Spring Blush Crush

Every season has it’s colors, some trendy, some staples, and others vary by personal preference. Lately, I have been obsessing over dusty pink/blush tones, whether its on my nails, lips, or part of my outfit, I just can’t get enough. In addition to this color being my latest obsession, it is one of the must have colors of the season. I love colors that are versatile and complimentary to a variety of different skin tones and hair colors, making them essential musts for all wardrobes. Not only is a blush shade suitable for many different people based their skin tones, but also for all unique personal styles.

No matter what your day to day style or need is, I’m sure you have room for this color in your life, whether you’re style is business professional, edgy, over-the-top girly, or anywhere in between, you can certainly fit this color into your closet. If your preference is to have an accent piece or a head to toe outfit, you will definitely find something in a dusty pink that suits you perfectly.

1) Business Professional: Your current wardrobe may contain countless blazers, structured blouses, pantsuits, and a whole lot of neutral colors. In the business world, there is always room for a pop of color, especially when that color won’t overwhelm the ensemble, but rather kick it up a notch. Try some pieces that will make a great accent piece to your current structured look. A soft pink pump or a blush manicure are a great place to start. If you’re feeling a bit more wild, try a structured dress, or a pantsuit in the same hue and it may be the refreshing new addition your closet had been needing.

2) Edgy: If your style is on the edgier side of the spectrum, look for items that have studs or cutouts, or pair a feminine blush top with a leather jacket and distressed denim. Maybe you’d rather accessorize with a touch of pink rather than dive full in, there are endless possibilities for that case, from bags, to shoes, to scarves, you can certainly find a statement piece that meets your style. Try layering a blush bralette under your favorite studded jacket, or open back top. This will add a touch of femininity without sacrificing your overall look.

3) Girly girl: You should have no issues looking for dusty pinks that fit your girly-girl style. From frilly mini skirts, to crochet blouses, and flowy maxi dresses, there are plenty of options for you. Jazz up your look with a bold print that contains a muted pink or a blush shade to make a major statement without being overwhelmingly pink. A great pairing for a light pink dress or skirt is a denim jacket, it will add some depth to your look while still keeping it ultra feminine.

As summer approaches, blush is an excellent option to wear to an upcoming wedding, graduation, or other formal event. Due to its immense versatility, you can use accessories to cater the outfit to your personal style. Even if you only want to keep it subtle, I strongly recommend investing in a few blush pieces and they will take you well into the summer months.
