GLIDDEN Paint DOESN’T Announce a 2020 Color of the Year

The GLIDDEN® paint brand announced it’s not announcing a 2020 Color of the Year. As a matter of fact, this is the brand’s official breakup letter with Color of the Year selections.

While other paint brands are celebrating their varying “it” paint colors for the next year, Glidden wants to help do-it-yourselfers (DIYers) and procrastipainters alike get rolling on the paint projects they’ve been putting off by cutting ties with trends and simplifying the color selection process.

Glidden paint is unveiling the color people actually will use in 2019 and beyond – Whirlwind (PPG1013-3), a fail-proof cool gray with a touch of blue.

Grays have been trending for more than a decade,” said Kim Perry, Glidden paint’s color guru. “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it! Whirlwind was one of our top tinted colors this year, so DIYers can rest easy knowing they can enjoy it for years to come. Instead of staring blankly at a paint color card questioning all your life choices, you can spend time doing what you really want to do. Like drinking wine or binge watching TV in your freshly painted living room.

Try using Whirlwind on the walls of a cute galley kitchen, pairing it with navy blue cabinets and quartz countertops, or in a living room layered with various shades of gray and canary yellow accent pillows – the combination represents sunshine and happiness, if that’s your thing. If you’re successfully #adulting, pair Whirlwind on the exterior of your home with a vibrant red door and gray deck furniture – making everyone in the cul-de-sac stare with envy and sheer admiration.

Think of Whirlwind as your easy-to-get-along-with color that’s an alternative to basic white or beige,” said Perry. “Gray colors whisper, while other colors scream on your wall. Not literally – but who wants a screaming anything in their house?

For Every You

Macy’s fall campaign, “For Every You,” features the power of fashion as self-expression and follows women on the journey to the ideal look to the soundtrack of Lizzo’s “Like a Girl.” Women choose an outfit for more than outward appearance, as a look can also express who they want to become while wearing it.

Fall Fashion

This autumn, shoppers can seek out remarkable style and engage with key trends in a personal way. For women, greenery is the central hue for fall. Deep shades of kelly and olive reference the natural world and tones can be mixed and matched effortlessly. Varied textures add interest and dimension, like a snake and crocodile I.N.C. International Concepts pump. For a little more boldness, walk on the wild side with animal prints of every variety. From natural leopard on faux fur coats to neon hues of snake on Bar III dresses, pattern is king of the jungle this season. Try a new twist on plaid with bold color mixes and prints of all sizes, like a tweed Julia Jordan dress or a Vince Camuto plaid top and skirt with just the right hint of neon.

Midi lengths are key in skirts and dresses, like those from Tommy Hilfiger, especially when paired with oversized sweaters. Add some drama to a casual look with a voluminous sleeve or make the ultimate style statement with a Lauren Ralph Lauren head-to-toe plaid suit. Animal prints make marks on everything from handbags to Calvin Klein intimates, while statement earrings approach the trend with tortoiseshell prints. Western accents adorn shoes, hats and saddle bags with buckles, fringe and whipstitch details. Chunky sole sneakers, like those from DKNY, keep any look feeling fresh and new arrivals shoes from Sam Edelman offer something for every style.

In menswear, gray matters this fall. From sleek tailored suiting in windowpane patterns by Tommy Hilfiger to streetwear sets by Ellesse, the head-to-toe monochromatic look is sure to turn heads. For a standout moment, try a silver metallic moto trucker jacket from Michael Kors or an abstract printed trench from Alfani. The modern utility trend also offers new twists on menswear favorites. A military jacket from Levi’s is an effortlessly cool take on the trend, while a head-to-toe wine-colored camo suit from I.N.C. International Concepts is the ultimate statement.

Fall Beauty

Embrace your fearless self this fall and don’t be afraid to play with color! Bold and bright eyes are the hottest beauty trend this season. Pack on the pigment with Anastasia Beverly Hills x Jackie Aina Palette or clean beauty brand PÜR’s Barbie Endless Possibilities Pressed Pigments Palette. Use the same shade on the lower lash line to amp up the wow factor! On days where you want to up the ante but don’t have the time, try the season’s hottest lip trend, the flame lip. It’s great to wear on its own and make a chic bold statement. Channel your inner French girl with Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick in 080 Red Smile or Chanel Rouge Allure Liquid Powder in 954 Radical. This modern twist on the classic red lip brings orange hues out to play.
