Happy Tuesday my beautiful friends!
A few months ago, I mentioned how pink was a growing color trend, sharing some of my favorites in the color, mainly blush pink, which is THE pink shade of the moment. Though there are many who are embracing this color trend, such as myself, there are some who have reservations and it's in due part to the possibility of pink looking a little too playful and well, childish.
I totally get it and as an expecting mom of a baby girl, nearly everything that's cute for girls is in a dominant color, PINK! No one woman wants to be associated with a child or baby for that matter, but that doesn't mean you have to write it off entirely and I hope after reading this post, if the only reason you've avoided the color because you thought you'd look too girly, you'd at least give it a second glance or chance, maybe?!
Here are some tips, which I feel will make you feel more confident when wearing the color:
::Pair It With Neutrals::
Any shade of pink will look great with black, grey, or white and will have more of a mature vibe. In this case, I'd suggest combining it with other soft feminine colors, such as various shades of purple, as it will add more playfulness to the look, which is not a bad thing at all, but if this is something you don't want, then it should be avoided.
::Opt for Structure::
Pieces that are more structured have a much more chic and sophisticated feel to them than those that are more relaxed because they look more expensive, which is never associated with ultra feminine or girly, which are often quite the opposite and are quite loose and flowy.
::Combine it with Saturated or Muted Colors::
With this tip, I believe hues are very important to consider, what do I mean by this? Darker shades of pink tend to work best with dark, jewel, saturated tones than lighter shades. The lighter hue can add that overly feminine feel, which you may not want, as opposed to enhancing the strong and bold effect that the jewel toned color has, as seen above with the teal and hot pink combination. When it comes to muted colors, such as browns and shades of green, I believe the lighter the better. It allows for the understated earthy color to come forth and the pink to become more muted, in other words, the lighter pink brings the color alive.
So what do you think?! Are you open to the idea now after seeing some outfits and reading my suggestions? I hope so! Again, when experimenting, I think the best place to start is with a neutral and as you become more comfortable, you can explore the other suggestions.
Thanks so much for stopping by, my dear friends, and I hope you have a wonderful day!
