Pantone color of the year

By Ashley Aikele

color of the year 2016

You’ve probably heard that Pantone announced not one, but the blending of two colors for the Color of the Year 2016: PANTONE 15-3919 Serenity blue and PANTONE 13-1520 Rose Quartz. When joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity show a balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting wellness and a soothing sense of order and peace (something we could all use a little bit more of, don’t you think?) I’m in love with this pink shade already and excited to embrace colors that have a calming sense for 2016.

Here are some of my favorite rose quartz and serenity street style images from around the web to inspire your wardrobe for 2016.

A Statement Dress //

Try out to color of the year with a great statement dress. Both colors pair great with neutrals and make for a perfect look, day or night.
My favorite statements dresses: one, two, three, four


A great way to incorporate serenity into your wardrobe is with light denims. A light denim shirt is a wardrobe must have and pairs great with all shades of denim.
My favorite denim tops: one / two / three

pink duster

An easy way to bring rose quartz into your closet is with a duster or jacket.
My favorite jackets: one / two / three

serenity pants

If you’d like to take a risk try a trouser pant in serenity.
My favorite trousers: one / two / three

nail polish

For a more subtle way of incorporating serenity try going with a pale blue polish.
My favorite blue polishes: one / two / three

blush tee shirt

One of my favorite ways to wear rose quartz is with a simple tee shirt.

It seems to me that these are also the theme colors from Frozen. 🙂
