This season is all about color, patterns and texture. From pale peach to saturated corals and periwinkle, there is a look for every mood.
LOCAL BOUTIQUES PUT STYLE INTO SUMMER
This season, fashion trends are as bright as the Lowcountry sun. Corals and oranges as are the standout hues, setting the tone for 2019’s warm-weather fashion.
Every year designers, clothing brands and retailers work from two color collections from color powerhouse Pantone. There is a collection of 16 colors that the company predicts will be hot for spring and summer and another set of 16 for fall and winter. The company also announces a color of the year — and this year, appropriately, it’s a peachy-pink shade called “Living Coral.”
