Considering the collective sentiment of people for the year 2021 – optimism and strength – colour authority Pantone announced Ultimate Gray and Illuminating, a brighter shade of yellow, as the colours of the Year 2021 in December last year.
Symbolizing warmth and resilience, these two independent yet complementary colours prove to be a winning combo when incorporated into your wardrobe, almost creating a magic similar to that of sunlight dancing on the gray pebbles on a beach.
Tempted to work these colours? Here are 7 staples to buy to build your summer wardrobe around the Pantone colours of the year 2021.1. Gray Sweats For A Laid-Back Style
If you are still reeling in the 2020 mood of lounging all-day-long in your sweatpants, it’s okay, just throw on a slogan T-shirt on your gray sweats to work that laid-back summer style.

Talk about summer essentials and chances are sunglasses may come second in your checklist preceded by a sunscreen with a hat being the next item on the list.
Let’s check our summer essential list the Pantone way. Opt for a tinted pair of sunglasses in yellow and team it with a gray bucket hat to be summer ready.

Men have banked on the dependability of gray since ages to build a solid look, and it’s about time that they add a dash vivacious yellow to their summer wardrobe. After all, what’s summer without some illuminating sunshine!
