Pantone announced that the colors of the year 2016 are Rose Quartz and Serenity. These two pastel colors are playful and very natural, just like cotton candy skies. So, how do you think you can wear it this spring? If you avoid pastel colors on your clothes, try them on your accessories. Both colors are perfect for accessories this spring and will pop among the sea of black. Not only will you appear like a trendsetter but you will stand out!

Here are our top three picks for accessories for spring 2016 that dominate the color of the year:


They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but we think that they meant handbags. Purses and clutches are the perfect way to include the color of the year into your wardrobe. If you wear neutrals, your handbag will be your stand out piece. If you are more daring, try a monochromatic look; you can wear an all rose colored outfit and match it with a rose quartz bucket bag. The best part about these colors is that they can come in any style of handbag you prefer; cross body bag, bucket bag, or your basic satchel bag. It fits your personal style and completes your trendy look.

Serenity color in a necklace is the perfect accent color with neutral colors such as white, creme, and grey. A rose quartz colored necklace can be worn with matching pastel colors like mint, yellow, and lavender. This pastel color family all looks great worn together. You can also turn up the volume by adding gold to the rose and serenity colors in bracelets. Since both the rose and serenity colors complement each other, do not be afraid to wear them both at the same time. You’ll look as sweet as cotton candy.
