12 Ways to Add Rose Quartz & Serenity to Your Wardrobe - Pantone's 2016 Colors of the Year!

For the the first time ever, Pantone has chosen TWO colors of the year: 2016 is the year of Rose Quartz and Serenity!

You'll definitely be adding these colors to your wardrobe in the new year and lucky you, we've got you covered with several Lion Brand yarn selections: Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® in Glacier; Wool-Ease® in Seaspray; Heartland® in Denali; Vanna's Choice® in Pink; Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® in Blossom.

Rose Quartz is a beautiful light pink and Serenity is a periwinkle blue. Both of these colors are gentle and calming but don't be fooled into thinking these are just for babies! From the Pantone web site:

"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. Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace."

Alone or together, Rose Quartz and Serenity are great ways to add pops of color to any grown-up wardrobe. And, even though this combination is traditionally reserved for springtime, icy blue is a great way to create a modern look for winter!
