It’s not pink. It’s not red. It’s pink red- Watermelon to be exact and it is one of this summer’s hottest colors! This juicy color is so bold, fresh and energetic. If you find red too strong, you might try this color that can often be a little softer than pure red, which can sometimes look a tad harsh after a certain age with aging skin and hair. Watermelon red makes you look fab after 40!
Now technically watermelon is a Summer color – meaning if you have had your seasonal color analysis done and are a summer, this pink-red is your best versions of red. However, it looks great on everyone.
Try and see if it works for you. I am a Spring, and I like to wear this Eli Tahari watermelon red dress. It goes really well with my fair complexion and hair and I always get lots of compliments!
What would you wear watermelon red with if you wanted to be in style, but didn’t want to wear it head to toe? You could wear a watermelon top with black shorts, pants or skirt.
This is a great way to color block, with the dark color down below where most women are heaviest, and the bright color up by your face to give you some life. You could wear watermelon jeans and an ivory or white top to quiet the look and add elegance, or you could go all out if you have the personality for it, have fun and wear green and watermelon – just like the fruit itself!
Another great way to add a dash of this trendy summer color – Wear this color only as an accessory. ie: You could wear a watermelon colored purse, jewelry, have shoes with some watermelon in them, a scarf etc. A dash of watermelon would look great against dark wash navy jeans too.
