How to change the floating label color of TextInputLayout

With reference to the new TextInputLayout released by Google, how do I change the floating label text color?

Setting colorControlNormal, colorControlActivated, colorControlHighLight in styles does not help.

Try The Below Code It Works In Normal State

 <android.support.design.widget.TextInputLayout
     android:layout_width="fill_parent"
     android:layout_height="wrap_content"
     android:theme="@style/TextLabel">

     <android.support.v7.widget.AppCompatEditText
         android:layout_width="fill_parent"
         android:layout_height="wrap_content"
         android:hint="Hiiiii"
         android:id="@+id/edit_id"/>

 </android.support.design.widget.TextInputLayout>

In Styles Folder TextLabel Code

 <style name="TextLabel" parent="TextAppearance.AppCompat">
    <!-- Hint color and label color in FALSE state -->
    <item name="android:textColorHint">@color/Color Name</item> 
    <item name="android:textSize">20sp</item>
    <!-- Label color in TRUE state and bar color FALSE and TRUE State -->
    <item name="colorAccent">@color/Color Name</item>
    <item name="colorControlNormal">@color/Color Name</item>
    <item name="colorControlActivated">@color/Color Name</item>
 </style>

Set To Main Theme of App,It Works Only Highlight State Only

 <item name="colorAccent">@color/Color Name</item>

Update:

UnsupportedOperationException: Can't convert to color: type=0x2 in api 16 or below
