Best Ways to Wear the Color of the Year 2016  

This year color giant Pantone shocked the fashion and design world by selecting not just one color of the year, but two. The stunning pastel duo of Serenity and Rose Quartz offer an updated take on the pink and blue so familiar in nursery decor. Get our tips on the best ways to wear Pantone’s Color of the Year in 2016.

Serenity and Rose Quartz in Fashion

These light, flirty colors are perfect springtime hues. We always love a cute day dress or a maxi in a bold print. Rose quartz pairs super well with grey hues. We love the idea of adding a rose quartz toned blouse under a grey blazer or lightening up a gray work dress with a sweater or a belt in the pastel pink hue.

To wear Serenity, try pairing the pastel blue with tawny tones, from camel to almond. This is a sophisticated and sweet idea for year-round looks. Serenity also looks classic with white and even silver tones, so aim for a patterned dress that combines the two.

Serenity and Rose Quartz in Makeup

Sephora made it super easy for you to add Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year to your beauty box with a limited-edition makeup kit that pairs Serenity, Rose Quartz, and complementary tones. We recommend trying metallic versions of these pastels on the eyes, or brightening up spring lips with a pale pink gloss. For outré makeup effects, there’s even a baby blue lip hue.

Serenity and Rose Quartz in Hair

It takes a bold fashionista to try pastel hues in her hair, but the rewards could be big. Update blonde or grey hair with subtle pastel hues. Think Sienna Miller or Kelly Osborne. Since pale colors can be tricky to get right at home, it’s critical to see a stylist for this color refresh.

Serenity and Rose Quartz in Nails

A mani-pedi is the perfect way to show off a statement color like Serenity or Rose Quartz. Pantone suggests the two colors be paired together, and what better way to do that than an ombre effect or an updated French manicure? Other blended nail art looks include stripes, dots, decals, or geometric patterns. If you aren’t a talented nail artist, you can always see a manicurist at a Miami day spa.

Serenity and Rose Quartz in Accessories

As even their very names suggest, these two colors suggest inner peace and relaxation. Whether you choose a matte, metallic, or glossy, serenity and rose quartz accessories are a great way to add a splash of on-trend color to a playful or polished look. Pantone recommends pairing these colors with mid-tones, especially green, purple, and brown. But all hues of pink and yellow also go well with rose quartz and serenity. If you want more of a pop, throw in some neons or silver.
