Rosy and Serene for NYE 2015 December 15 2015

That’s right guys, Pantone has announced their colour of the year, and guess what? It’s not 1, but 2 equally beautiful shades.  Now pick your jaw up off the floor, as I introduce to you: Rose Quartz and Serenity, a delicious pastel pink and blue combo that will have you busting out your favourite Wham 8 track for some 80’s throwback.

So, why waste any time getting in on this trend- light up the NYE night in these dazzling shades and stay one step ahead of the gang.

 Pantone Color of the Year 2016 Rose Quartz and Serenity



  1. Trend Lite

Trends are great- they are! They keep us fresh and serve as a visual reflection of our social milieu. However, when you’ve lived long enough to look into your wardrobe and gasp thinking – “did I really put this on?” it can take a little coaxing to dive right into a new trend.

Let’s talk about this Valentino x Goop dress dotted in these cute little stars? With its classic silhouette, it serves as a great neutral foundation to layer colours on.  Rose Quartz will flatter any complexion- incorporate this rosy hue in your choice of bling

Serenity is always found in the form of a pair of Valentino Rock studs. In this look, the blue adds an unexpected twist this sweet as sugar NYE look. Tying everything together, opal ring which naturally combines both hues.

  1. Trend Confident

Feeling blue just took on a new meaning for 2016. Could anything exude more confidence than this Temperley London Jumpsuit? Perfectly serene in Serenity Blue, it works in total harmony with these rosy tones. Rose Quartz takes a little step backwards to let its partner in crime shine, creating a balanced look that’s representative of the upcoming year, but in classic shapes and textures that remain looking gorgeous forever more.

Rose gold, in case you have not yet noticed, is perhaps my favourite metal of all time. It’s soft pink hues dot this outfit in the jewelry paired with this look. Channeling old Hollywood, there is no shortage of bling here.  Champagne anyone?

  1. Trend Full Steam Ahead

Holy Jem and the Holograms Batman! If you understood that reference, than just maybe, you’re too old for this next one (like I am).  Ring in the New Year with rebellious youth in clashing pink and blue.  Find your inner rock star and go for it in this gorgeous pink crop and matching shorts.

Take on the new year by dancing the night away in these serenity blue Loeffler Randall stillettos and matching leather jacket. For the full rock star look go for the pink and the punked out blue eyeliner! A little 80’s, a little rock and roll but all ferocity!
