Friday Fashion File: Pantone Colour Of The Year 2016

In Clothing, Fashion, Fashion & style, Trends by wR23Fs2Sqi13 Comments

Happy Friday! I’m sure you have already heard this but if you haven’t, Pantone has officially named Rose Quartz and Serenity as 2016’s Color Of The Year. Yup, I said two. This marks the first time the company has chosen a blend of two colours. Pantone describes the colours as an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and a cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.

These two shades are more subdued than this years Pantone color of Marsala or 2014’s Radiant Orchid. I have to admit, I prefer these two colours combined, as I found Marsala a little to rusty red for my taste. And even though I don’t wear a ton of pink, I do think Rose Quartz is a nice dusty pale pastel pink. And Serenity reminds me of a soft sky/baby blue. I think both colours alone or combined would look good on just about anyone.

What do you think? Better than last years pick?

  1. Hi Jackie, what a wonderful post! I love the new Pantone colours and the fact that they are two this year! I liked the Marsala a lot, but it is a bit too rusty red for me as well 🙂 These two new colours are amazing and easy to wear and combine, especially when having all these beautiful garments and accessories you shared with us! Wonderful post!!

  2. I am so happy to see
    Rose Quartz as the colour for 2016! I am such a fan of pink. Your selections are on point… them all.
