Each year we get excited to see what “the color of the year” is! Usually we
are even more excited when we find out what it is. This year it is “Peach Fuzz”.
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director at the Pantone Color Institute, said "In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a color radiant with warmth and modern elegance. A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless."
Renae is a Yellow Based person so this is her color and is in her skin tone. Sophie is a Blue Based so she should not be as excited. Remember peach is in the orange family so it is not found in both spectrums, only YB.
Let's explore and find out where peach fuzz is most popular.
Peach fuzz is this mellow orange that has a very retro femme vibe. It can be seen in more elegant looks like this ruffled silk dress from Vogue Magazine which suits the color very well.
Peach fuzz is also a popular color for bridesmaid dresses and it looks stunning in silk once again. It's a risky color to choose for bridesmaids since they most likely won't all be Yellow Based, but in pictures the group looks gorgeous.
In decorating peach fuzz is a good accent when used for pillows on a sofa or chair, area rug, walls in the laundry room and other accents.
Peach is not the best color to use in advertising and marketing because it comes across as weak.
Peach is also great to use in your makeup look if you are Yellow Based and lighter, mellow shades compliment your aesthetic. In the picture below the peach is a bit more pigmented than peach fuzz, but it shows how beautiful peach can be on a YB skin tone.
Tips from Renae:
Staying with your color spectrum and not falling prey to the fads will keep you
looking your very best self all year long until the next “color of the year”
comes out. Staying true to yourself is the best rule you can follow.
Color yourself perfect in 2024:
1. Don't mix spectrums on yourself
2. Choose the right make-up colors for you
