Color Crush: Coral

by | Jul 10, 2020 | Color Crush, Style

While I absolutely love all shades of blue, I try to bring some other colors into my wardrobe. Lately, I’ve found myself having a color crush on coral. It is such a flattering color on all skin tones, and I’m seeing a lot of it from brands. If you didn’t know, Living Coral was the designated color of the year by Pantone in 2019, and it definitely has continued trending on into 2020. I love that coral comes in so many shades! It can lean more pink, orange or red depending upon the fabric. You can shop all of my coral picks in the boutique below!

If you’re looking to add this bright hue to your summer wardrobe, there are many ways to do so! The easiest way to do so is with a fun dress like this one or this one. I’ve also found a few dresses that bring coral in with a floral pattern or citrus print. This linen dress is a great option at an even better price, and it’s currently on sale for $55.

Coral Print Dress / Woven Clutch / Rockstud Espadrilles / Alicia Earrings in Gold / Alicia Necklace in Gold / Hazen Classic Trio (See more of my Hazen Jewelry Collection here)

I recently purchased this dress from Sail To Sable and found so many other cute coral options available!  It has so many pretty details from the tassels on the ties to the smocked wrist detail and the tiny ruffles on the skirt.  The beautiful dress I’m wearing also comes in a caftan version and a top in the same print. The green floral embroidery on this dress provides the perfect pop of color against the coral.

If you aren’t a dress fan, I’ve included this adorable pair of shorts, this romper, and this athletic top.

The next way to add in this fun pop of color is with a chic swimsuit. This one from Summersalt has the cutest ruffle detail on the straps along with a fun polka dot print mix. I own the black version of  this one tha has has two shades of coral in it.  I LOVE it!  This one-piece features such a flattering fit. My oldest daughter loves this modest bikini from Cabana Life that is currently 30% off! All of these would look great poolside paired with these Havaianas sandals.

Accessories like purses and jewelry are another way you can incorporate into your wardrobe, too. I love this bracelet from Hazen & Co. It’s a fun way to dress up something already in your closet or accent a coral dress. You could also do the same with this pair of earrings or these as well. You could elevate your look with this coral cross-body bag that has a gorgeous gold chain to carry it or go for a more casual look with this neoprene carryall tote.

I think you’ll find some great coral pieces that you’ll love in the boutique below! Looking for more style inspiration for summer?
