Pink is indeed a feminine color, and the shade of Rose Quartz is described by Pantone as a “persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure”. The great thing about this shade of pink is how it is undeniably a great shade that’s wearable for any skin complexion from pale, fair, and even olive skin tones. Like fashion blogger Jane Aldridge, which has a pale complexion, you may opt for a Rose Quarts sweater that looks sweet and flattering your you and a quirky print skirt to show some playful vibe on your style. And for the brunette ladies out there, Rose Quartz emphasizes the beauty of your brown mane.

Rose Quartz is very versatile as it blends well with your classic office outfits giving you a feminine touch due to its soft and cotton candy-like hue. Like fashion blogger Mary Orton, opt for a Rose Quartz sweater to wear with your gray office blazer and straight leg pants to add some feminine vibe to your corporate look. The shade is very compatible with both dark neutral shades such as black and gray as well as royal shades of purple and pure shades of white and fellow pastel colors.

Once known as a masculine color, blue has now its gentle shade of Serenity that is described by the Pantone Color Institute as a “weightless and airy” color “like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.” This way, the color becomes gender flexible being both wearable for men and women. Like fashion blogger Jessica Ricks, look simple feminine and chic with a Serenity fit-and-flare dress with a floral embellished clutch and classic pumps that can take you from day to night.

The great deal about Serenity is that you can go all out with the color, whether in a form of outfit or simply accessories like scarves or bags. Like Kristina Bazan, you may think of wearing your Serenity lace blouse with a burgundy skirt to add some classic and passionate look on the airy color. Serenity is also wonderful for either a posh yet very feminine work outfit or just a slightly girly and very much springy casual everyday look by topping your casual outfit consists of knitted top and white jeans with a Serenity coat.

The wonderful blend of these Pantone Colors together is indeed refreshing and flexible for where the color blue is not limited to men and pink is not limited to women anymore. Like fashion blogger Jane Aldridge, you may go for a Serenity pair of denim jeans, typically faded and lighter than navy and blue, to wear with your Rose Quartz top to create a balanced romantic and casual cool looks. Indeed, the Pantone Colors of the year are stylish and expressive enough to wear that will bring some life to your typical street style.
