Styling Peach Fuzz

Is This Mutton on the Pantone colour of the year Peach Fuzz

Dear friends. You're probably aware that the Pantone Colour of the Year 2024 is Peach Fuzz.  I suspect you either reacted with delight or dismay.

Peach sits firmly in the warm toned camp, so if you're a winter in colouring it will do you no favours. However, Peach Fuzz is a shade that has more softness than clarity, so it can work for those coded summer, worn with other colours.

I have a bit of a soft spot for peach. When I was first told I was a spring in the 1980s, it was one of the few colours that was readily available.  I was more of a golden spring then with my dark hair and tanned complexion and peach was a great colour on me.

Now it's inclined to wash me out a bit, but adding a few other colours gives peach a bit of zest.

You don't need to find an exact match for Peach Fuzz. The pink peach family includes other shades such as apricot, salmon, blush. 

Here I'm wearing layers for warmth: a Light Peach top over a Peach Echo silky roll neck and a Turquoise wrap  (all Kettlewell). My trousers are dark brown velvet. The vegan orange bag was a Christmas present and I've tied a silk Kettlewell scarf around the handle.  The scarf would have been too much around my neck but adds a bit more colour lower down.

In the next look I've kept the silky roll neck and created a dress with a Kettlwwell Pippa top and ruched skirt, both in chocolate.  The tights are colour Peach from Snag.  Leopard print accessories, belt (Kettlewell) and clutch (old, Next) add a bit of interest.

I decided to take the photos indoors as it's very cold outside. Fortunately the decor is complementary! 

My last peach look for now is a Bright Apricot short tie wrap, pulled in so that I could add a belt. The top is Apple Mint. All from Kettlewell. 

Trousers are cotton rich relaxed straight trousers in calico from M&S (current).

You'll find plenty of peach in the shops, and not just for clothes.  It's also very trendy for soft furnishings and interior decor.
