate them into your looks.

Yellow Jacket

A yellow jacket is a terrific fashion accessory. Unlike pants or shirts that you want to change out regularly, you can wear jackets every day of the week. This gives you plenty of opportunities to create great gray and yellow looks.

This year trench coats will be big, especially ones in interesting colors other than camel. This yellow trench is sure to get to the top of the list.

All Yellow Outfits

Another great choice is to go with an all-yellow look. A completely yellow dress, a yellow suit or a yellow two-piece outfit is ideal. Match it with gray shoes and accessories and you are good to go.

Yellow and Gray Pieces

If you find a piece of clothing that already has yellow and gray in it, your work will be cut out for you. You can add more gray and yellow or just put on a pair of blue jeans and you have the style down.
