Pantone just released their 2016 Color of the Year and for the first time, two colors made the cut! Expect to see plenty of Rose Quartz (pale pink) and Serenity (baby blue) this upcoming year. Pantone was influenced to blend two colors together due to recent societal changes with gender equality.

“In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design,” Pantone’s website states. “This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumer’s increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.”

“Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.”

In case you don’t know what to pair with Rose Quartz and Serenity, Pantone suggests silver or hot brights for more “splash and sparkle.”
