From a fashion stance, there's a lot to like about winter: Cosy coats, cashmere, party dresses and shearling-lined boots are just some of the sartorial treats we indulge in at this time of year. While we're not wishing the season away, we are starting to look to what 2019 in terms of style. From handbags and shoes to dresses and sunglasses, we've already given you the low down on some of spring/summer 2019 top trends. Now it's time for a lesson in colour…
A couple of weeks back, Pantone revealed Living Coral (a vibrant tangerine shade) as its 2019 Colour of the Year. Now, though, the company showcased its full predictions for 2019. The spectrum of 16 colours boasts a near-perfect red (or, as Pantone calls it, Fiesta), a deep navy (Eclipse) and a hot-pink (Pink Peacock)—all of which are set to dominate our homes and our wardrobes in the coming months. As always, our aim is to keep you one step ahead of the trends, which is why we've picked out the six colours we think fashion will adopt for spring so you can buy into them early. Keep scrolling to add some new-season flair to your winter wares.
Style Notes: Dustier in tone than Millennial Pink, this is how grown-ups do the romantic shade. Invest in a clean-cut blazer and wear it with jeans and statement accessorises.
Style Notes: This is one of the shades that is featured in Pantone's edit for 2019, so you can't go wrong with a green purchase. For a classic approach, look for khaki staples you'll wear year after year.
Style Notes: If you bought into the yellow trend in 2018, you'll be pleased to hear the hue is still very much on the fashion agenda next year, too.
Style Notes: As 2019's official colour of the year, you'll start to see Living Coral clothing crop up in all of your favourite stores. Treat yourself to a chunky knit now, and then a linen dress accessories the warmer months.
Style Notes: Yes, 2018 was a big year for the royals, so it's little wonder that royal blue is very much a thing again. Make like Tamu and use a pair of colour-pop shoes to lift tonal ensembles, or go all-out with a cobalt midi.
Style Notes: Brown has made a gargantuan comeback, and it looks set to continue its reign into the New Year. Look for different textures like silk, wool and patent leather to give the hue added oomph.
