The 2021 Pantone Color of the year goes to “ULTIMATE GREY” and “ILLUMINATING,” the color combo The New York Times dubs “the light at the end of the tunnel. The kind of gray of wisdom (gray beards!) and intelligence (gray matter!) and construction.”
One person’s dependable is another person’s depressing, however, which is where Illuminating comes in. It’s not the egg yolk-like yellow of Mimosa, the color of the year of 2009, nor an acidic or highlighter yellow, nor the “go into the light” yellow of the afterlife, or sci-fi adventure, but more of a sunshine, or smiley face, yellow. The color combination presses us forward.”
So cheers to ILLUMINATING YELLOW and a few of my fave yellow outfits. A lot of the items are sold out since they are outfits from late last year and this year. Needless to say, I’m wearing a whole lot of yellow to cheer myself up next year.
