Your Best Colours & How to Wear Them – Pink

What do you think of when I say pink? For some it will be “Barbie” pink and little girls, for others it will be pretty Rose Pink or it might be hot vibrant pinks like Fuchsia.

Whichever it is we can all add pink to our wardrobes, we just need to know the right one and how to wear it. In fact there isn’t just one shade of pink you can wear because there are hundreds of variations, below I’ve chosen a few you can wear with confidence.

Don’t overpower a delicate pink like Salmon with dark accessories – here I’ve chosen neutral Taupe so that the pink is the focus.

For a Deep choose rich and strong like Sorbet or Sangria which stand alone. Wear blush with a darker contrast.

For Warm colouring choose Peach and Coral pinks rather than a Pastel or Fuchsia pink and wear it with one of your warm neutrals like Biscuit.

The Cool woman looks fantastic in pink ranging from Icy to bold and should wear it in contrast with a light or dark colour. Choose Soft White for a striking colour combination.

The Soft woman looks good in muted pinks rather than vivid colours. She can still wear colours with strength like Sorbet or Sangria but should wear them with other similar depth colours rather than creating a contrast and needs her lipstick to finish the look.

Clear, strong pinks worn with a contrasting light – like Silver Grey shown above – or dark neutrals such as Black or Pine Green are the Bright woman’s best choices.

    Thank you for this helpful post! I always struggle with pinks as I have red hair.
    The warm colouring examples are just right for me.

I have an afternoon tea event in London next weekend & this dress will fit the occasion perfectly …. Well done Maria & I love the monthly magazine . PS I love the pink shell top too but that’s going to have to go on my wish list for now… Debbie

      Hi Debbie, thank you for the feedback – I love that dress too and I am sorely tempted! Enjoy your event – you will be looking very stylish. The shell top is new in so you should be ok to wait for that one 🙂 I’m glad you like the magazine too x
