Learn how to pull off wearing pink—and still look like an adult—with these runway to real-life tips from our resident stylist
With the weather in flux, all of this flirting with fall is making me blush, and apparently I’m not the only one! New York Fashion Week is wrapping up, and some of the Spring/Summer 2015 trends we’ve just previewed will begin to take flight now. From the runways to the streets, delicate shades of pink, such as blush and mauve, are proving to be the color hue with staying power—whatever the season.
Oscar De La Renta, Jill Stuart, Monique Lhuillier and several other major designers dazzled and seduced us with these intoxicating shades in their shows. But models weren’t the only ones showcasing the trend: style-savvy celebs like Jada Pinkett Smith and Alexa Chung (see photos below) donned the color too, demonstrating how easy it is to incorporate pretty pink hues into your current wardrobe.
Regardless of the shade you choose, don’t be afraid to rock these softer hues in autumn. As the sun sets earlier and the days get darker, you can’t go wrong by using your ensemble to lighten things up. To make pink pieces more current, pair them with your favorite black and gray staples to offset the spring-summer vibe. If you want to keep your look more neutral and toned, try pairing pink with complementary colors, such as burgundy, camel, and chocolate brown.
And, when temperatures really drop, top off your outfit with a coat in one of these girly shades. I know I would much prefer to brighten up my look this way than with one of the drab colors dwelling in my closet, reminding me of long winters past. So be beautiful in blush and tickle yourself with pink this season, because New York Fashion Week gives you a pass to skip ahead a few months and rock the trends right now.
