As a bit of a colour geek I always look forward to seeing the shades that Pantone decides are most worthy of our attention each season.
While my wardrobe may be consistently black, with a bit of white, grey and red thrown in, it’s nice to know which colours are going to prominent enough for me to consider changing it up a bit.
Spring 2016’s hottest shades, as decided by Pantone, are Rose Quartz and Serenity.
In non-colour-geek-speak this translates as baby/powder/pale/pastel pink and blue.
I’m not known for my love of pastels, they don’t generally do anything other than make me look ill, but there are exceptions.
I find that blush, when it errs on the nude rather than sickly pink side, works wonders for making me look tanned.
Lilac and mint are absolute no gos, but pale denim blue doesn’t look too offensive on me.
The key to pastels for me is looking super tanned and blonde, but I’m sure the more pale and interesting out there won’t have any issues with this season’s pantones.
From my moodboard you can see I’m loving the rose quartz options out there slightly more than the serenity pieces, but I have to say that the blue Isabel Marant shirt keeps catching my eye.
Favourites on my pantone wish list are most definitely the Chanel pearl earrings and the rose quartz Burberry Kensington crochet trench coat.
