I don't know the last time I've been so excited for Pantone to release the color of the year. This year's color brings back some fond 80's junior high / high school memories. Peach and turquoise were my colors long before they were cool (I'm looking through Momma's old photo albums for proof).
House Beautiful describes this year's color, Peach Fuzz, as a light, delicate shade that sits between pink and orange. This soft, heartfelt hue expresses the desire to nurture kindness, compassion, and connection—all while fostering a deep coziness as we seek a peaceful future.
Before we continue, can we just stop and appreciate Princess Di in this peach ensemble on a visit to Australia in 1983 (Getty Images). I mean, who didn't love Princess Di?
I love Pantone's description of this year's color: "PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz captures our desire to nurture ourselves and others. It's a velvety gentle peach tone whose all-embracing spirit enriches mind, body, and soul. 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."
Of course, you will be seeing FUZZY peach all over Flying SR this year, including a few samples of peach colored wild rags:
You know I'll be adding some peach colored sunnies to my collection, including these peach colored cat eyed sunglasses:
If y'all come across a vintage pearl snap like the one I found on Etsy, please let me know. I would love to add something like this to my wardrobe!
And before you think I'm completely, wholeheartedly binging peach, you're not wrong (the only peach I won't be partaking in is Boone's Farm Sun Peak Peach or Fuzzy Navel...how are we all still alive?)! I will be watching out and sharing these fashionable colors this spring:
And I didn't forget the home goods! if you're looking for colors for your home, look at persimmon, pearly white, and friendly yellow.
Well I hope you have a peach of a day and remember life is too short to take yourself seriously!
