Dance into the New Year with this Vivacious and Appealing Rose Quartz The 2016 color of the year, PANTONE 13-1520
Encourages us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. Peach Echo, a spirited tangerine orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward. “Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Peach Echo is an orange with a lot of depth to it,”
“Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, peach echo marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a lush, magnetic hue that emanates exciting energy.”
"Colors this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves."

Colors this season encompass cultural and gender norms.
Vivid brights give way to excitement and optimism, though stability in this 2016 wedding trend season’s palette.
For Spring 2016 there are no distinctions in color choices between the men’s and women’s collections, both focus on a desire to breathe and reflect, then play.
The soothing, calming nature of Rose Quartz, a subtle tone conveys compassion and warmth. Like a serene sunset, flushed cheek or english rose, Rose Quartz reminds us to reflect on our surroundings during spring and summer months.
We have been in love with orange for several seasons now. Coming to the fore this year is, Peach Echo, a shade that evokes warmth and accessibility. It is a welcome addition to the playful orange family.
Then we have, Serenity and the name says it all, it comforts and calms, bringing a feeling of hope for the future. A pearlest blue, Serenity provides us with a naturally connected sense of space.
Snorkel Blue plays in the navy family, but with a happier, more energetic context. The name alone implies your summer holiday needs to be booked.
Whilst the majority of the Spring/Summer palettes trend toward calmness, a few welcome diversions from the theme offer a welcome contrast. Buttercup reveals a shining beacon automatically making its wearer happier.
A pale shade of aqua brings subtle greens, Limpet Shell is clear, clean and just pretty. Suggesting clarity and freshness, it's crisp, it's deliberate, it's mindful tranquility.
As in most any season, the need for neutrals are important. Subtle lilac undertone in, Lilac Gray, adds a refreshing edge to this classic gray shade.
The high energy Fiesta is excitement, free-spirited exploration to the unknown. Conversley, a strong and fiery, yellow-based red, the vivid Fiesta is the calming, softer nature of this season’s palette.
A transitional color is with us again through the seasons, Iced Coffee as another strong neutral for the season. With its natural earthy feel, the softness of Iced Coffee creates a stable grounding when combined with the rest of this season’s palette.
Green Flash calls on its wearer to explore, push the boundaries and escape the mundane, radiating openness which works well with the rest of the palette in quite an unusual way. The popularity of this hue is representative of grounding us and bringing us back to nature.
