If you hung up pink a long time ago because it just wasn’t sophisticated enough for a grown-up gal, you may want to take a look at Blush.

Blush is a popular soft shade of pink that is pretty, modern and totally chic.  Here are 2 ways to wear it.

  1. Combine Blush with Black

Mild meets wild when you pair a lace blush dress with an inky black sleeveless coat. The blush pink color helps soften the black, which can sometimes be quite harsh on a mature woman. The black gives the super feminine lace dress more of an edgy vibe.

Add some fabulous jewelry, sexy suede booties and a ladylike purse and you’re ready for your next cocktail party or important dinner date.

Blush pink combined with black works year round and is especially good at transitional times like fall into winter.

If you are not a fan of black but like the idea of contrasting blush with a dark color, then try combining blush with navy, blush with olive, or blush with gray.
