PANTONE Color of the Year 2016

Earlier today Pantone named the 2016 Color(s) of the Year . . . . . yes, you heard right, COLORS, as in 2! Introducing Rose Quartz 13-1520 and Serenity 15-3919.  Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.

In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumer's increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.

Serenity 15-3919

I'm so excited for this serine pairing.  I already have a few looks planned to incorporate them both.  How do you plan to pull of this color combo?
