Pantone Color of the Year: Rose Quartz and Serenity


The year of the pastel. Pantone saw a need for patience, calm, and peace in 2016 and thus selected rose quartz and serenity as there colors of the year for 2016.

“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.” – Pantone’s Executive Director Leatirce Eiseman

Let’s take a look at some of the wonderful ways you can include either or both colors into your style.

Hair: We know that bold is a big theme for 2016 in hair, but almost a conundrum so it natural and going back to basics. Here are a couple ways to embrace the trends for 2016 and the colors that will shape them.
Serenity (blue) is going to be huge in hair color this year. You can go bold with all over color, especially cute with a short Gatsby inspire bob. Or pick a subtle theme with highlight mixed in a blonde balayage, gorgeous on long wavy tresses. Or maybe something in between is more you style with large chunky layers of serenity, great on any cut.

Nails: The combinations of rose quartz and serenity nail style are countless. For a clean Monday – Friday look stick to short and sweet rose quartz nails. Want to spice up a bit, maybe add an accent nail in serenity or a very modern geometric print with both. Coffin nails are the new long nail must have and how splendid would a set of be in serenity with a little dazzle, for our fashion forward ladies.

Make-Up: Rose quartz will be the star here, a perfect shade for eyeshadows, blushes, and lipsticks. Great on all skin tones, anyone will find a favorite in this shade. You can also play this one up and go bold or keep it simple and neutral, let your style guide how you wear it.

Wardrobe: We will see both rose quartz and serenity throughout our favorite stores. You can go casual, ultra-trendy or black tie with either color and they will pair well together. Remember it is all about making the colors work for your style, not bending to them.
