Shortly before the holidays, Pantone announced that 2019’s color of the year would be Living Coral. A sort of salmon pink, they describe it as ‘animating’ and ‘lively.’ It “[symbolizes] our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits,” the text continues. Now tell me if that doesn’t correctly summarize that springtime mood!
I’m a fan of black lingerie, but I like having vibrant color in my lingerie collection too. It’s a fun pick-me-up when I put it on in the morning, an instant mood-booster. Brash orange hues can be a bit harsh though, and not everyone’s a fan of pink. But with coral, you can never quite decide which of those two colors it is.
It also feels unexpected---because it is. There isn’t a whole lot of coral lingerie around. Filling a blog post with sets in Pantone’s specific shade proved too tricky. But below you’ve got 16 that range from light coral to darker, more vibrant tones. Why not add one to your lingerie drawer for the Spring ahead?
