When you think of the word blush, the first things that spring to mind are rosy lips, compact powders, and flushed cheeks. But ladies, we’ve made a breakthrough – no longer is blush reserved for that pretty face of yours.
From coats to scarves, knits and nails, to dresses and beanies, the blush crush has hit. Girly girls all around town are stocking up on their favourite shade, while others may be feeling a little disheartened by this seasons powder palette. How do I wear pink with all of my black they cry?
But don’t you worry Sirens, blush isn’t only for the girls who like frills and lace. This trend can work into any wardrobe. Dare we say it, even into an all-black-everything wardrobe. Not sure just how it’s done? Let us take you through it.
Be bold. Opt for a brighter blush and go all out in a long coat. Double denim underneath ticks all the right boxes for this season and gives this otherwise girly look a tomboy twist. Keep accessories neutral – a grey hat will protect your locks from the winter wind while Freedom keeps those feet firmly on the ground.
For the blush-shy: Go for a super light tone to add a bit of contrast. You will make it through the day if you abandon your usual white-grey-black shade spectrum, we promise. Keep it just a little loose and roll those sleeves and then go for your life adding as much black as you wish. Men’s sunnies work well with a leather clutch, while Frankie grounds you with a heavy heel and buckle details.
Play it neutral. White and nude keep the colour palette clean while you balance out an oversized knit with an angled skirt. Add Karlita for a little height and just top it off with a chunky gold bangle and clear cat eye sunnies. It’s simple, really.
For the true girl at heart, who loves to look and feel pretty as a picture. An array of pastels will work in your favour, from blush, to powder blue, and old favourite – nude. Just slip into Juliette and add touches of fine gold detailing to nail this look.
Don’t be shy about your crush this season.
