Pantone has already published its fashion colors of the year 2021—Pantone 17-5104 (Ultimate Gray ) and Pantone 13-0647 ( Illuminating). 

Pantone said this marriage of popular colors conveys a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting. It is also the second time since 2016 to launch the annual popular colors combination. 

After the dark 2020, we are all eager to get some strength and positivity. These two solids coming together can indeed express the mood of warmth and optimism, which brings us deeper feelings of thoughtfulness with the promise of something sunny and friendly. Now let go ahead to see how they support each other. 

Exude Gentleness & Power 

These two independent colors, one is calm and retrained, another is lively and vibrant. But the union of ultimate gray and illuminating yellow expresses a message of positivity supported by fortitude and gives us resilience and hope. We can feel encouraged and uplifted when wearing this popular colors combination. 

Brighten Your Life 

The quiet and reliable gray combined with the joyful and optimistic yellow can appropriately balance our lives’ darkness and dullness. 

This is also a positive color impact whose ties to embolden our spirit and presses us forward toward new ways of thinking. 

Be Chic and Easy-Wear

As the annual popular color combination of 2021, these two opposing shades easily make a statement and offer us tons of dressing ways to style them together. Now I’m going to show you 4 dressing ideas about wearing the ultimate gray and yellow together, which applies to every woman. 

Sweater + Pants / Jeans

Speaking of yellow, it’s always a good addition to add a hint of freshness to your outfits. 

If you would like to take your office style game up a notch, opt for a pullover sweater with wide-leg pants. This is easily a wearable combo for anyone to rock on a work-to-work basis. When it happens to shoes, round off with pointed toes to the mix to level up the glamour factor.

For casual wear or a common night out, you can style an oversized sweater with a pair of loose fit jeans/ pants to create a casual-youthful ensemble. Sneakers or flats would look right with this getup.

Tops + Overalls/ Overall Dress

This off-duty getup of causal tops and bib overalls / overall dress is super easy for each woman to put together all in all seasons, helping you look chic, maintaining comfort, and ready for any time without spending time getting through your wardrobe. Don’t be afraid of the footwear; no matter the boots, sports shoes, sandals, or pumps can be the perfect pair to complete the look. 

Coat / Blazer + Dress

This pairing of yellow dress and gray coat is an elegant getup for each woman to upgrade their femininity. You can also introduce a gray blazer instead to arm up your ensemble’s formality a bit by finishing off with boots or pumps.

Those who think gray are too much can also try a yellow coat to be the main statement and inject a sense of playfulness. 

Less Yellow

To avoid your look being too eye-catchy on some business occasions, consider wearing less yellow actually. My favorite solution is wearing the yellow as accessories, such as bags, shoes, earrings, and teaming up with other neutrals; let the neutrals be the main area to tone down the look while still highlighting the pop yellow.
