Barely-there blush, second-skin soft pinks and need-it-now nudes are everywhere this season. I was always a bit nervous to wear this shade with the fear of looking too washed out but my stylist Alexandra Renee Scott showed me ways to pull off beautiful blush colors the right way. Try out this tonal treat for yourself.
Now that April and its' showers are over and the months of BBQ's, bomb fires on the beach and summer weddings are approaching, it's time we incorporate warm weather fashion trends into our wardrobe. The blush trend ruled the recent runways and is the perfect pop of color to add to your outfits as we shift from spring into summer. Our fashion should begin to transition to lighter fabrics and a fresh color pallet… Unless you live in the all black, all the time city of New York. Regardless of your location it is a time for a wardrobe boost.
Lowdown loyalists, let’s think pink! Designers such as Gucci, Simon Rocha, and Balenciaga blessed us with feminine pops of blush and light flesh tones for spring/summer 2017. This understated color combination is flirty yet innocent, easy to wear, and absolutely perfect for sunny weather.
These colors are reminiscent of sheepskin and canyon clay, two of the colors Pantone chose for 2017. I guarantee you will be seeing these colors quite a bit on the streets and in stores.
You can never go wrong with monochrome if it is done well, and using either of these colors in a monochromatic ensemble is so effortlessly sophisticated. However, if just one color is too bold for you, try adding a touch of blush to your wardrobe.
