Yellow and gray.

 

 

What makes Pantone the "experts" on color?

 

 

What criteria do they use to determine the "color(s)" of the year?

 

 

Not being snarky, just curious .

@Mindy D.  Thanks, but they're both awful.  Not many people can wear either.

OK. They look great together. I'm not a "grey" person, but a lot of people will look great in these. And they are calming colors.

@Anonymous032819.  Look up their website.  They're experts on any and everything having to do with color.  Probably not many companies which do the same or similar work.

Why is it that when I click on the photo of the colors it goes to a wiki article on Obsessive-compulsive disorder?

Re: Pantone’s new colors of the year

I'm a fan of yellow - it's always been good color for me.  I get the most comments when I wear yellow near my face.  I have a lot of yellow tops and scarves.

 

When I was a blonde - gray was terrible on me, but since I've gone "au naturale" - I can wear some shades of gray near my face.  

 

I have lots of gray pants and shoes - and a really pretty shades of gray crochet lace vest that I made recently to wear over LOGO.

Yellow and gray - interesting choice.  Not colors I would necessarily choose.  I love my yellow and blue kitchen but I can't necessarily wear yellow.  I wear some gray on the bottom but not on top and wouldn't think of combining the two.  Oh well, they didn't ask me did they?  HAHA  It'll be intereting to see what combos of these two colors we see going forward through the year.

I am not a yellow person. My first car was yellow (I didn't want it but was kind of told it was this or your on your own), it lived up to it's name because it was a LEMON!

Re: Pantone’s new colors of the year

I don't wear or look good in either color...
