From bikinis to red carpets, brand stars have been stunning in the pretty hue for ages.

Late last week, Pantone announced that the color of 2024 is “Peach Fuzz,” a pinky-orange hue that takes a lighter and softer approach than vibrant tints like last summer’s popular Barbiecore trend.

“In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a color radiant with warmth and modern elegance,” Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute™, said of the choice. “A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.”

Not only is the color “youthful” and “timeless,” it’s a flattering shade that our SI Swimsuit models have been rocking gracefully for years. From Kamie Crawford’s  flattering high-neck crop top and skirt set to two brand stars rocking the very same peachy designer dress, we’ve got all the fashion inspo you need right here.

So, if you’re looking to incorporate the trendy shade into your wardrobe, take a cue from the following women.

Klum, a nine-time SI Swimsuit model and 1998 cover star, hit the America’s Got Talent red carpet in this Jenny Packham dress two summers ago. She wore the tie-front feather mini with clear pointed-toe pumps. Perhaps we’ll see a resurgence soon?

Molly Sims

Las Vegas actress and SI Swimsuit model Sims clearly got the memo from Pantone. She recently rocked a gorgeous peach fuzz-colored bikini on vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Williams English, our very own 2023 Rookie of the Year, expertly demonstrated that the color peach doesn’t have to be plain. Mix it up with complimentary patterns or prints like she did during Miami Swim week in July, and you’ll be sure to turn heads.

Brooks Nader

Speaking of cover girls, Nader was spotted in a gorgeous peach fuzz meets rose gold dress in the Hamptons over the summer. Take notes on how to accessorize this sweet, metallic-inspired version of the hue with an arm full of gold bangle bracelets.
