Raquel Greer Gordian of Greer Image Consulting joined Studio 512 to talk about Pantone’s choice for Color of the Year, which happens to be two shades in 2021: Illuminating and Ultimate Gray.
If these two colors feel a bit tricky to work into your wardrobe, Raquel has some tips with outfits she styled:
“Colorful gray” — In this case, colorful can still be a soft palette! Raquel says that “Ultimate Gray” is a light/soft/cool neutral, so other colors in that realm, like blush, champagne, lavender and mint are great choices. A lighter denim is a great topper on this more muted outfit.
“Neutral gray” — One of the best neutrals for gray? White! This brighter neutral can really make the gray pop, and Raquel pairs a tied (or cropped) shirt with a midi dress, which is still a very fashionable silhouette for the new year. Pop on white heels and white accessories to make this look even more vibrant.
“Colorful yellow” — What fun! This outfit is really cheerful, with a play on the warm/clear/light shade of lemon that “Illuminating” is. Similar colors to this yellow are also spring-like: watermelon and lime. Check out Raquel’s cactus earrings as a way to combining lemon/lime colors in this bright style.
“Neutral yellow” — If you’d like to take Illuminating to the office, Raquel suggests other warm colors like navies and tans. Medium wash denim is another good choice, if you’ve got a more relaxed dress code. If you’re taking this look out for fun, playing with proportion with long coat and short skirt is a good way to shake things up!
