As you're shopping for chic holiday gifts this month, look for the items that feature the color coral!

Pantone has announced that the bright shade is their choice for color of the year for 2019, a shade that works amazingly with so many skintones.

“Color is an equalizing lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities and this is particularly true for Living Coral,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

“With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanizing and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial Pantone Living Coral hit a responsive chord.”

Coral is the perfect shade to add a pop of color to your ensembles, or to make it the feature of your entire look.

You don't even need to wait until the spring/summer to rock this color that packs a major punch.

Scarves, socks, and even makeup can help brighten up your dark, winter looks.

There are plenty of coral lipsticks on the market, should you feel a little bold while shopping holiday sales at Sephona or Ulta.

If you are a big fan, you can even add splashes of the shade at home through comforters, curtains, and decorative pillows.

What are some ways you will add coral to your daily life?
