Get the look of the color of the year with these serenity and rose quartz looks.
The reviews have been mixed on Pantone’s pick for Color of Year for 2016. For the first time in its history the color forecasting giant chose two colors for 2016. Those colors are serenity, a soft blue, and rose quartz, an ethereal pink. The decision has seen somewhat mixed reviews, but like it or not the colors are here to stay. Pretty soon, they will be the colors you will find everywhere.
If you aren’t so sure about the colors, let us put it into perspective for you. In the way of fashion, Serenity and Rose Quartz are a huge improvement over the Marsala pick for 2015. Marsala is a fine color for a wall, but it’s more limiting in fashion. While Serenity and Rose Quartz prove flattering to many more skin tones, Marsala is a much more challenging color to pull off.
If you aren’t convinced, here are some of our favorite Serenity and Rose Quartz fashions to take you into the new year.
