2016’s Color of the Year – Rose Quartz!

by Mischaela Advani | @thebcblonde

Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada famously snipped “Florals for Spring,  how innovative!” It would seem every spring the fashion forecast brings us floral print after floral print , but there’s a new Spring trend in town…rose quartz.


Not only is rose quartz the Pantone color of the year for 2016, it’s  also one of the hottest and trendiest colors for Spring 2016. The best part about this light blush tone is that it looks good on everyone. Every skin tone, every hair color is complemented by this light, cool pink shade. Now that you’re up on this trendy hue, let’s look at a few ways to wear rose quartz so that you can begin building your wardrobe of accessories for 2016 in this pastel and put together shade.

Wear a rose quartz bag:

We are loving the mini bag trend seen on the runways in recent seasons, and the fervor and demand for these gorgeous little minis is at a fever pitch! To keep the petite pink bag from looking too dainty, pair it with black solids and textures like leather and black lace.

Wear it as a statement piece:

A furry faux fur shrug, wrap, or coat is a cool nod to the 90s and so on trend.  You can add a statement piece in rose quartz to really maximize how you’re wearing this must have color. A bit more sophisticated than baby pink, it looks glam with all black looks or beige and white solids. Make the rest of your outfit light on detail, you’ll want your faux fur wrap or shrug to be your exclamation point!

Put pink in unexpected places:

A pair of slightly unisex looking gladiators gets the glam treatment when you buy them in rose quartz. The perfect tone on tone pedicure is all you need to complete the look. This unexpected and refreshing color can be treated like a neutral when it comes to shoes and bags, so don’t be afraid to don it with your orange sundress or a cool white and blue short and tank ensemble.

Wear it as a full outfit!

Monochrome and monotone looks are all the rage among the fashion elite. Rock a head to toe rose quartz look to be deliciously on trend and cutting edge. Buy up pieces in rose quartz and mix them in with your wardrobe staples, so even when the color falls off the fashion radar and a new hue takes hold…you’ll still be looking pretty in pink.
