For the first time, PANTONE has launched two shades as their Colour of the Year. Rose Quartz and Serenity reflect warm and cool tones and a connection between order and peace.
PANTONE explains the decision behind the Colour(s) of the Year:
“In many parts of the world, we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design … a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information … has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.”
Feeling inspired? Read on for some smart ways to incorporate Rose Quartz and Serenity into your wardrobe for different occasions. Plus, these colors are perfect to wear for Valentine’s Day and gives you a chance to wear something other than red.
As the wedding season is approaching, most of us probably have at least one wedding to attend without having a clue what to wear.
If you hadn’t guessed already, the majority of brides and wedding planners were screaming with joy as PANTONE’s colour of the year was announced. Yep, Rose Quartz and Serenity are both simply perfect wedding theme colours. Pinterest is already filled with tons of inspo featuring the pastel shades.
So, chances are, many brides will be incorporating these colours in wedding decorations, invitations etc, which means you can fit right into your surroundings. And, if you don’t have any weddings to attend this year, these dresses are still ideal for any other special event!
The best thing about these two soft shades is that they go with so many colors, making both of them really versatile. If you wish to go for an elegant look, stick to subtle makeup and delicate jewelry, like pearl earrings and simple rings. Though, if you want to make a statement with your outfit, go for a pair of fun heels with embellishment or patterns, and rock a colorful shade of lipstick.
So, you set your New Year’s Resolutions, but have you actually stuck to them so far? I know the struggle of not wanting to go to the gym… we have all been there.
For some of us, a motivation to go to the gym can definitely come in the form of showing off your new cute sportswear. Rose Quartz and Serenity are fantastic sportswear colours, especially for the spring and summer seasons (imagine doing yoga on the beach with this gear!).
These colours scream softness, so the rest of your look should match up to that. A top knot and a lip balm in a pink-y shade are all you really need for a natural gym look.
For the ultimate night in to treat yourself to a little me-time, some cute nightwear essentials are needed. Rose Quartz and Serenity are the perfect nightwear colours – because who doesn’t love soft, pastel-colored pyjamas?
Pair these essentials with your favourite sheet masks and fluffy slippers, while treating yourself to a manicure.
