All About Blush Pink
Since I was a little girl, I’ve always been partial to pink. The color pink has always been a personal favorite of mine, from fuchsia to magenta to rose, raspberry, and ruby. I get it from my Granny, as she’s a pink lover too.
In the last couple years the popularity of pink has seemingly been on the rise. And pink is still one of the most on-trend colors for the season.
More specifically, blush pink has really taken center stage. If you’re wondering why that is so, there is a clear cut answer…
Why blush pink?
For the first time ever back in 2016, Pantone chose two colors of the year: rose quartz and serenity. Given that rose quartz is half of that equation, it’s no surprise that blush had such a resurgence in the fashion world. After all, blush pink is just a tad lighter than rose quartz.
How to Wear Blush Pink
This beautiful pastel color has made its way to the runways, to the streets, and into the stores. Even if you’re not one who gravitates towards color, blush might suit you very well, as it’s subdued and understated in a sophisticated, chic way. When it comes to fashion choices, there are many different ways you can wear this sought-after color.
Here, we have six different ideas for how you can incorporate blush pink into your outfits…
1. A Monochromatic Look
First, the most impactful way to wear blush pink is in a monochromatic look. Because of its beautiful muted tone, blush pink acts almost like a neutral. This makes it is a great choice for a monochromatic look.
Whether by way of a pant suit, skirt, and blouse, or a dress, you also don’t need to be afraid to pair blush accessories with the aforementioned looks. Blush on blush takes on a stylishly elegant look day or night.
2. With Other Neutrals
Secondly, consider pairing blush pink with other neutrals. In fact, think of this pale pink shade as a stand in for black, white, or gray.
Next time you grab your black on black outfit, swap out part of the outfit for its blush counterpart. Or if you’re wearing a white blouse with black bottoms, add a blush coat. Or if you’re wearing a cozy gray sweater this winter, try a blush pink hat.
3. With Other Pastels
Pastel shades are light, airy, and calming, and blush certainly fits seamlessly in there. Pairing blush with other pastels is a great way to bring the color into your look.
And while pastels are typically synonymous with spring, don’t be afraid to wear this color palette well into the fall and winter. Actually, you’ll be right on trend!
4. Bold and Daring
The color pink tends to be thought of in dainty, feminine ways, with lace being at the forefront of fabrics to go with this hue. However, step out and try a blush leather jacket, a fitted blush dress, rock stud shoes in blush, or even a blush vintage tee.
5. Dainty and Delicate
Don’t get us wrong – we still love a full-on feminine fashion moment. So, don’t feel like you ever have to shy away from that. Try blush pink on ladylike lace and bow blouses and pleated skirts.
6. Accessories Only
Alternatively, you can ease into the blush look with accessories. If you want to stick to your other neutrals for your apparel, bring out blush in your accessories.
