I used to wear a lot of pinks but the older I get the more selective I’ve become with how I wear it. I don’t want it to make me look older, and that can happen if you choose the wrong shade or shape. If I’m wearing a soft shade like baby pink, I try to choose it in a clean and modern silhouette.
Like most trends, pink has never gone away for many women. For others, they’re seeing it as a fun alternative to beige and red.
Blush, rose, pale, petal, watermelon, rose, raspberry, salmon, coral, shocking pink, etc are all on trend this spring/summer and available in both clothing and accessories.
Here’s a quick way to find a few of your most flattering shades of pink.
Examine your hand. The color at the outside base of your palm is often a perfect, soft pink for you. Next, pinch the tip of your finger and you’ll see a deeper pink that is always flattering on you. Pull your bottom lip down and find a medium pink that works with your coloring.
Pinks come in warm and cool tones. I find as I age I can now wear some warmer versions that used to sap the life out of my face. Shocking pink is even worse worn close to my face, but I love it in a scarf or shoe or handbag.
Rose gold is a continuing trend this year and flatters both warm and cool skin tones.
Style Tip- If you’re limiting yourself to a color pallet you had done many years ago, remember that “your flattering colors” change as you age. Skin and hair tones change subtly and that opens new possibilities for you to wear.
Do you wear pink? How about rose or plum or blush pink?
