Winter 2014 trend: blush pink

See also

From London to Paris, New York to Milan, each fashion week for Fall/Winter 2013-14 had a runway show which featured some blush pink tones. Some shows used the color as a primary color for their collections, while others executed the color as a way to expand on their collection’s theme or story. Blush pink is the perfect color to try as a new, feminine neutral – not just to be worn for spring.

Several designers used blush pink in their collections. The most notable of these were: Nina Ricci, Burberry Prorsum, Céline, Bottega Veneta, Prada, Miu Miu, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Louis Vuitton, and Jil Sander. Each of these collections executed the hue beautifully, still remaining distinct enough in their own signature way. It is easy to pair this color with other pieces of a wardrobe. There are two ways to style it: go full monochromatic in blush, or use it as a base with accents of black, beige or ivory.

The most popular way to showcase blush pink was through a coat. From single-breasted to fur chubby, boudoir satin to oversized lapels, each was wearable. This look might be the most consumer-friendly way to participate in the blush pink trends. Others may enjoy wearing a wool or boucle suit in pink, a fun nod to the past with modern, exaggerated touches. A shirtdress is another option: in a solid, with polka dot hearts (Burberry Prorsum), or gingham (Prada). Lastly, accessories are the most understated way to take part – a purse or heel can still add a new touch to a winter wardrobe.
