Pantone declared colors for the year 2016. These colors are rose quartz and serenity.
The 2 colors define calmness and softness. Rose quartz is a shade of pink on the lighter note, but no, its not baby pink! This shade is a lighter-shinier version of baby pink. Serenity is a shade of blue, a calm serene shade, so the name serenity.
This is the first time in 15 years that Pantone has declared more than 1 color as its color of the year. These selections also denote gender equality on the basis of a pre-conceived notion of “pink for girls and blue for boys”
When asked why these colors were selected for 2016, people from Pantone said “mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses” , which is true seeing how soothing they are.
Here are some inspirations for styling using these colors.
Rose quartz suits in any manner you wear, be it those long dresses, short ones or even a good top. Style it with ease and comfort.
Serenity can be worn as a bridal outfit, or an outfit on any gala dinner. These colors will make you feel relaxed and toned down. See more happiness there 😀
2016 starts on a calmer note, and we would love to see how designers use these outfits, and see its use more in weddings!
