Just in time for the holiday shopping season, Pantone, the authority and influencer in all things color, has unveiled its shade of the upcoming year. Rose Quartz & Serenity is sure to be in during 2016. And if past years of color unveilings by Pantone serve as any proof, these shades will dominate everything from fashion & accessories, to the colors walls are painted.
It’s the first time that Pantone has featured a combination of two shades. The company first started naming its color of the year in 1980.
“Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace,” commented Pantone on its website.
Pantone, meanwhile, showcased a number of color pairings the two shades go well with – noting they work with other mid-tones like shades of pink and yellow, rich browns, and greens and purples.
Some great possibilities are available with these shades – especially if you make them shine. Take for example this outfit supermodel Kendall Jenner wore.
