We recently talked about how beige and browns are the surprising color trend of the season, but that’s not to say that the luminous pastels and bright neons that we fell in love with last year are going anywhere. In fact, if fashion week’s runways and this years’ red carpet looks are any indication – which, of course, they are – colors like marigold, fiery reds, living coral, bold blues, and vibrant pink will be on everyone’s style radar.
One of the biggest surprises is the resurgence of those vibrant pink shades. Pink can be somewhat of a difficult color to style. How do you wear pink without looking too adolescent? How does pink fit into a modern fashion world that totes sleek, chic pieces in subdued colors? Take a look at some outfit inspiration of how to dress pretty in pink in a modern world.
Second layers in feminine colors are especially beautiful as we come into the spring season and a great way to liven up an outfit of neutral colors or compliment an outfit of like hues of pinks and red.
Wear With Similarly Bright Colors
Wear as an Accent Color
Every once in a while, I’ll look down and realize, I got it at Crossroads – almost head to toe! This was one of those days. I grabbed my Everlane, striped tee – which is extra thick & just feels QUALITY, ya know? And then these jeans are Frame, which I always look for at Crossroads; a luxury denim that just NAILS the fit & feels like pajamas. My flats are J.Crew and give me an effortless pop of color when I need it. And on top, we have my Zara cat-eye sunnies giving me life.
And just like that, without even trying, it’s Crossroads head to toe. Do you ever look down and realize, omg, I’m head to toe luxury FASHUN on a budget!?
It’s the busiest travel season of the year and the last thing we need to worry about is what we will be wearing when we fly or drive for hours upon hours. Comfort is key, but comfort doesn’t always have to mean sloppy sweats or old pajamas. Put just a little bit of effort in your travel wear and focus on those “in-between” pieces of clothing; clothing that can be comfortable and chic.
There’s nothing that makes a bit more formal look work for day and, quite literally running around town, like sneakers. Converse are a classic that just keep on giving. White high-top chucks are a low-cost investment; I highly encourage everyone to jump on. They are perfect with basically everything – in the summer with cut-offs (I refuse to use “jorts” – I mean, what is that!?), with cropped pants, and of course, with a fun dress.
I’m a Converse-for-life kind of girl. Are you into the sneakers and a dress look? What’s your go-to sneaker?
In the end, what’s cooler than jeans and a white tee? Somehow, I always end up craving a super, simple look made a little more feminine or detailed. This See by Chloe embellished tee shirt checked that box for me. It’s comfy. Check. It’s got sleeve power. Double Check. And for me, that makes it just about perfect.
What’s the basique (it’s like “basic” but fashion) item you’re loving?
