8 ways to wear Pantone's Color of the Year, Peach Fuzz, in Houston
Goodbye, Barbie Pink, and hello, Peach Fuzz.
The Pantone Color Institute recently announced its choice for color of the year for 2024 and described it as "an appealing peach hue softly nestled between pink and orange [that] inspires belonging, recalibration, and an opportunity for nurturing, conjuring up an air of calm, offering us a space to be, feel, and heal and to flourish from."
The calming color will eventually make its way into everything from fashion and beauty to paints and home decor. The muted tone pairs well with everything from muted orange and salmon pink tones to neutrals like cream, tan, lavender, teal, berry, and mint green.
What does this mean for fashion? Peach Fuzz is the new neutral.
