By now, every one and their mother knows that Pantone came out with not one, but two colours for 2016 — Rose Quartz and Serenity. It’s a far cry from 2015’s Marsala, but this year’s colours feel and look like a breath of fresh air.

As gorgeous as these two pastel shades are and seemingly more suited for the spring and summer, they can be worn any time of the year! So, if you want to find out how you can rock these two beautiful hues all-year round, keep reading below for our 6 tips and tricks!

Rose Quartz and Serenity as jewellery is genius because they’re soft enough for any look, but they still have the ability to stand out with their unique shades! Rock the two colors as bracelets, necklaces, earrings, or rings and they will certainly tie all your looks together!

Nail Colour

Wear them separately or together on your nails and you will still have the hottest manicure in the room! Both colours will flatter all skin tones so you don’t have to worry about making your nails look dead or pale! Now that's what we call versatility!

Make your next outfit of the day pop by sporting a Rose Quartz-hued sweater or a Serenity-coloured one! Wearing it on its own or as an extra layer to keep you warm, these neutral shades will go perfectly well with any outfit. You don’t even have to be confined to rocking these colours as sweaters because they would still be just as beautiful as jackets or tops or even shoes!

Perfect as a wash of colour on the lid, Rose Quartz and Serenity will instantly make your eyes pop and brighten them up! If you’re a gal on the go, then you’ll love putting these on your eyelids for a quick pick-me-up to finish off any MOTD.

Inner Corner Highlight

Instead of using the typical champagne or rose gold colour on the inner corners of your eyes, why not mix things up and try Pantone’s colours of the year? They’re light enough to brighten up your peepers, and whether they’re matte or shimmery, they will still make you look awake in under 5 seconds!

Ombre Hair

Hair colour trends come and go, but the most resistant one was the ombre hair trend. So for this year, get out of your comfort zone and rock some Rose Quartz or Serenity ombre tresses! Or if you want to go all out, combine the two with Serenity at your roots, transitioning to Rose Quartz at your ends!


How are you going to rock Rose Quartz and Serenity this year? Let us know below!



Due to the immense popularity of 1970’s fashion again, A-line dresses and skirts are becoming quite famous once more. Being sported left and right, in different cloths, textures, and finishes, every one is loving this silhouette. And why shouldn’t it be loved? It’s flattering, classy, and gives just the right amount of ‘high-fashion’ without being too over-the-top!

While trends do come and go, we have a feeling that this specific one will be staying for quite some time. So if you want to rock some A-line pieces too, check out this week’s top OOTDs for a little bit of chic A-line inspiration!




This rose-printed A-line dress from Clozette Ambassador MonicaTrina surely (but innocently) commands attention! The white polka dots on the black base, topped off with clusters of rose prints, are the look’s clothing and accessories in one! So to avoid taking attention off the dress, she sported a pair of nude sandals and a simple watch for an elegant finish!



For this look, Clozette Ambassador Lexiepuzon beautifully combined two trends to make a classic look. Her mustard yellow off-the-shoulder top perfectly meshed with her preppy A-line skirt for a fresh, night time-appropriate ensemble!



If you want to rock a casual A-line silhouette, then take inspiration from Clozetter missCHI’s denim and high-collar combination! The maroon shade of her top, paired with a denim button down skirt gives a good throwback to the 1970’s, while her fedora adds a modern touch to the whole outfit.



Mini skirts are just the best, no? They’re fun, versatile, and ever since debuting in the 1960’s, they’ve never gone out of style! Star Clozetter rhygnb’s A-line ensemble adds a touch of a hippie vibe with the off-the-shoulder top’s paisley print and fringed purse, while her black skirt and choker tie everything together for a high fashion mixture of textures and decades.



Elegant, easy to put together, and appropriate for the day and the night, these are the markings of a perfect outfit. And Clozette Ambassador cforcassan achieves that “perfect” look by matching a maroon halter top with a caramel-coloured A-line skirt! While the center of the outfit is gorgeous, the accessories ‘make’ the ensemble by giving pops of gold and nude, two timeless shades that look great on everybody!

It’s a new year, a new day, and let’s start it by decluttering! No one likes throwing things away, but the feeling of relief washes over eventually. No more unnecessary things taking up space in your closet, storage, and vanity; and no more junk!

You may have said that you would use these things one day, but trust us, if you’re not using it now, you’re never going to. So if you want to purge and cleanse your home, keep reading below for the things you should be throwing out this new year!


Expired Makeup

We shouldn’t even have to justify why you should throw out expired makeup, right? Not only can they cause infections, but the bacteria in them might even lead you to break out! So throw out all the makeup you have that are way past their expiration date, and you’ll feel glad that you now have extra space to buy even more makeup!

Rusty Jewellery

We love accessories, and because we don’t want to waste money, we buy the costume ones. You know, the relatively cheap pieces that won’t really cause you and your wallet some pain. Too bad they dont’ last forever, though! Costume jewellery generally rust and break apart after a few months or a year, and if you have any old ones lying around, it’s time to throw them away. Don’t start your year with some old, gunky accessories, and instead, invest in some pieces that will last you for years and years!

Clothes You Don’t Wear

Shopping may be therapeutic and exhilarating, but it can often lead to “over-shopping” — where you buy a ton of stuff but you end up not using them. So seriously go into your closet and evaluate each item of clothing that you own. Separate them into two categories, one that you constantly wear, and one that you haven’t worn at all. Give away or resell or throw out the latter category, because if you’re not wearing it now, you’re never going to!

Old Underwear

Underwear, especially the ones made of good quality material, can last for years. But the regular cotton ones should be disposed of regularly, surprisingly sooner rather than later. Signs that you’re underwear is ready to be thrown out are if you’re bra’s underwire is starting to stick out, or the band has become loose. While if your bikini panties are beginning to look like granny underwear, then you know it’s time.

Broken Shoes

When your shoe breaks, of course you should have it fixed! But when it’s broken three or more times, it’s time for it to meet its maker. There’s nothing wrong with repairing old shoes, it’s just that if they’re breaking more than being worn, it’s a sign that you should already look to buy a new pair. So for this new year, chuck away all your heels, flats, and sneakers whose materials are peeling and separating!

Unused and Old Electronics

Does anyone really like hanging on to old cellphones, laptops, chargers, and more? Unless you’re planning on building your own museum on the history of electronics, we suggest throwing out (or better yet, selling) those old, unused gadgets. They're too bulky and are literally a waste of space.
