Made you Blush

From dusty pink tones, to salmon hues, this season’s colour of choice and runway favourite is Blush Pink. Taking a softer approach to Winter, it’s time to ditch the dark moody greys shades for something a little more uplifting. When teamed against block colours, blush pink takes on an identity of it’s own, and add’s that much needed impact to any outfit.

In this week’s outfit post, I’ve put together an entire outfit all around this Blush Pink skirt, keep reading below for a breakdown of this super easy on-trend look. Blush Pink, is popping up all over magazines, Instagram and appearing in your favourite boutiques.

From chunky knit sweaters, to logo jumpers plus cardigans, dresses and scarfs, it’s time to turn your attention to the colour trend of the season. Following from my previous blog post, I have been trying to incorporate more colour into my wardrobe and while yes monochrome kinda does count….there is just something about picking up a brightly coloured piece that gets me a tad more excited.

A vastly different choice from the bright pop of orange, Blush Pink is still as impactful just in a more subtle way and is easily teamed with a variety of different pieces. Even if your not a ‘pink’ type of person, start by investing in a scarf for a pop of colour, you will be amazed at how much you enjoy wearing this colour.

A typical Winter colour palette will usually consist of greys, blacks, navy and burgundy. However with this season, Blush Pink it’s having a moment, so my advice is to jump on board with this trend. Admittedly it can be overwhelming when shopping for or selecting your first pink piece, with so many options I decided to opt for this pu blush skirt available from dotti. I love A-Line skirts and this particular shade of pink was perfect for my wardrobe.

A lot of the skirts that I own are black so thinking pink would be a perfect alternative. The best advantage about this  skirt is that it is a main feature on it’s own, so when it comes to styling, the task is that much easier.

As the weather is still in the trans-seasonal stage, I chose the skirt on it’s own, once it gets colder though this is the type of skirt that can easily be teamed with tights for extra warmth. I love investing in pieces that allow me to have both options, providing more mileage.

When determining which tops to team with your skirt, there is once again so many options it’s up to how you want to style the piece and where you would like to wear it. Playing on the safe side, I opted for this black off-the-shoulder knit top to wear with the skirt. To be more adventurous, other colours you could team with the skirt include white, grey marle, champagne.

As the skirt is high-waisted it doesn’t allow for an overly detailed top, so keep it simple. Another alternative is, when the weather gets cooler to team a logo jumper with your skirt, for a street-style inspired look.Accessories play a huge part in this look, so its a good idea to look at some key pieces to help bring the outfit together.

Firstly, with the weather cool enough now, try teaming a pair of suede ankle boots with your outfit. It will keep the look trans-seasonal and on-trend. Save the over-the-knee boots for the heart of winter and start wearing your ankle boots now. You may notice that I have had some fun with my sunglasses (available from dotti) and the love heart shaped shades helped to add a touch of romance to this look.

Finish off your look, with a statement bag and a few pieces of accessories on your wrists and your look is complete. This look is possibly one of the most simple yet effective outfit combinations that will be easy to replicate and provide more mileage in your wardrobe. When looking to update your Winter wardrobe next, remember to think pink!
