WELCOME TO THE PANTONE PARTY: QUARTZ AND SERENITY
PANTONE COLOURS OF THE YEAR: remember them? We’re half way though the year and though we’ve moved on to brighter and bolder colours, PANTONE Colours of the Year (Yes, 2016 got two!)… let’s not forget that Serenity and Quartz are perfect for the summer. The subtle pretty in pink hue of Quartz and the ethereal sky blue quality of Serenity makes for a lovely PANTONE-approved colour palette for lots of summer parties and events.
If you missed our last TV segment at CTV Ottawa Morning Live, we showcased an: “off-the shoulder, maxi and whimsical prints from Reitmans, which combined all three trends rolled into one super pretty outfit. Check this OFF THE SHOULDER MAXI DRESS online, then on TV when we went to CTV Ottawa’s CTV Ottawa Morning Live for a segment on #WhatToWear to a #SummerWedding. Pair it with exquisite fresh flower crown like this custom made one by Ms. Katherine McCloskey’s of floral studio POLLEN NATION in Ottawa.”
PANTONE FIT & FLARE: RW&.CO x #ELLECANADA’S EXCLUSIVE COLLECTION
This time, we take on a more classy and classic cut in this Pantone Coloured Fit and Flare dress that was part of last season’s RW&Co. X #ElleCanada Exclusive Collection (Check out #RWCoxELLECANADA for a look at the limited capsule edition!). I was deeply obsessed with this dress and I know some of my friends are too. I love how figure flattering this dress is and the fabric it’s made of, which is a neoprene like textile, the one that’s used in scuba diving gear.
The fabric is quite soft and smooth to the touch but it’s actually a sturdy and heavy dress but perhaps that’s what makes it so figure flattering. For more pretty dresses, check out RW&Co.’s current summer collection here!
WHAT WOULD YOU WEAR IT WITH: BLUE VS. CORAL
Although it does not have an elastic waist, the precise cut actually cinches the middle section. The full A-line skirt accentuates the hourglass silhouette of slim waist and shapely bottom. Overall, this dress is such a pretty and elegant outfit. In fact, this dress SOLD out last season.
My only dilemma – should I wear it with CORAL or should I wear it with BLUE?
What’s a girl to do?
WHY CHOOSE BETWEEN CORAL AND BLUE WHEN YOU CAN WEAR TWO
Well, like any shoe lover worth her stiletto, I couldn’t choose between coral or blue so I wore the two! Now, how about you?
