Pantone’s Color of the Year 2024, Peach Fuzz, is here, and I mean that quite literally. Just over a week into the new year, the muted coral hue is already popping up in sweater, sneaker, and sunglass form, and the shopping trend experts at Firstfinds say you’ll see a whole lot more of it come spring. With the 20 Peach Fuzz fashion items below, you can be among the first to adopt the latest color trend.

“Pantone’s ability to predict some of the most prominent hues in fashion is unmatched,” says Summer Cartwright, Firstfinds senior editor. “Last year’s Viva Magenta was a cornerstone of 2023’s Barbiecore trend.” Expect subtle peach shades to soon eclipse hot pink, as they’re more approachable and easier to style in monochromatic looks. And, expect the color name to be taken literally, with peach fuzz-inspired textures like fleece, suede, and corduroy working their way into our wardrobes, too.

In Pantone’s annual color report, Peach Fuzz is described as “an appealing peach hue softly nestled between pink and orange [that] inspires belonging, recalibration, and an opportunity for nurturing, conjuring up an air of calm, offering us a space to be, feel, and heal and to flourish from.” Consider me sold. The report’s color palette predictions for 2024 pair muted orange and salmon pink tones with everything from neutrals like cream and tan to saturated shades of lavender, teal, berry, and mint green. Read: It can be worn with far more than you’d expect. Need more proof? Scroll ahead.
