S/S 2016 Trends: Rose Quartz And Serenity: The Pantone Colours of 2016


Call me optimist, but here I am bringing spring a tad earlier this year. When I think of spring, I think of pretty pastel shades that are perfect to spruce up our spring wardrobe; who doesn't like to dress up in candy colours that look good enough to eat?! And despite being a few months away from spring just yet, pastel blues, pinks and even yellows are having a major moment in fashion already and I think we can thank Pantone (authority for all things colour) for that.

We leave behind the rich tones of 2015’s Marsala and for the first time Pantone welcomes two shades as the Pantone Colour of the Year 2016Rose Quartz and Serenity. This is for sure a softer take on colour as joined together these shades establish an essential balance. The mix of a ‘warmer embracing rose’ and the ‘cooler tranquil blue’ reflects connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace according to Pantone, and I couldn't agree more. 

Rose Quartz is an influential yet soft tone that expresses sympathy and a sense of tranquillity. As seen all over the catwalks for Spring/Summer 2016, this can be implemented in both fashion and beauty. Try this gentle tone on cheeks for a flushed finish or with pinky accessories to finish off an outfit. 

Serenity - inspired by the blue skies- is light and vivacious and the perfect antidote to modern day stresses bringing feelings of relief and relaxation. Believe it or not, blue eyeshadow is making a comeback and whilst I wasn't sure at first, seeing it on so many models has made the colour grow on me. Blue pastel nails are also here to stay and that is one trend I can get on board with.

Woolen Coat*: here // Striped Crochet Jumper: George at Asda (here) // Boyfriend Jeans: Matalan (here)
Rose Gold Trainers: Superga (here) // Bag: Matalan (old) // Sunglasses*: Firmoo (here)
For this look, I wanted to implement the best of both worlds to achieve a fun and comforting look that can work just as well for the end of winter as take me right through spring. I don’t have many Rose Quartz items in my wardrobe, but an oversized pink coat and rose gold shoes are close enough and really proves you don’t need brand new items to make this (or any!) trend work. Additionally, what could be closer to Serenity than light wash jeans and a blue stripy top?! Don’t forget the lace bit there because you know I am all about the lace (no pun intended) and also the sunglasses which are so affordable yet so great!

What do you think of these shades together? Are you excited for Spring? Let me know below!
Thanks for reading beauties!

  14. I know I say this over and over again, but I truly think this is your best look yet. It's certainly not one of the fanciest, but there's something about it that brings your feminine side out even more. Perhaps it's the pink colour, or the way you paired the jeans with the shoes, but I think this was absolute genius doing.

    I'm hopeful for Spring too. I was supposed to take a few outfit photos today, and it's raining mad so I'm just crossing the fingers that it stops soon. I like Spring because it's still a bit cold and not hot at all.

    I think you look absolutely beautiful and I love your coat. It has to be my favourite of all time!

  31. I can't wait for Spring either Pam! I've been doing the same and wearing brighter shades, to get me in the Spring spirit lol. This look is gorgeous on you though, I love the coat. Even though it's bright the tones are soft, which is what I love.

  39. I absoluetly adore this look. Although pastel tones are related to spring, I can't help to love them even more during winter, why? beccause they look so pristine and delicate during the colder months, don't you think? Oh! The rose gold sneakers are FAB!!!

    In fact I have been looking for a good pink coat for spring into summer.
    A trench style.

    I am a firm believer that any gal can wear a shade of pink & it will make her look and feel GORGEOUS!
