How do you look pretty in pink when you’re a grown-up gal? Some pinks can look little girly after 40, but a new shade called blush is totally chic. Here are three ways to look sophisticated in this soft, modern color.
1. Combine Blush with Black
Elegant meets edgy when you pair a blush lace dress with an inky, black, sleeveless coat. The blush pink color helps soften the black, which can sometimes be stark and harsh against aging skin. The black, menswear- style coat gives the ultra-feminine lace dress a rebellious touch.
Add some fabulous jewelry, sexy suede booties, and a ladylike purse and you’re ready for your next cocktail party or important dinner date. Blush pink combined with black works year-round and is especially good at transitional times like fall and spring.
If black is not your color, but you want to contrast blush with a dark color, then try wearing blush with navy, or blush with olive, or blush with gray.
2. Combine Blush with Light Neutrals
Not everyone can wear a wear a high contrast color. If you have a fair complexion, or you simply prefer more of a delicate look, then blush with white or cream is equal as sophisticated.
Channel your inner Grace Kelly in this pretty outfit that is feminine and regal. Pair a flirty, silk, peplum blouse with a gorgeous pair of blush dress pants. Add a dazzling pair of nude, heels- a little sparkle never hurt!
Complete the look with some delicate gold and pearl jewelry, and a structured, metallic, boss-lady handbag! If you skin and hair are more cool than warm, simply switch out gold for silver for a look that’s a little icier, but still strikingly chic.
3. Wear Blush with Denim
Blush is very proper and ladylike, so one way to make it less precious is to wear it with your favorite, faded boyfriend jeans. This perfect/rough combo balances the sweetness of pink blush. Add glam accessories to keep the look expensive and mature.
