Embrace Pantone Color of the Year 2024 – Peach Fuzz

Embrace Pantone Color of the Year 2024 - Peach Fuzz

Each year, Pantone announces its Color of the Year—which embodies current trends and sets the fashion standards for the rest of the year. Pantone’s Color of the Year 2024 is Peach Fuzz, a soft, warm tone halfway between pink and orange, which is perfect for this time of year.

What is Pantone Color of the Year?

In 1963, Pantone devised a color-matching system that revolutionized the printing industry. It was a way to make sure colors could be produced in a way that was consistent and accurate. That initial system had 500 colors, but it has expanded over the years to include over 2300 solid colors. This universal language of color is used by designers in print, textiles, fashion, interiors, and every industry around the world.

The Pantone Color Institute forecasts color trends worldwide and is recognized as a leader in this field.

Excitingly, 2024 is the 25th anniversary of Pantone’s Color of the Year, and what started as a way to engage the design community has now grown into a major influence. But you might be thinking, how does Pantone select the color for that year?

It’s chosen by a team of experts who look at everything that influences our culture and use trend analysis to come up with a shade that encapsulates the year.

The color for this year is a gentle peach, chosen for its warmth, softness, and velvety feel. When looking at trends and culture, the team saw a desire in people for nurturing and connection, which led to Peach Fuzz being chosen thanks to its feeling of belonging, healing, and nourishing that it inspires. After last year’s bright and vivid magenta, in 2024, we need something sweeter and more sensitive.

When it comes to eyewear, a gentle peach can look beautiful. Subtle and soft, it’s a tone that really works well in frames, and you’ll see it across many different styles and brands. Now for the fun part – let’s look at some of the frames we stock that feature this year’s top color.

This style in rose peach is a subtle take on the shade of Peach Fuzz, with its transparent frame and minimalist style. The stripes on the arms add a fun hint of color, while the pale front is unobtrusive and dainty.

Styling Peach Fuzz

You’ll commonly find many Peach Fuzz-inspired frames featuring other complementary colors. This is so they can suit a wide range of skin tones. Combining the soft peach with a richer plum or orange means the wearer appears less washed out. Another option is fading the peach back to a tint, which works well with a fashionable translucent frame.

People with very pale or dark skin can wear peach well, whereas others will find that an alternative shade or combination of tones suits them better. The frames we’ve highlighted all cleverly make use of colors that are in the same family as peach to suit a variety of people.

When you’re thinking about styling your new peach frames, neutral colors such as cream and beige will go very well. If you prefer to wear more color, look to the opposite side of peach on the color wheel and you’ll find that blues are the perfect complementary tone. You can also be a little more adventurous, as emerald green can look stunning alongside peach.
