On the Runway…Living Coral

Good morning lovelies!!

Today I want to share some images of Pantone’s Living Coral as it was shown on the runways. Some designers used the color very boldly and others were a little more restrained. Today I am featuring the designs of Elisabetta Franchi and Primavera Estate.

This first photo is one of my favorites. It’s from the spring 2019 Primavera Estate show and it features not only beautiful coral in a gorgeous pleated halter top and blazer but a pair of highwaisted denim cropped jeans complete with a fringed hem and decorated front pockets. So on trend!!

This second look is from the spring 2019 collection of Elisabetta Franchi. Wrap dresses are an essential in your wardrobe as they go from day to evening. Add a camisole below your dress for a modest work look. Style tip: You can take this dress from spring into fall by wearing it with boots.

This show stopping coat dress was featured on the runway of Elisabetta Franchi. Everything about this dress says confidence. High low hems remain prominent this year. This may be a little too risque to wear alone for some. Cigerette/stove pipe style trousers in a neutral color would make it easier to wear.

Etro never disappoints and in 2019 there were many lovely pieces like this printed dress. Perfect for the Bohemian woman!! The ruffled sleeves mimic the tiered skirt. The three quarter length sleeve is wearable on all body types.

Another example of the way Primavera Estate chose to use Living Coral. In shots of color…notice the shoes, bag and belt!! Bold stripes in colors mimicking a run rise paired with neutral colored wide legged capris. The emphasis being a small waist. So chic!

Elisabetta Franchi accented the waistline with a bodice top and semi full pleated skirt. This look exudes femininity. Style tip: A pleated skirt is a great way to minimize fuller hips.

This last look is another from Primavera Estates and one I feel it is the most fun way to wear Living Coral. Anyone can wear this casual chic look. Style tip: Pair a verticle striped skirt (which lengthens you) with a coral tank top or tee shirt. Top it off with a demin jacket & flats.

So now that you have an idea of how the designers showed Living Coral, how will you wear it?
