Happy Wednesday! I wanted to do something pink since it is October + Breast Cancer Awareness month. And PINK has been popping up everywhere this fall! I’m more of a neutral girl, but I’m loving the color for fall to! Below are some Dos and Don’ts to looking pretty in pink this fall!
DO consider fabric.
Fabrics are key. You can absolutely wear your floaty, petal pink silk skirt (or dress, or blouse) once the temperature drops—if you pair it with heavier layers. Ribbed tights, a chunky sweater, and a wool jacket not only provide extra warmth, they also provide gorgeous textural contrast.
DO remain neutral.
This is my go-to trick for making even the riskiest pieces work. When in doubt, keep everything else monochrome or super neutral. For example, bright pinks look modern and sleek when paired with all-black, lighter hues feel really luxe with ivory and gray.
DON’T be afraid to go bold!
The freshest looks on fall’s runways were the ones that contained the zaniest color combos: pink with mustard or red or army green. If you’re going to go this route, be sure to choose pieces in crisp silhouettes (no ruffles, ruching, or bows, please) and go with strong accessories (square-heeled boots or sturdy flats) to ground the look.
And always, always remember to follow the only fashion rule that matters: Whatever you wear, own it.
For those of you still reading, I’ve linked my favorite PINK accessories below 🙂
I’d love to hear your favorites! Hope you all are having a great week!
