Question: How can I wear the blush color this spring?
Answer: Move over, emerald and radiant orchard—blush pink is proving to be the true color of the year. This softer trend was spotted all over the runways for fall, and is among one of the top it colors this spring. We love the way this petal shade of pink with beige undertones blends when paired with other neutrals. For a bolder look, pair with pops of vibrant color or edgy pieces. Blush looks far from stuffy when applied in these modern ways:
The blush coat
The most versatile way to incorporate the blush trend into your wardrobe is via coat. You may have already purchased a blush wool or faux fur coat this past winter, but a lighter transition coat in this hue will lend itself to chilly nights this spring. Blush is a fabulous new neutral that goes with just about everything. A light coat in a feminine hue will look great when paired with both day and night looks. Not only will you look perfectly on trend, but you’ll keep those goose bumps away. We’re obsessing over this T Tahari Coat. We also love a more rocker version of the blush coat with this Chelsea 28 Leather Jacket.
The new neutral
Since blush is beige based, it works amazingly as a neutral hue. It’s universally flattering and feels fresh and unexpected when used on classic pieces. Replace your favorite pair of navy pants with these Marc by Marc Jacobs Twill Blush pants. A classic pair of ballerina flats in blush work with virtually any color palette. Blush works well when paired with jewel tones, other neutrals, and even other shades of pink!
If you’re not quite smitten with this soft shade yet, try incorporating this pink in a more subtle manner. This can be with shoes, bags, or even nail polish. For those of us who aren’t ultra-feminine, this color looks amazing with more masculine silhouettes. Try mixing more boyish shapes or accessories in this feminine color to create incredible contrast. For those of us who aren’t ultra-feminine, this color looks amazing with tougher silhouettes. Mix masculine shapes and accessories in this feminine color to create amazing contrast. These Rollie Derby Oxfords in this dark blush hue are unexpected and feel ultra modern for spring.
