Farfetch: Spring 2016 Pantone Colors

Farfetch: Spring Pantone Colors

Hello! When I spotted the Spring 2016 Pantone colors, I immediately fell in love. The theme for the selected colors this season is "a transporting and transformative canvas." The ten cheery colors are said to "transcend cultural and gender norms." Out of the ten colors, I'm particularly fond of "rose quartz," "serenity," and "buttercup." The colors are relaxed yet inspire a sense of sophistication as well as happiness.

I've already been styling outfits around these colors in my head so when Farfetch reached out to me and asked if I'd like to participate in a blogger challenge featuring the Spring 2016 Pantone colors, I jumped right on the opportunity. My challenge was to style an outfit featuring a few of the Spring 2016 Pantone colors with Farfetch merchandise.

For the outfit, I selected my three Spring 2016 Pantone favorites: "rose quartz", a romantic light pink color, "serenity", a soothing shade of blue, and "buttercup", a lively burst of yellow. These colors all emit a mood that feels distinctly spring and remind me of the blossoming flowers around us outside. Keeping these colors and Farfetch's designer merchandise in mind, I was inspired to create a whimsical yet sophisticated outfit (featured above.) This outfit could take me from a lunch date to an interview to class.

I've been drawn to shades of pink recently so I decided to focus on "rose quartz" for the basis of the outfit. While browsing Farfetch, I fell in love with this feminine Halston Heritage skater dress. Of course, spring sometimes requires a light jacket over a dress like this one so I layered up on the "rose quartz" pink and styled the dress with this classic Theory blazer.

I wanted to incorporate a multi-color piece with this look to pull together the Spring 2016 Pantone colors that I selected for this outfit. When I stumbled upon these quirky Sophia Webster "Riko" mules, I knew that I had found the piece that would tie my several selected colors together. The various pops of pastel colors including "buttercup" yellow in the shoes would allow me to effortlessly style a "buttercup" yellow Dolce & Gabbana daisy necklace and sophisticated Saint Laurent handbag in "serenity" blue with the look.
