Pantone’s Pretty Pastels: How to Wear 2016’s New Color Duo

Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue. Rather than dressing like 2016 is one big baby shower, I’ve got your badass go-to guide on how to pull off Pantone’s new soft, sweet, and beautifully feminine color duo.

Butter Nail Lacquer

Pantone's MAC Rose Quartz LipglossPump up the shine to your smooch with this warm, creamy pink gloss. Queen of all lip cosmetic lines (IMO), MAC’s Lipglass in “Angel” will give you a sleek finish on a full face of makeup or a fresh, girly touch if you’re going au naturel. $15.Laura Mercier Pink Mosaic Shimmer Bloc for Pantone's Rose QuartzWith Laura Mercier being one of the only cosmetic lines I dare put on my sensitive skin, I’m obsessing over this perfect blush combination of rosey pinks. The light-reflecting properties of the Pink Mosaic Shimmer Bloc will brighten your eyes and amp up your overall glow. $44. 

Free People's Pantone Rose Quartz Tunic

While this rose shade is a bit more muted, the soft and warm pastel hue is absolutely welcome in the rose quartz color scheme. The “Wildest Dreams” lightweight tunic from Free People has the lace details and ruffled sleeves every sweetheart needs right now (including me). $128. Steve Madden ballet flat in Pantone's Rose Quartz

Fight the frumpy flats stigma with these chic and preppy puppies by Steve Madden. These suede ballet flats are absolutely ridiculous and probably the biggest must-have on this list.  Pre-order now! $69.95.

 Pantone's Serenity in Rebecca Minkoff "Finn" Convertible Leather Clutch

The strap is adjustable and convertible, so you can carry it as a clutch, too. $195.Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick for Pantone's Serenity MakeupCompletely waterproof and flake-free, Bobbi Brown’s Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Iced Blue is my favorite way to wear Pantone’s blue shade as a makeup trend. Shading and defining your eyes with this frosty blue stick makes being an ice queen look like it’s a good thing. $29.Pantone's Serenity and Rose Quartz CuffI found out about designer Kendra Scott through Rocksbox, a website that gives members unlimited access to jewelry rentals by top designers. As a Rocksbox “#ItGirl,” I had fallen in love with the glamorous simplicity of Kendra Scott’s jewelry, and I know this cuff is the only proof I need to get you to do the same. The “Erica” Cuff exemplifies Pantone’s 2016 duo in its chicest, purest way. $110.

May your 2016 be filled with cotton candy hues seen not only during pretty sunsets or spun on a paper cone, but more importantly- found in your closet!
