Rose Quartz is Pantone color of the year 2016! And we couldn’t have been happier! I love roses! I guess it’s a flower,every woman loves! But rose quartz has nothing to do with the flower! Quartz, as well know is a crystal and Rose quartz has a feminine, light pink essence. It’s called the stone of the heart and the crystal of unconditional love! Take a look at the crystal! How beautiful is it!
Rose Quartz is just a variation of pink and lavender! And it’s a beautiful color. I recently came across the pictures from the Pakistan Fashion Week and I saw most of the models sashay down the ramp in hues of lavender and pink! Take a look at the designs straight from the Fashion Week. The first design reminds us of Deepika Padukone’s Jaipur look, doesn’t it?
From Pakistan to India, we are also not far behind. Lavender, pink and now rose quartz. Ethnic wear in these pastel shades are very popular. Last year it was mostly icy blue ( Inspired by Frozen?) and mint green. This year is definitely going to be the year of Pink! Let’s take a look at some lehengas in rose quartz shade which our stars at Bollywood were spotted wearing, in 2015.
Embroidered Lehengas : For a reception party, Geeta chose to wear a blush pink lehenga, post her wedding! The color looked beautiful on her. Rose Quartz can be worn by women of any skin tone. Aamna Sharif dazzled at her sangeet in a pink Manish Malhotra lehenga! This one was a short sleeved lehenga with heavy floral embroidery.
Sequinned Lehengas : These look gorgeous! Take a look at the quarter sleeved blouse with heavily embellished lehenga. When paired with diamond jhumkar, you look perfect!
Full Sleeved Blouse with Lehenga : Sonam is a fan of the Pantone color of the year! She has worn lehengas in the same color a lot many times, over the past few months. Rose Quartz looks best with silver embroidery and jewelry, or pale gold jewelry. The simple lehenga looks gorgeous! She has paired the lehenga with jhumkas and a huge ring! A perfect bridesmaid look!
Net Lehengas : Look at how beautiful the second lehenga, by Shehlaa Khan, looks. The intricate silver embroidery, gives the lehenga in Princess-y effect! Also, note the sleeves. A lace blouse with loose sleeves make you look slimmer.
Sarees : Not only lehengas, Rose quartz sarees were also worn by our celebs. Sonakshi Sinha and Sonam Kapoor, seems to have fallen in love with the color already! Sonam gave us yet another Shehla Khan look and she looked stunning as usual! I wonder how these women carry off sarees with so much poise! Why do I keep tripping!
Lehengas with contrast colored blouses : Although rose quartz looks stunning, why not add a little twist! We recently saw Amrita Puri wearing a jacket lehenga in the same color and she looked quite good!
Jacket Style and shirt style lehengas: Take a look at some more jacket style rose quartz lehengas. The peplum one on Amyra Dastur looks hot! Sophie looked smashing in the shirt style lehenga! Maxi jackets with a front slit or long side slit with flared lehengas also look classy.
Gowns : If you want to feel like Cinderella or any Disney Princess, wear rose quartz gown! They are by far the most beautiful outfits on earth. Period. The color is extremely feminine, so more the flare and delicate emroidery, more beautiful it looks! Tube gowns like the ones Gauhar and Divya are wearing, are also interesting options.
Salwar Suits : Be it a wedding, a house warming or just another day at work. A rose quartz salwar will fit you into any of these! If not very elaborately emroidered, these suits make you look classy and casual! A full sleeved anarkali like Bipasha would look perfect for a day wedding. Athiya’s cotton anarkali with skirt looks good on tall, very tall women. Also, Kajol’s straight cut kurta with palazzos, is the safest option.
A little rose didn’t harm anyone : The Gauri and Nainika gown worn by Kriti Sanon is a stunner! There’s just a little bit of rose quartz which makes it stand out!
Floral Lehengas : Anushree Reddy deserves a special mention! He designs play with rose quartz so beautifully! Love her creativity and the brilliance!
Hopefully, we have inspired you with colour trends 2016 and fashion trends 2016 and you have decided which color to wear in 2016! I am already looking forward to the next wedding! My wardrobe is soon undergoing a make-over. You also be sure to pink up a lot of pinks! Happy Shopping and a very Happy New Year!
