There’s perhaps no color as calming as light, sky blue, making it the absolute perfect color to wear and surround yourself with when you’re stressed and need a little serenity in your life. Thankfully, this hue is everywhere thanks to PANTONE®’s 2016 Fashion Color Report naming Serenity Blue as one of their two colors of the year, meaning this shade has been trending for months in fashion and home decor. Coincidentally, it also pairs beautifully with the other color of the year, Rose Quartz, meaning both of these soothing shades rightfully deserve a place in your closet!
What’s so unique about this particular shade of blue is that it’s not a true blue, but rather a beautiful blend of pale blue and lavender, like the lovechild of shades like periwinkle and cornflower. It’s soft and feminine, yet still strong and vibrant. It’s the perfect color to wear on a dress, separate, or DIY accessory, meaning these sewing patterns and other projects are completely on trend. Fill your closet with your favorite of these patterns, take a deep breath, and be carried away by a renewed sense of serenity!
