Pantone said the color “brings belonging, inspires recalibration, and an opportunity for nurturing,” adding “we can find peace from within, impacting our wellbeing.”

This is the 25th anniversary of Pantone selecting a color — or in the case of 2021 and 2016, colors — that will represent the upcoming year.

Recent selections, such as Viva Magenta, have been bright and showy. For 2024, it appears Peach Fuzz is bringing a different feeling, one of warmth, compassion and coziness that “enriches the soul,” Pantone Color Institute vice president Laurie Pressman said in a news release, according to the Post.

Leatrice Eisman, Pantone’s color specialist, told CNN, “It’s a warm and cozy shade. And it’s very tactile. We feel that at a time like this, tactility is really important — to touch other people and gather them into our homes.”

Peach has already made its presence known, featured on runways previewing the Spring and Summer fashion styles for next year, CNN reported.

Even Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson sported a peach fuzz-colored tuxedo jacket for the 2023 Oscars.
