Here are classy ways to style the color of the year for 2024.
As we usher in the new year, we’re also ushering in a color trend that’s as soft and feminine as it is stylish—Pantone’s 2024 Color of the Year, Peach Fuzz.
Studio 5 Style & Fashion Contributor Casey Matheny shares how to incorporate this warm, pinkish-orange hue into our wardrobes.
How to Pull the Color of the Year Into Your Wardrobe
Casey emphasizes the warmth, approachability, and ease of styling Peach Fuzz. It offers a refreshing change from the bold and challenging Viva Magenta of the previous year. Casey says the key is that it is a neutral, and it pairs well with various tones.
Accessorizing with Peach Fuzz
Casey recommends starting with accessories. Whether it’s a scarf, bag, or a pair of shoes, these accessories add a touch of Peach Fuzz without overwhelming the look. Embracing gold as the accent metal complements the warmth of the color.
Keeping It Neutral
Casey’s next tip is to keep things neutral. She suggests pairing Peach Fuzz with tans, beiges, and creams for a soft and comfy look. The idea is to stay in the soft, comfortable family of colors, providing a versatile palette for mixing and matching.
Making It Pop with White
If you want Peach Fuzz to pop, Casey recommends incorporating crisp white into the mix. A white blouse or blazer paired with peach trousers or a dress can make the color stand out nicely.
Casey loves tonal looks, especially with Peach Fuzz. She recommends experimenting with different textures and patterns within the same color family to add depth and interest to the outfit.
Contrasting with Blue Denim
The low-hanging fruit in Peach Fuzz styling is the complementary color—blue denim. Casey suggests that a great pair of indigo jeans can effortlessly contrast with Peach Fuzz, making the color pop.
