Earlier this year Pantone revealed it's colors of the year for 2016 to be Rose Quartz & Serenity blue. This beautiful soft pastel pink and whimsical blue are inspiring dreamy and romantic fashion for Spring and Summer. There are only two things you need to know for effectively styling these colors- read on to stay in the know while on the go!

Mix & Match

Opt for solid colored items. These sweet feminine colors easily stand alone and look even better when mixed and matched together. A pair of tailored Rose Quartz slacks mixed with a Serenity blue blazer will give you a polished yet enchanting look. If black is more your color, try adding a dash of pastel via accessories; chunky heels, a peek of a scarf, raw gem jewelry. Incorporate these colors into your dark muted Winter wardrobe for an updated and current look. 

Think Like A Romantic

This Spring billowing sleeves, ruffles, long flowing skirts- free flowing and swirling in the wind paired with fitted counterparts make for a stunning outfit. Allow these colors to be your centerpiece, blend in neutrals and nudes to keep the colors from competing for attention. Rose Quartz looks stunning among an all black wardrobe, integrate a feminine skirt with a modest black top and heels for an empowering ensemble. 

How easy was that? Pantone's 2016 colors of the year are reminiscent of cotton candy sunsets and bubble gum swirls- yet the fashion molding these colors is empowering, prolific, and influential.
