For the first time, Pantone has released two colors as their Color of the Year.
“As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent,” writes pantone.com. “Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue.”
Welcome Rose Quartz and Serenity.
I’m loving their color choice. There’s something etherial and cozy about them—but with a modern and chic twist. Plus, with all the gloom coming our way, it’s nice to have some color choices that’ll refresh that black and grey wardrobe.
So where can you find these beauties in Old Pasadena? Look no further than below:
First up, is Scotch & Soda. This spot, located along Colorado Blvd., has a quirky yet modern collection of items. And one of my favorites in their lineup is this Super Soft Sweater in light pink. It’s got clean lines, a cozy interior, and comes in that etherial pink. Plus? It’s currently on sale for $48.
Next is an oversized boy shirt from Madewell. Crisp and slightly oversized, this shirt has a slit shirttail hem and comes in a waterfall blue—as close to resembling our serenity color of the year as you get.
And then there are these beauties: the Erickson Beamon Crystal Drop Earrings from Lou & Grey. The perfect pairing of Rose Quartz and Serenity, these dainty earrings are the best way to wear Pantone’s duo colors of the year—at the same time.
Lastly, shoes. Because, well. Shoes. J.Crew’s Cece Ballet Flats come in a “faded wisteria” that screams Serenity. With a cushioned insole, a rubber sole, and elasticized topline, you’ll never want to take these beauties off.
