It was hard not to notice the feminine light pink shade that dominated the spring 2016 runways. Dubbed rose quartz by Pantone, it was named one of the colors of the year. At Delpozo (above, left), we saw a rose quartz gown adorned with sheer panels and a thick black hem, while at Emilia Wickstead (above, middle) an embellished striped skirt and matching blush top marched down the runway. And at J.W. Anderson (above, right), the designer showcased a head-to-toe matching baby pink tunic and pants.
Not only is the soft pink hue the perfect way to introduce color into your tired winter wardrobe, but it can also work as a neutral.
