The trend forecasters at the Pantone Color Institute have named not one but two colors of the year for 2016, boldly predicting that pastels Rose Quartz and Serenity will win over our hearts in the year ahead. A softer take on color for 2016, for the first time, the blending of two shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity are chosen as the Pantone Color of the Year.
As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.

Pair a classic white lace-up, with louche work pants that break like a classic men’s suit hem. Next layer a tailored jacket or vest over a simple blouse. Keep accessories tonal and simple, and if you’re me, you’ll add a red lip for a feminine touch. Via Bazaar.
