How to Wear Rose Quartz: One of Pantone’s Colour of the Year


Rose Quartz is a pink that looks to be a mix of peach and blush.  Over the years I’ve had a love-hate relationship with pink.  I considered pink too Barbie and removed the colour from my wardrobe. Over the past year, I’ve realized I’ve been wearing more and more pink, and right now I’m having a moment with rose quartz.  

If you’re wanting to get inspiration on how to wear these colours, I’ve put together some tips on how this hue can look good on you. This post will focus on rose quartz. You can see how to wear serenity here.

It wasn’t until recently that pale pink or Rose Quartz took the forefront of fashion and invaded retailers everywhere. This soft, sweet and sophisticated colour can be found in all forms of fashion from blazers to rain boots and everything in-between. Not to mention, this feminine colour is one that you can wear in any setting.

The best colours to team your rose quartz pieces is with whites, greys, pale blues and charcoals. Look for sleek lines and simple silhouettes. Also try Pair rose quartz with flattering colours that look good on you.  Rose quartz may not be everyone’s colour but it works well with a lot of other shades. 

If you find wearing a dress or rose quartz top washes your complexion out, add a bold coloured necklace to add colour and contrast. Rose gold and copper accessories will contrast beautifully with rose quartz. Even pearls will add a romantic and feminine feel to the colour.

Choose rose quartz accessories.  Rose quartz is gorgeous in accessories, like in handbags, jewellery, shoes, belts and other leather goods.  Instead of buying rose quartz clothing, look to adding it in your accent pieces.

If you’re looking to glam it up, add metallic and other shiny material! Both colours go great with a pop of silver or gold.
