​Passage: The Colors of the Year

It happened this past week ... color coordinates for the year 2016.

The Pantone company, the fashion industry's arbiter of color, announced that -- for the first time -- there actually will be TWO Colors of the Year.

Based on its poll of designers and manufacturers, Pantone says 2016's colors will be pink and baby blue.

More precisely, the colors will be Pantone shade number 13-1520 (now to be known as "Rose Quartz") and 15-3919 (henceforth to be called "Serenity").

Now that Pantone has given these two shades its blessing, it's expected that many of next year's clothes, household furnishings, and appliances will be decked out in one of those two tones.
