Pantone chose not one, but two colors for the Color of Year 2016 and this year they nailed it! I mean, they really nailed it. Serenity is a soft blue that is reminiscent of vintage 70’s jeans. Is it any wonder why I’m so excited about it. It’s a color that is going to be very popular in jeans come spring. I don’t know what the actual inspiration was behind the decision to make this a Color of the Year, but thanks to denim, this sort of blue is thought of as a neutral and goes with anything. On that note, how amazing is it that Pantone would come up with a second color like Rose Quartz. It’s complimentary to Serenity with it’s pale tint, but can definitely stand on it’s own. Together they make a gorgeous pairing and I can’t wait to see if these colors become more prominent this spring. If you can’t hold out that long, you don’t have to wait until 2016. With a little searching, you can find some great items in one or both colors. If you need some inspiration, just scroll down and take a look at some of these great finds that you can wear right now.
