Serenity Sunday: 9 Budget Friendly Items to Take On the Hottest Colour of 2016

Pantone Colour 2016 - SerenitySome of you may already know my closet is 50 Shades of Blue. So you can only imagine how excited I am about this year’s Pantone colour – Serenity (sorry, Rose Quartz). I have been delaying in writing about this lovely colour because I wanted to share something that is cute, versatile, and most importantly, affordable. For those who haven’t worked out how to wear this Pantone Colour of the Year 2016 yet, look no further. Click ahead and join me in the world of Serenity.

Boohoo Shirt Dress (AUD $36.00)
A simple shirt dress is always a good idea for work. Layer it with stockings or unbutton the dress and wear it as a coat with a pair of pants if your office’s dress code is on the straight side.

H&M Blouse (AUD $59.95)

A Miu Miu-esque blouse for less than $60, why not?

Mon Purse Leather Bucket Bag (AUD $349.00)

Never act fast enough to snatch up a Mansur Gavriel bucket bag? Well, what about spending only a fraction of its price and personalising this one with your own monogram?

Steve Madden Heeled Sandals (approx. AUD $134.30)

You can’t go wrong with a pair of minimalistic ankle-strap sandals, not when they are in this stunning blue suede.

Atmost&Here Wrap Skirt (AUD $49.95)
Atmos&Here Belle Wrap Skirt
If this wrap skirt is not the most versatile piece for both work and play, I don’t know what is. Pair it with a pair of pumps to translate cubicle chic or style it with some heeled sandals (or even sneakers) for a cruisy weekend brunch. The options are just limitless.

Beginning Boutique Chambray Dress (AUD $59.95)

Chambray is another easy way to pull off this Serenity colour trend. The white eyelet lace upper makes this loose-cute dress more romantic than frumpy.

Keepsake Shorts (AUD $149.95)

Because we can all use a good pair of high-waisted shorts. The pleated details would also help you hide that food baby.

Tobi Slip-Ons (AUD $56.20)

The soft blue colour adds a feminine touch to these slip-ons.

Ice Watch with Silicon Strap (AUD $129.90)
If you are unsure about wearing the colour on your body, wear it as your accessory. How cool is that rose gold accent juxtaposes with the light blue watch face and strap? You might just have found your new favourite arm candy.

Will you wear this Pantone Colour of the Year 2016? How will you style it?

  1. I love this colour. It’s not the first colour that comes to mind when I think of pastels, but I think it’s one of the most beautiful colours ever.

    I’m in love with the heels and the boohoo shirt dress. So beautiful.
