Blush pink is a shade that’s been all over interiors and fashion, this year. The colour is set to get even bigger for the season ahead, and is the perfect tone for chic and cozy autumn style. The new basic is warmer than pure white and kinder to fall complexions than beige; and, the promise of new season styles, with lots of blush pink, is making this transation period just that little bit easier.
I've always loved blush clothing, but it can be a bit unforgiving, if you choose the wrong shade. I started following the Sydney-based blogger, Rachel James, who's IG feed is awash with blush tones, and I started paying attention to what suited me best. There are lots of different blush tones out there, from whisper-soft ones to richer, more saturated hues. So, I’m all for taking this trend and running with it, and will be investing in a few new blush pink statement pieces and accessories. The updated and more grownup version of pastel pink, blush pink is warm, soothing and sophisticated. Here’s how I’ll be styling it, for A/W ‘17 ...
One of my staple pieces, for this season, will be a chunky knit blush pink rosy sweater. Extremely versatile and so easy to throw on, I’ll be relying on it for colder days. Grey and blush pink is a match made in heaven, so I plan on teaming an off-the-shoulder blush jumper with a pair of dark grey, high waist, skinny jeans, and a pair of charcoal heeled ankle boots.
I’m not shying away from lots of blush pink this season. In some cases, a statement piece is all you need; but, I’m happily pairing blush pink with blush pink, to really nail this trend.
If you’re a little less keen on pink, in general - or girly isn’t really your style - accessories offer the perfect opportunity to introduce a little blush, into your wardrobe. Try a leather shopper, in blush with gold details, or a blush across-body bag, for a smaller alternative. For colder days, try a blush fedora or scarf; or, for a super subtle approach, try rose gold jewellery as a nod to this trend, in a different way.
Another style I’ll be living in, over the next few months, is blush pink skinny jeans (Tesco actually had some super skinnies over the summer). I’ll be teaming these with a white blouse and charcoal coat, for smarter days, and a grey jumper and white plimsolls, for an off-duty vibe. To enhance the look, I’ll style it with a blush leather bag, and a few rose gold statement rings.
For evening, pink can be a little bit tricky to pull off – bright and pastel pinks look a little bit too daytime - but blush pink offers the perfect shade, to lift an evening look. For cocktails with the girls, I’ll be going for high waist, tapered trousers in black, with a block heel sandal, teamed with a silk blush cami tucked in, and accessorised with a rose gold clutch and a nude pink lip and nail.
Another great way to introduce blush pink into your wardrobe, for the season ahead, is by choosing a blush coat. As this is a trend I really love, I’d be happy to wrap up warm in this colour hue, on a daily basis. I’ll be investing in a blush wool cocoon coat, which I can really snuggle into for really cold days. This will be perfect, teamed with grey jeans and heeled boots. I also love a mac in blush pink – perfect for warmer autumnal days.
