Color of the Year 2016- Rose Quartz AND Serenity

Hello my lovelies, I hope you’re having a fabulous new year. My year is pretty good so far. I hit a couple of bumps when my computer drank Snapple. But after a few weeks of scrambling around, I’m back! YAY! So I’m really excited to start this year off and announce the color of the year. Drumroll please….dun dun da dah….it’s TWO colors!!!

PANTONE 13-1520 Rose Quartz and PANTONE 15-3919 SerenityWGSN_PantoneColour_2016-1024x576.jpg

It’s the first time ever that Pantone decided on TWO colors of the year.

Following the events of the last few years with certain groups of parents and others pushing for a more genderless society (ie…no more boy/girl dedicated toy aisles, gender-free clothes labels, etc), Pantone jumped on the bandwagon and announced these two colors.

But just wait…ROSE QUARTZ isn’t for girls, and SERENITY blue isn’t for boys.

You’re going to see a lot of pink clothes for guys and more blue options for the ladies. So be prepared for more genderless fashion this year.

I was a little shocked at this announcement, but I’ve had a few months to get used to the idea and now I’m really excited. I personally like a little pink on guys, and blue happens to be one of my favorite colors in my wardrobe. Soft blues bring out my pink shade and are super flattering on my spring complexion.

The palette this year is a SOFT POP, with pastels mixed throughout.

I’m calling it.

Since we’re going for a soft pastel year with calmer colors and blurring the lines between gender, I’m predicting SILVER and EGGSHELL WHITE as the color accessories this year. Silver is calmer than a rosy gold, so opt for your silver and white gold necklaces during this winter and spring. Leave the rose and yellow gold for the summer and fall.

Well, I love a good challenge. I’m going to try and make the guys in my house wear a little pink this year. Oh yes, that’s going to happen. And I’m going to see if the girls embrace blue like me. That might be a little harder, they fiercely love their pinks and purples.

Here are some examples of Rose Quartz and Serenity that I’ve already scouted out! 🙂
