So what is Pantone's color of the year for 2019?

Living Coral! This means that 2019's coral color is bold, yet it's not harsh, but rather a soft, bright, orangish color with a golden undertone.

It's basically the most flattering coral hue that you can imagine, and it's surprising easy to wear and 110% on trend.
