Trend Alert: Rose Quartz
Posted on 18 August 2016
Rose Quartz was named one of Pantone’s colours of the year, and as always, Pantone holds a strong influence over the fashion scene. Baby pinks, blushes, rose gold and of course, rose quartz are the perfect dash of colour to suit any season. In the words of Audrey Hepburn, “I believe in pink”. Not sure how you can pull off this trend without looking like a barbie doll? We show you how to style this pretty pastel shade with this week’s trend alert.
ALL PINK ALL THE TIME
The white out look was a huge trend last year, and as big of a style statement as head to toe white was, dare to step out in a head to toe baby pink look this season. Break up the look with subtle accessories. Silver and gold work well and we recommend the use of chrome belts, statement jewellery and strappy heels to show the delicacy of this colour.
PINK AND WHITE
Break up your pale shades by pairing your statement piece with white. White blazers over pink midi dresses are a winning combination for the work place. We also love feminine pink skirts paired with simple white singlets for an easy party look. These shades are fantastic if you love neutral makeup tones. You can also add white pumps or even a white handbag to your all pink look to break up the colour for a softer look.
PRETTY IN PASTELS
The other colour of the year named by Pantone is Serenity which is a pastel shade of blue. Want to be completely on trend? Try pairing the two winning colours together. Pair your favourite pastel pink tops with your favourite denim jeans or throw a serenity jacket over your pink dress to keep with this trend.
QUARTZ AND ONYX
Not a pretty in pink kind of girl? Why not pair your pastel shades with all your favourite black pieces for a bold statement. You can even offset your look by adding black heels to your all pink look or reverse the look by wearing your favourite LBD with an oversized quartz coat for a stunning work-ready winter look.
