PRETTY IN PASTEL: PANTONE COLORS OF THE YEAR ROSE QUARTZ AND SERENITY
Two is definitely better than one. PANTONE, the standardized color matching system, announced their Colors for 2016. For the first time the blending of two colors has been selected. Rose Quartz and Serenity. 2016 is looking pretty in pastel, indeed.
The pairing of warm, pale pink and cool, baby blue shades is said to represent balance, calmness, wellness, and relaxation. Leatrice Eisman, Director of Pantone Color Institute states: “Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warm embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.”
The Marsala craze is officially done. With having not only one, but two colors of the year, both in beauty and fashion, people are making ways to incorporate these softer hues.
The good news is that the two hues, although pastels, are easier to pull-off than the former bold colors of the year: Marsala, Radiant Orchid, and Emerald.
This doesn’t mean though that it is less stylish, the colors of the year are understated hues that can give as much character as the others. No need to worry about running out of ways to incorporate these hues to your outfit or jewelry this 2016.
This beautiful cool hue reminds us of everything about summer: the sky and the sea. It is pleasing to the eye, and next to white? This is probably the shade for us to look fresh this summer. Well, even after summer we are still going to wear serenity-colored pieces for sure!
The pretty soft-pink shade: Rose Quartz makes everything look prettier. It is “Persuasive yet gentle” - think flowers and sunset. This feminine and calming hue looks good on everyone. It is a classic color that anyone can wear.

Just like what Leatrice Eisman, Director of Pantone Color Institute said: “Colours this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves…With our culture still surrounded by so much uncertainty, we are continuing to yearn for those softer shades that offer a sense of calm and relaxation.”. Rose Quartz and Serenity are easy colors to wear, trust us.
