Get ready for a year of kindness and collaboration—in peach. Pantone announced its Color of the Year 2024: Peach Fuzz (Pantone 13-1023), a color the global color authority says evokes "a fresh approach to a new softness...bringing a feeling of tenderness and communicating a message of caring and sharing, community and collaboration."
We can get behind that.
Wondering how it will look in dress form? Mother of the bride Conni was ahead of the trend. Check her out in a dress from Veiled Collection:
We're already spotting peachy hues on the racks—everything from a warm beige to champagne to pale pinks and oranges fits this category. Here are a few to start you down the road to peachy softness in 2024.
Sachin & Babi One Shoulder Column Gown
The brand describes this sleek column gown as "copper," but that's just a fancy way of saying peach. The Mikado fabric gives it sleek structure; the sculptured, crystal encrusted bow and cap sleeve makes it a knock out. $995. Sizes 0 to 14. Buy from Sachin & Babi.
Mac Duggal One Shoulder Embellished Gown
Soft...and just a little sexy. We love the drape of the one shoulder neckline on this peach colored gown, the subtle pleating from where it gathers at the middle, the delicate beading and embellishment. But the side cut out and slit give it the va-va-voom. $598. Sizes 4 to 14. Buy from Saks Fifth Avenue.
Birdy Grey Empire Dress
Sheer flutter sleeves, empire waist, and pockets: all the ingredients you need to feel comfortable while dressed up. The "Hannah" dress comes in more than a dozen colors, including this deep peach hue, which they call Terracotta. $99. Sizes XS to 3X. (Allow up to 8 weeks for arrival as some sizes are made to order.) Buy from Birdy Grey.
Sachin & Babi One Shoulder Bias Cut Gown
A modern twist on the one shoulder style with a bow designed for women who don't think of themselves as bow wearers. The champagne hue has an undertone of peach. $285. Sizes 0 to 14. Buy from Anthropologie.
Adrianna Papell Metallic Long Sleeve Dress
This shimmering dress on the beigey side of peach would be perfect for a cocktail occasion. Knee length prevents it from being too formal, but the metallic gives it that special shimmer. we love the wrap style, gathered front ruffle and long sleeves. $169. Sizes 14 to 24. Buy from Nordstrom.
