How to Wear Pantone's 2016 Color of The Year

Sunday, December 13, 2015

Since we're having Spring in December (thank G-d!), how apropos is it to talk about Pantone's soothing new color(s) of the year, which are not one, but two amazing hues that not only coordinate really well together, but blend beautifully too. We've moved from an era of color blocking to ombre-ing and color meshing. And these two hues are as reminiscent of warm weather as sand against sea, a summer sunset, or a bouquet of blush roses silhouetted against the sky.

Warm and cool? Connection and wellness? A soothing sense of order and peace? That sounds really good to me...not to mention these are some of my all time favorite colors. Clearly, (and thankfully) we will be seeing a lot of this color combination at many 2016 Spring weddings.
But how can we wear these colors right now? As much as I hope that we may just skip winter this year, I highly doubt it. But yes, you CAN wear these summery colors currently, and throughout the next few months.

With the advent of creamy, pastel outerwear available, why not brighten up the gloomiest of days with soft rose quartz sweater, poncho or coat? For dressy occasions, a tulle skirt in serenity will look amazing with a rose quarts sweater and shoes.  Or just accessorize with a cozy hat and scarf, a cool clutch, or an off-season manicure in one of these hues.
Below I've chosen some of my favorite pieces to add to and update your wardrobe with Pantone's color(s) of the year.
