Pantone announces its “color of the year” for 2016. And, in an unprecedented move, the color authority selected two colors: Rose Quartz and Serenity, shades of pale pink and baby blue.

pantone colors of the year

Pantone explains that its color of the year is “a symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.”

Rose Quartz is described as, “a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure,” while Serenity is “weightless and airy…bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.”

Easy to pair and wear, shop the trend now or – for those looking forward to spring, “wear later” options for the upcoming season.
