2016 Fashion Trends + Scandinavian Fashion


January's Fashion Forum is all about the 2016 trends specifically pantone colors of the year and Scandinavian style.

The speakers were Pam Qui
ñones of L'Officiel Manila, the Philippine edition of the Paris based fashion magazine and Philippa Andren, a fashion consultant involved with L'Officiel Manila's styling team. 

First they discussed why Rose Quartz and Serenity were chosen as pantone colors of the year.

For the first time, there are two pantone colors of the year namely Rose Quartz and Serenity. Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and sense of composure. It is a weak color of it's own so Serenity was added. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times. Pantone wanted a color or colors that would balance off all the negative events that are happening in our society.

Rose Quartz and Serenity makes people calm and relaxed. Greens, Purples, Rich Browns and all shades of Yellow and Pink compliment these two colors. If you want to add sparkle and splash, add silver or hot brights.

Pam and Philippa also shared their views on Scandinavian style which would take over 2016. Rather than a specific look, Scandivian style is a concept, a way of life. It's effortless and comfortable.

Small embellished bags, minimalist  bags and solo earring were some of the accessories trend that were mentioned.For the shoes, boots are in. White and or pointed boots to be precise. 

Simple style tip for a stylish 2016 is be comfortable and make sure your clothes compliment your body type.Don't wear the outfit if you're not comfortable because it will show. Inspirations from runways are advisable but don't copy the whole outfit rather tone it down because runways tend to be extreme and not realistic. 

You don't need to wear Rose Quartz and Serenity at the same time. Choose one color then pair it up with basics.

Basically, that's it! Enjoy your stylish 2016 and thank you #AbreezaFashionForum.
