How To Be Stylish In 2021

This year began in the middle of a global pandemic with a glimpse of hope for a better year as the vaccines began to roll out in December. So, it's only fitting that this year's colors of the year are Ultimate Gray and Illuminating. The two colors come together wonderfully to revel a sense of strength and hopefulness that is enduring and uplifting.

This pair of separate colors best express this year's mood by featuring how diverse fundamentals come together to support one another. The combination of the two colors create a duality that is practical and rock solid yet simultanously warming and optimistic. The joining of these colors is one of strength and positivity that summarizes rooted emotions of thoughtfulness with the promise of a bright and friendly future. 

The combination of ultimate gray + illuminating is aspirational and hopeful. This message of happiness supported by fortitude is what we need to feel that everything will get better, which is essential to our healing. 

As we look for a way to strengthen ourselves with energy, clarity and hope to survive the ongoing unpredictability of these days, these colors  are spirited and encouraging shades that satisfy our search for vitality. The color illuminating is a bright and cheerful yellow sparkling with vivacity, a warming yellow shade infused with solar power. The color ultimate gray is symbolic of solid and dependable elements which are everlasting and provide a firm foundation. The colors of pebbles on the beach and natural elements whose weathered appearance highlights and ability to stand the test of time, ultimate gray quietly assures, encouraging feelings of composure, steadfastness and resilience. 

We must build up courage within ourselves to accenutate our inherent desire to be seen, to be visible, to be recognized, and to have our voices heard. Ultimate Gray + Illuminating  is a combination of color whose links to perception, creation and intuition, and respect for wisdom, experience, and intelligence inspires regeneration, inspiring us forward toward new ways of thinking and ideas.
