If you haven’t already noticed, I’ve really been digging the colour pink lately but a very specific shade of pink. I don’t really like bright pink or neon pink but rather a subtle shade of pastel pink. I feel it is a lot more versatile and can be layered beautifully especially with the colder months coming up. Pink can also be quite a tricky colour to pull off because you can very well end up looking like a princess or pack of babaloo bubblegum. With various shades of pastel pink dominating the runway, even if you hated the colour before, you will find that it will slowly start making its way into your wardrobe.
I’ve decided to keep this look quite pastel. If you’re ever in doubt on how to pair pink, I usually pair it with black or pastel. Sometimes it’s nice to pair a texture or shade that you wouldn’t usually associate with that shade. i.e. a pleather/leather jacket with shades of pastel or denim as I have done in the images.
If you’re still feeling too girly by wearing pink then try adding a few menswear accents. You could try wearing a dusty pink dress with a fitted blazer and accessories just to harden the look up a bit. You need to choose a shade that suits your skin tone and always make sure that the cut also flatters your specific body shape.
