Pantone has announced the colour of 2021 and what's amazing is that they have broken their tradition of announcing just one colour and have revealed two options.

Choosing ultimate grey and illuminating (a shade of yellow) as the colours that will rule 2021, the company announced the news with a post on Instagram.

'These are a marriage of colour, conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both empowering and uplifting.

'Illuminating is a bright and cheerful yellow, sparkling with vivacity, a warming yellow shade imbued with solar power.

'Ultimate grey is emblematic of solid and dependable elements which are everlasting and provide a firm foundation.'

These two colours come together to create an aspirational pairing and we bring to you celeb-inspired ways to wear them.
