Fashion Welcomes Pink and Blue Back from the 80’s

The Pantone color(s) of 2016 are Rose Quartz and Serenity. Here are a few examples of how fashion welcomes pink and blue back from the 80’s!

Pantone offers “a symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.

For the first time Pantone introduces two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity as the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016. 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.”

Rose quartz, a beautiful shade of pink.

    Love these colors. Pink seems to be flattering on most ladies. I get all excited when I see you are doing a fashion piece. You are so good at it and it is my escape.

    These are lovely shades. I wonder if these are reminiscent of the 80s when the “preppy style” of penny loafers and oxfords were so popular? I miss those days when dressing for work was like putting on a uniform!

    If we wear clothes in these pretty pastels, will we look like those women?
