When Pantone announces their annual Color of the Year, you can bet it’s going to be the next big thing in fashion. For 2016 they predicted not one, but two hues: A pale pink called “Rose Quartz,” and a soft periwinkle dubbed “Serenity.” Stay ahead of the curve by adding one of these on-trend items to your wardrobe.
