Pantone Color of the Year: Peach Fuzz

Every year, Pantone, the global color authority, chooses one shade to be its color of the year. If you have ever wondered how they decide, it’s not just about picking a color from a hat.

Pantone carefully studies what is happening in our world and chooses the perfect shade that they feel expresses the essential values of our time. The color tells a story about how we are all feeling.

Recently, Pantone announced Peach Fuzz as its 2024 Color of the Year. What does this mean?

  1. If scarves were in style I might go with a peach fuzz scarf or a print top that includes darker tones with the pastel. I need brighter, not paler, colors, although I think it is a really pretty shade.

  2. Never! I have a sallow complexion. And I am a winter. Another year of finding nothing to wear. All you blondes and redheads enjoy.

  3. Because I’m a seasonal winter, I would pair it with coral, as it’s a little too pale for my coloring. I might wear a T-shirt in peach fuzz with a coral-colored cardigan, as some pale colors are not the best for me unless they are a very icy tone. Like most seasonal winter women, I look better in jewel tones or vibrant colors.

    1. Hi Susan, Sounds like you have a great understanding of your Winter Palette! I’m a huge fan of color theory and I know what works for me and wear it all the time. Coral, peach are my key colors so this spring the colors are perfect for me. Thanks for your comment. Cheers, Deborah
