Glacier Gray by Pantone

Glacier Gray is an “unobtrusive gray that contrasts and enhances…bouncing off other shades without taking away from them,” according to Pantone. Glacier Gray is a timeless shade that allows “other colors to take center stage,” the color agency continues.

1. Pair Glacier Gray attire with a pop of red to make a vibrant yet still seasonless statement, like Dennis Basso.
