Drumroll, please...Pantone has officially announced the colors of the year of 2016 and we've been granted not one—but two!—shades to stock our wardrobes with for the coming seasons. Named Serenity and Rose Quartz, the hues are pale shades of blue and pink, respectively.

Pastels were hard-hitters on the fall runways—from the likes of Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and Max Mara, to name a few. Though often reminiscent of warmer weather, the fall and winter season is full of oversized coats, cozy sweaters, and midi skirts in the soft shades.

Here Are 2 Stylish Ways to Pull Off The Pantone Colors of the Season, Serenity and Rose Quartz

This winter, we can't wait to wear these awesome pastels like the two fashionistas above. Mix up your cold-weather wardrobe by styling all your favorite looks with a cozy coat in a pastel hue. For a subtle pop of color, mix a pastel pink skirt into an otherwise all-black look. For a night out, reach for a full, party silhouette, while a workday may call for a slim pencil skirt or pleated midi.


Shop the below styles in Serenity and Rose Quartz to jump-start your 2016 wardrobe now!

Come the gray of winter, we could all use a thing or two to brighten our wardrobes and boost our moods. So good thing for color science, which proves that fashion and feelings most definitely go hand-in-hand. So try these outfit ideas to perk you up when you've got the blues, butterflies, or are just feeling a bit sleepy. Oh and if you're in a good mood already, they're also just plain chic.


Mood: Feeling kinda tired

Red will give you energy: And who doesn't want that? There's nothing more confidence inducing than the color red (a 2005 study even concluded red-jersey teams won more than those wearing other colors!), so rock it like we know you can—whether a sexy dress or simple blouse paired with jeans.


Mood: Anxious

Hues of blue are calming: Whether you want to bring serenity to those around you or need a little chill time for yourself, choose blue this winter. It is as simple as opting for a bright blue skirt or top when looking for that piece to style with your black tones. The Huffington post reported that this color actually lowers blood pressure.


Mood: The blues

Yellow makes you happy: Think: bright summer sun. Yes, we're talking about that sun you can't quite remember when it begins to snow, willing it to return sooner rather than later. Bring forth memories of sitting on the beach, sipping a summer cocktail, by adding some yellow accents to your look this winter. Health Magazine included a report from the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam in which participants confirmed these positive feelings of uplift when encountering the color yellow.


Mood: Unfocused

Green will balance you: This hue is said to bring with it a sense of equilibrium. The Logo Company even claims it sparks such trust in us that they often recommend new companies create green logos and singe. And, as we've watched summer quickly slip away from us, balance is certainly something we welcome with open arms. This color doesn't have to be the brightest of the bright: reach for tones of army and hunter green this winter.


Mood: In need of inspiration

Purple will boost creativity: Long associated with ideas of fantasy and spirit, the shades of purple and indigo will actually amplify your perception of creative ideas. According to Kenny Frimpong, quoted in Business Insider, it's a color to wear when you need an extra confidence boost at the office. So, as you enter the new year and search for that next life step, pull on that lavender sweater or bright indigo tunic!

Thigh-high boots are the boots of the season. In leather and suede, flat soles or block heels, these statement shoes are not only surprisingly wearable, they're well on their way to becoming cold-weather wardrobe staples.

The editors at Glamour tested the trend at the beginning of the season and these over-the-knee favorites have only grown in popularity since then. Pull them on over skinny jeans, style them with a midi skirt that falls below the top of the boot, or allow a little sliver of skin (or tights, come winter frost!) to peek out between your boot and hemline—no matter how you style them, the possibilities are nearly endless.

Just in time for winter, find our 15 favorite ways to wear thigh-high boots, below!

The 3 Warmest & Chicest Winter Hats For You to Wear This Season

'Tis the season for covetable cold weather accessories, and we're giving you the heads up on what to wear up top. This year, don’t be afraid to muss your hair with ultra-cool, ultra-comfy hats: First, and most importantly, because they’ll keep you from catching cold, and also because you’ll want to wear them with, oh, just about everything. We’ve narrowed the playing field to three hat styles that will see you through this winter and maybe even beyond—depending on when Mr. Groundhog sees his shadow.

The 3 Warmest & Chicest Winter Hats For You to Wear This Season

Karen Walker gave the beanie new life last season by adding sequin embellishments beneath a nostalgic pompom. This look is as low-maintenance as it is cold-weather chic, meaning you can slip a beanie on whether you’re wearing jeans, a maxi dress or comfy joggers. We’re particularly fond of Forever 21’s sweet Bear Ears rendition, which utilizes the animal face accessory trend for a hat that will keep you warm. And for a gold ol’ classic, look no further than a creamy white topper from Old Navy, which will fulfill your need for both a pompom and grownup pattern.

The 3 Warmest & Chicest Winter Hats For You to Wear This Season

You don't have to go the real fur route to get in on the fun of this ultra-cozy look. Take a note from the Michael Kors fall-winter 2015 show by pairing your comfiest knits and sweater dresses with a furry trapper hat. Nirvanna Designs' creation offers the best of both worlds with a cozy cable-knit exterior and faux fur trim, while Imposter’s all-faux fur style is made even more adorable with an under-the-chin bow.

The 3 Warmest & Chicest Winter Hats For You to Wear This Season

And finally, a Parisian classic—although the beret was given new life on the Italian runways at Milan Fashion Week, notably at Gucci, where the style was paired with chunky pullovers and slim-fitting midis. Try BCBG MaxAzria’s leopard version with kitschy netting, or, if you’d like to go a little more luxe, Eugenia Kim offers a cat ear style that is sure to make even the most hat-shy style maven purr.
