Pantone Colour of 2024

Peach Fuzz (PANTONE 13-1023) was announced by the Pantone Institute as the colour of 2024. in December last year.

Lauded by the institute as being “Subtly sensual, (Peach Fuzz is) a heartfelt hue bringing a feeling of kindness and tenderness, communicating a message of caring and sharing, community and collaboration. A warm and cozy shade highlighting our desire for togetherness with others or for enjoying a moment of stillness and the feeling of sanctuary this creates, it presents a fresh approach to a new softness.”

Emotional Meaning behind Peach Fuzz

The Fashion United website has an in-depth look at how this Peach Fuzz came to be chosen and has some pictures from the catwalks of Victoria Beckham, Erdem and Dennis Basso (to name just a few).

It is a colour that sits between pink and orange. From a Colour Analysis view-point it appears on the spring and pastel spring fans (or warm spring and light spring fans depending on which system you prefer).

How to wear Peach Fuzz

This colour easily lends itself to highlighters, blushers and lipsticks – but if this is a colour you haven’t worn before, the easiest way to add it to your wardrobe is with accessories – perhaps a scarf is the easiest starting point (Take a look at the, or a summer beach bag or sandals. Being a warm colour, the best metallic pairing is with gold.

(Havianas have some flip flops in Peach Fuzz and gold.)

Colour Combinations

If you want to combine Peach Fuzz with another colour then the complementary colour is blue – so you can easily wear this shade with denim for a more informal look – however it could also be worn with white trousers or jeans or with a white jacket and look very chic.

Wearing Peach Fuzz with creams or other neutrals, such as tan or beige, will give it a less sophisticated look – a look which will appear comfortable rather than chic.

Of course, it can also be paired with grey and various shades of mauve.

It will undoubtedly be a big hit with the wedding industry as it lends itself to bridesmaids dresses as well as looking beautiful in a bouquet. There are so many flowers to choose in this shade including peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, and dahlias.
