Pantone Colour of 2016 Is Here!

By  | 

Pantone the colour experts have announced their colour of 2016 and it is….drumroll please…..Rose Quartz and Serenity. These are nothing but very pale shades of pink and blue. Now these colours might seem too pastel and too summery for the otherwise bright and vibrant Indian wedding scenes…but if you are the type of couple who likes to go with trends then read on, we have plenty of inspiration for you!

For the men

Rose quartz is just the right amount of pink for men. For your reception, pair a simple blue shirt with a Rose Quartz blazer or you could go for Serenity coloured pants with rose shirt. For a formal evening like the Sangeet Night, go for a white shirt with light serenity coloured suit and Rose quartz bowtie. For traditional wear, try and get a Kurta in rose quartz and get it embellished with serenity coloured buttons or embroidery.
