Rose Quartz and Serenity or PANTONE 13-1520 and PANTONE 15-3919 form a harmonious pairing of pretty pastel shades that is symbolic of our changing times. The choice to have two colors of the year is a befittingly bold move for the New Year and an ode to fluidity in sexuality that is much more wearable than the rainbow, it would seem.

This combination of pretty pink and soft blue perfectly matches light, flowing fabrics and feminine patterns and silhouettes without being too girly because the blue balances it out. Think lace, chiffon, sheer cotton, florals, dots, collarbone-baring necklines, small waists and full skirts.

At the same time, because these colors are effortlessly feminine, they also lend a pleasant twist to harder, edgier fabrics, patterns or silhouettes. Get those suit jackets, shift dresses, plaid button-downs or t-shirts in a light pink or blue instead of the usual neutrals for a refreshing take on masculine basics.
