Accessorize in style with Pantone’s Colors of the Year

Every December, designers wait with bated breath for the next year’s Pantone Color of the Year to arrive. Last year’s dependable blue hue symbolized trust, a trait we didn’t know we really needed until 2020 threw a few curveballs. In 2021, we’ve been blessed with not one but two shades: 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and 13-0647 Illuminating. According to Pantone, this pair was created as “a marriage of color conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting.” Celebrate a fresh start with these products in Pantone’s 2021 colors.
