2020 has messed around with us; it had an effect on the Pantone judges as well. Why choose only one color for 2021 when life is so diverse and quickly changes from one day to the other? Therefore, we don’t have one single Pantone Color of the Year, but two. Discover how to incorporate Illuminating Yellow and Ultimate Gray in your wardrobe.

Pantone Color of the Year
“A message of happiness supported by fortitude, the combination of PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating is aspirational and gives us hope. We need to feel that everything is going to get brighter – this is essential to the human spirit,” explains Pantone’s website. Where the past twelve months were all about Classic Blue – the color that’s all about desire and reassurance – the upcoming year will be all about Gray and Yellow. The combination of these two colors is warm and optimistic and – above all – stands for hope. Whether you go for a color blocking ensemble or an office gray tenue, these colors will be your go-to the upcoming months.
