Pantone released not one, but two colors for the upcoming 2016 year. Rose Quartz, a baby-pink hue, and Serenity, not shockingly, a shade of baby blue. Does this mean there’s another year of babies in our futures? Nah—we just think it’s time to bring the pastels back. We know a pastel color can read as preppy, or make you feel like a kid again (in a bad way). So, we are here to help you figure out how to bring the new Pantone colors into your wardrobe in an edgier way. Luckily, there are already so many things to buy in those colors that you can start building up for the new year now. Grab items that you wouldn’t expect in a pastel, like maybe a new winter coat or boot. Ease into these colors with a iPhone case, or maybe a pair of sunglasses. By 2016, you’ll be in love like we already are.
