The highly anticipated annual Pantone color of the year for 2021 is not one color but two! After 2020, it’s like they knew we needed more than one. So without further ado the colors are...drum roll, please…."Ultimate Grey” and “Illuminating yellow.”
According to Pantone, the colors were selected to represent "fortitude" and some much-needed positivity. The "Ultimate Grey" represents a "stable foundation," while the "Illuminating yellow" is like our light at the end of the tunnel or sunshine on a cloudy day. Together the two colors show the world's resiliency.
The colors have already been seen everywhere on the 2021 runways—from Prada and Gucci to Balmain and Givenchy. Which of course means that the colors will be huge in 2021 weddings. Cue two different colored bridesmaid dresses that still effortlessly complement each other—and we are so here for it. (And it’s already been proven that these colors are quite flattering!)
