2021 Pantone Colors of The Year: Illuminating & Ultimate Grey

Ultimate grey and Illuminating are cited by Pantone to be a marriage of two colors conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting. 

Considering the year we all just previously endured, a unique and inspiring color combo is just the thing we needed to reinvigorate the color palettes of our wardrobes and beyond. To us, the grey symbolizes the hardship and struggle we have persevered through while experiencing a year that brought us a deadly pandemic and severe social unrest; yet the illuminating yellow shade is a beautiful reminder that sorrow may last for a bit, but joy is always on the horizon. This color combination illustrates that sentiment perfectly and has inspired our One Posh Closet stylists to create some looks with our virtual styling app using these two riveting shades. 

The first look our stylists have curated is a casual monochromatic look that includes layers. This is perfect for the transitioning weather, and is also super comfortable and casual seeing as though many of us are working from home.

This next look features the captivating illuminating shade. You also may recognize the beautiful Prada Double Breasted Coat included in this look, as it was worn by the enchanting youth poet laureate Amanda Gorman, who spoke inspiringly and unequivocally at the 2021 Presidential Inauguration. Our One Posh Closet stylists personally shops for exclusive items such as this coat especially for our clients to fulfill all of their lifestyle needs.
