Winter Pastels: Rose Quartz

Gone are the days where it is only acceptable to wear pastels during the spring months. But don’t take my word for it…take Pantone’s word for it – “the world-renowned authority on color.” The verdict is in and Rose Quartz (pale pink) and Serenity (periwinkle) have officially been named the 2016 colors of the year. For more about that, read last week’s Wish List Wednesday post. Anyway, consider this article your permission slip to wear all of the cotton candy colored outfits you can come up with.

Pantone’s big announcement was very exciting news to me. There is something so blissful about pastels. While you’ve probably begun to notice candy-colored shades in all shapes and forms at your favorite stores, I delved right into the trend with none other than a Rose Quartz cape coat! Crafted out of a luscious microsuede, this piece will sweeten up any soft-hued ensemble. I paired this cape with winter white flare jeans and added a hint of glam through my accessories. The iridescent earrings and glitter pumps popped nicely against the pink, and the metallic clutch brought the whole look together.
