Pantone 2016 Colors of The Year
Hello Darlings, As every year nears its end the design world awaits the big reveal when Pantone declares a particular color as “Color of the Year.” The annual prediction plays a major part in designs of products from fashion, car companies, interior decor, cosmetics to you name it. In a manner that fashion season dictates the fashion trends; Pantone defines the key color trend for the year! Therefore for us ladies, that one color ought to make an appearance in the wardrobe in some form of a capacity. As a glorified neutral tones kind of a gal I usually introduce color through accessories. In particular my love falls for beautiful eyewear.
Now you must wonder what is Pantone? It is a main standardized color system across the globe and its color intelligence is omnipresent in the design world to create color palettes for works. Gently said, Pantone is color! Twice a year the company hosts a secret meeting in one of Europe’s capitals. For two days various presentations and debates take place and upon those meetings the color is chosen for the following year.
According to Pantone, “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.” These color choices were directly influenced by ones search for mindfulness and well-being as a remedy to modern day stress.
Between my love for intricately designed shoes and eyewear, I feel that it’s all I need to explore trends. While my wardrobe consists of classic pieces in neutrals, my vast collection of footwear and sunglasses cover the basis for a much needed pops of color. In particular I must confess, my obsession is with Miu Miu sunglasses, nothing comes close to my love for their intricate design and color selection. Their sunglasses are like works of art that are probably some of the most unique on the market. Each pair is delicately decorated with glitters and jewels and comes in avant-garde shapes that are artistic but suitable for a modern woman. It’s the small touches that make the greatest impact when it comes to dressing!
Aside from beautiful frame design, the most integral part of sunglasses is the quality of the actual lenses. A good lens will ensure that you have the best possible vision while protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays. They will also eliminate blinding glare, reduce brightness and give you a true color perspective. Therefore sunglasses are not just an accessory but rather a necessity.

With spring just weeks ahead, it’s a little something to consider.
