Bring on the seasons and novel trends because this colour just keeps making it’s way back into my closet! Personal style is meant to evolve but it can get tricky when you feel that certain trends are for keeps on a strictly non-negotiable basis simply because you are confident that what you’re doing or wearing rather, simply works for you. For example,I feel strongly about this colour, the same way I feel that flared trousers and camis are my thing too. In general however, blush pink works wonders on medium to dark skin tones as well as on most body types.
I was inspired to create this look after watching Nina Ricci’s Fall/Winter 2017 (FW17) collection on the runway. S/O to the team for the diverse models featured, they slayed the show, moreover the designs were nothing short of layered perfection – I especially admired the subtle tones and soft textures. Waist belts were the major feature in her collection, I need to thank my past self for not getting rid of those the last time they were buzz worthy #ComeBackSeason !!!
Blush is an excellent choice to style for an evening out, particularly if you are looking to replace the sometimes monotonous Little Black Dress (LBD). Another advantage of this shade is that it can be paired with an array of other colors to make it more flattering – navy, pale army green or even shades of grey make for great complimentary colours. Another tip, play with blush pink accessories, an LBD & blush pink accessories easily serves you a classy, polished look – so instead of buying clothing, look to add blush pink in your accent pieces as an alternative. Blush Pink is BAE just in case you missed the point here…
To style this look I paired blush pink pumps as well as a single strap sandal to compare the looks. My conclusion was that both work beautifully depending on the occasion, now because I styled this for an afternoon wedding, I went with the single strap as the pop of colour on it made the statement I intended on.
