Pretty in PinkNovember 29, 2018
What colors make up your winter wardrobe? Let me guess… a lot of deep, dark shades. Am I right? Well, get ready to hit the rosy refresh button because today I’m sharing all sorts of fun, pink pieces and accessories that will have you rethinking your color choices all season long!
So, why should we wear pink in winter? Simple! It’s quite refreshing to take a break from all the dark hues. Switching from the classic black and navy to some fun bold colors like pink, red, orange or cobalt can feel like a breath of fresh air (even if it’s cold air).
Therefore, I’m officially calling this the season of pink, dear readers! From rose to fuchsia, pink can be flattering on all… if you choose the right hue for you.
And actually, pink is a lovely color to add to your wardrobe after 50 because, when worn near the face, it can complement older skin, which tends to lose some of its glow as the years go by.
Worried about looking girly? Don’t! Pink can certainly be sophisticated and pink is always fun, if you ask me. I’ll prove it to you!
Pink… A Color for Everyone
This is such a great way to wear pink! (You know how I love fun sunglasses, so I couldn’t help myself.) I adore these classic aviator sunglasses from Ray-Ban, $150. Get them here.
Another great way to embrace hot pink if you’re not sold on a pink dress (although I’ve shared a great one below) are these lovely waterproof boots by Hudson. Not only are they stylish, but they’re practical, too! They remind me a bit of the pair that I wrote about in this story. Get the pink ones pictured below, here.
This Michael Kors’s top is a lightweight crepe in a bold fuchsia — you could pair it with neutral slacks, winter white jeans, or even a pencil skirt if you’re looking to make a bold statement at a holiday party. Get it here.
Speaking of the perfect holiday outfit, this Go Silk matte silk shirtdress has a tabbed collar with cutouts and top button closure plus placket front. The self-tie belt cinches waist and flatters the loose fit and would flatter you! Get yours, here.
If a more subtle pink is more your style, I just love this See by Chloe blouse, cut from swathes of blush crépon finished with frothy ruffles and a plush velvet pussycat-bow. And if the pussycat-bow is not the most talked about item of clothing of 2018, I don’t know what is! Snag one for yourself, here.
These dramatic stone and crystal drop earrings have a vintage-chic look and sell for less than $7! Pick up a pair, here.
A cutout logo medallion gleams against crosshatch-textured Saffiano leather on a compact wallet perfect for organizing your cash and cards. Named for Buddy and Reva Robinson – the designer’s parents – this scaled-small style is a modern classic. Get it here.
And finally, Clinique’s Chubby Stick, winner of Allure magazine’s ‘Best of Beauty’ award for Best Lip Crayon is always a great staple to carry with you, for a quick splash of color when you’re out and about. Pick one up, here.
I leave you with a favorite quote, dear readers and an invitation to wear pink this winter (and all year long), kiss a lot, and laugh even more…
“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” ~ Audrey Hepburn
