Can You Do Pink For Fall?

Pink for fall. Have you thought about it? Are you a chance-taker? Wondered if it was the right color? Thought it was for spring only? Or, thought it was a girly-color? Here’s to the nay-sayers  all….

Pink is showing up in various shades and hues. Brights and blushes alike are cropping up in fashion shoots and magazines. You, fashion-forward lady, take this opportunity to wear this delicious color in a host of wonderful styles of shoes, booties, sandals, hats, handbags, make-up or utterly captivating clothing. Pink brings out wonderful hues in skin tones and can be worn with a variety of other colors.

Strut in a room with some Iron Fist heels and some party pink from H&M. Heads will be turning at the daring you. At the concept you dared to wear. Remember to always wear it with confidence!

Hit the boutiques, thrift shops, estate sales and look for important pieces and designer labels. Research the designers of the past. Sizing was different, remember it’s important to try on these pieces before you buy. You may also have to alter some of them to fit your shape more appropriately. You’ll find if a particular piece of clothing  was well-made back then, it will have held up through the years till now. Taking care of these garments is tricky, but well worth the effort and time. They aren’t wash and wear like today’s clothing. You’ll have to dry-clean some of them. Mix and match some of the vintage pieces with current pieces from your closet to create stunning effects and ensembles you can call your own style with chutzpah.

Coordinating your outfit is important. Color is key. I’ve included some color wheels and color charts for you to work with when selecting pink as one of your primary or accessory colors of the day. Have fun, happy shopping, and think pink!
