The year 2016 is off to a good start with the announcement of this year’s color from Pantone. For the first time, the company is blending two shades to stand for the color of the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity. These choices evoke a sense of a tranquility and order which was far from our reality in 2015. Here’s hoping to a more positive and peaceful 2016.

Pair with rustic neutrals such as russet and semolina to enhance the pastel colors. A great way to wear serenity is by going for a pair of light wash denim.

You could also pair the pastels with other pastels for a fresh take on spring. To keep from looking like a crayon box, balance with greys and off whites.

Lastly, mix a balance of warm and cool colors as rose quartz falls in line with oranges and pinks, while serenity is a cool shade like purple and green.
