Pink Lady

by - May 11, 2017


I started falling in love with the color pink about two years ago and now I can't get enough of it! Blush pink appears to be the color of the season by far. Pink looks very different depending the tone and shade of the color you choose, from the soft pale blush to the powerful saturated hue. It is elegant, fun, feminine and youthful. It also suits well in different style, texture and material.

I chose a salmon pink jacket with a blush pink cotton top for a cute relaxed look. Did I mention they are SUPER soft, comfy and breathable too? This combo is my go to look when I have to run out with my little toddler. It is very easy to more around in as I chose a bit of a looser fit. I think salmon pink jacket gives the outfit a subtle pop of color without being totally dramatic. It also has a versatile cut and the gold detail on the zippers and buttons adds a little bit of glam to it. Pairing it with a blush pink cotton tee gives it almost a sporty kind of vibe to it and it's the component in which I love. I can switch off the jegging and boots with denim shorts or skirt with sneakers or sandals for the warmer weather.

Here's your do's and don'ts when wearing pink:

1. Choose a shade that compliments your skin tone
Not all pink look good on everybody. For example, people with darker skin tones would look great in hot pinks whereas these shades of pink can wash out those with paler skin. Get out there and try on different shades of pink and experiment on which ones are most flattering on you.

2. Play it safe
If you are just starting out with pinks, it's always safe to pair it with more neutral colors like white, nude and black. That makes the pink of your outfit the statement piece. For example, blush pink jeans with white top or hot pink blouse with black pants. If you choose to wear a pink dress, you can keep it from being too overwhelming by putting on a neutral jacket on top to tone it down. Complete your look with simple metallic accessories for to keep the look interesting.

3. Pop some colors
Be adventurous and experiment with colors! Pink looks absolutely fab with more colors than you think. Red with pink is pretty hot this season amongst many celebrities. Try a little out-of-the-box nautical look with pale pink and royal blue. These are ideas that make up a chic and stylist outfits.

4. Keep it simple
While pink is a very attractive color, don't go overboard. Choose only one piece of your outfit in pink. Most of the time, less is more. You can always try a pink accessory like a pair of shoes,  the face of a watch in pink to start! You want it to be edgy without being too overpowering.

How do you style your pinks?

P.S. When you find random balloons at the side walk, you gotta play with them!
