STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: A Pop of Pink

Style Advice of the Week

My latest style obsession is adding a pop of bright pink to a neutral outfit. This Fashionista flaunts it well, as her shoes add vibrancy to her everyday school ensemble.The best part about this pop of pink is that it doesn’t have to be tied in somewhere else in the outfit. The bold color stands for itself and doesn’t need to be supported elsewhere. Because of this, it is very evident that pink is a classic touch in the fashion world. The shoes were a great touch, but there are plenty of other fashionable ideas when styling with pink hues.

One of the easiest ways to boast a touch of pink is by pouting your lips. MAC lip pencil in cherry will add the right bright pink to any occasion. Another idea is to add the adorable Bewtiched Bloom Collar by Anthropologie. The collar would dress up your favorite striped sweater or neutrals on any day of the week. The printed silk top by Zara adds my favorite pink hues without overwhelming the wearer and making the top too limiting.

Of course, we can always copy this Fashionista’s style and add in the classic hot pink shoes. The Flynn Flat from DV by Dolce Vita is the perfect start for both comfort and style. Since the holiday season is approaching, pink is also the perfect beginning to your holiday gift search. Check out Kate Spade’s holiday gift guide and their many hot pink-inspired gift ideas. It’s hard to go wrong with a pop of pink!

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: A Pop of Pink

Uncategorized

This Fashionisto made me do a double take on my usual hike to class. When he passed I noticed his minimalistic outfit, and when I noticed the punch of pink in his hat I had to praise his easy-going style. They say “real men wear pink,” and I must agree this ensemble deserved some style praise.

From mini-star Suri Cruise, who is leads a pack of celebrity kid’s with style know-how, to Oscar nom Natalie Portman, the color pink is hot! This Fashionisto used the color in a subtle way to make a simplistic outfit pop.

Like this idea but not sure you can pull it off? The easiest way to make color stand out in an outfit is to start with a simple base. This Fashionisto went all neutral from the shoulders down: black scarf, khaki coat, dark jeans and white shoes. Slip on a black sweater dress and boots or dark jeans and a cardigan and you’re ready to accessorize.

Once your initial layer is on, choose one accessory in a bright, bold color! If you want an accessory you can wear many ways try a scarf or clutch in a daring color. For a bigger impact choose a larger item, like a pair of shoes or a coat.

Use color to its full advantage! Be adventurous, great style comes from small risks.
