The fashion powers that be have spoken: The Pantone colour of the year 2016 has been announced and for the first time ever there’s two of them! This year Rose Quartz and Serenity are set to team up and take centre stage.
Used as stunning standalone shades or combined as a killer pastel pairing, these colours are designed to promote “mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses.”
Set to define design trends for the year to come, from stylish scatter cushions to lipsticks, winter coats and adorable baby clothes; here are a few of our favourite ways to work the shades of the year…
Rose Quartz & Serenity for Mummy
When it comes to styling the Pantone colours of the year for pregnancy, we have plenty of fashionable options to choose from. Dressing for this trend is all about layering up separate pieces in block colours of each shade. Try pairing our Blush Lace Maternity Cocktail Dress with our Powder Blue Natasha Cashmere Blend Coat. Or why not style our Chevron Print Maternity Dress with pink shoes, accessories and lipstick for a fresh spring look. You could even work the trend at bedtime by slipping on our Blue Polka Dot Nursing Nightie with your favourite fluffy pink slippers and dressing gown!
Rose Quartz & Serenity for Baby
Of course it’s not just you who’d look gorgeous in these pretty pastel shades…. Check out the Diana Award Collection – a beautiful new range of designer baby clothes available exclusively at Seraphine, in glorious pinks and blues and featuring the stunning Diana Pastel Tartan. Fall in love with pretty tartan baby dresses, soft cashmere cardigans and smart coats. And melt over adorable fleece-lined baby booties and charming tartan bonnets.
Rose Quartz & Serenity at Home
When combined in just the right way, Rose Quartz and Serenity harmonise in a room to create a space that’s calming and nostalgic with a surprisingly sleek and modern finish. They make a stunning choice for the nursery, and work wonderfully together in kitchens and bathrooms. When incorporating these shades into your home, Interior Designer Jared Sherman Epps suggests: “Let one colour take the lead and allow the other to act as an accent to create a serene but striking balance.”
Rose Quartz & Serenity in Beauty
This daring colour duo is sure to be a big hit in the beauty world. Sephora have already released their Pantone Universe inspired range complete with lipsticks in both creamy rose quartz and unexpected serenity. Both shades make for beautiful nail polishes, rose quartz is the perfect blush for a fair complexion, and we predict that this trend could even herald the return of retro blue eyeshadow.
