For the first time ever, Pantone, the official color authority for fashion and decor, picked two colors of the year for 2016: Rose Quartz, a light pink, and Serenity, a dusty blue.
At first, my thought was “ugh… gender binaries. Isn’t that so 2014? Are we announcing twins here?” However, the colors grew on me. They are a very soothing combination. The colors are really pretty and they look good together, too!
The colors have already appeared on the Spring 2016 runways. Tosia is a perfect example.
See below for a few easy ways to incorporate the new colors into your wardrobe. If you’re not really a pastel kind of gal, start small with a layering piece or accessories! A new pair of shoes is the easiest way to try out a new trend.
