How to Wear Pink in a Fresh, Modern Way
Pink is still one of our favorite colors to wear when our wardrobe needs to be shaken up a bit. Whether you prefer bright jewel tones or soft subtle hues, try infusing just a hint (or a whole lot) of pink into your usual routine. We swear, it will make you feel happier!
We found 10 fun, practical, pretty and easy ways to show you what to wear with pink. These color combinations might just inspire you to give up that whole head-to-toe black thing you’ve been wearing for years…
Fuchsia and Camel
Keep in mind that brighter, bolder colors will always pair well with neutrals — which is why fuchsia looks great with camel. Try wearing a classic overcoat with a statement-making clutch.
Pink and Black and White
One no-fail way to add some pink into your wardrobe is to pair it with black and white. This trio is sophisticated and easy, and kind of reminds us of Neapolitan ice cream. (Try wearing black jeans, a white blouse and pink cardigan — it’s as easy as that!)
Pink and Denim
This should be obvious, but pink looks great with your favorite denim. Whether you love bubblegum pink, fuchsia or blush tones — they all look great with any shade of denim, so go ahead and try any combination you like.
Blush and White
For an extremely elegant and sophisticated way to wear pink, try pairing a soft blush tone with white. The look is polished and chic — especially if you fully commit, and wear these colors from head-to-toe.
Burgundy and Fuchsia
For those not afraid to make a statement, try wearing two rich jewel tones together, like fuchsia and wine. The look is not quite monochromatic, but totally stylish.
Bubble Gum Pink and Dove Grey
If you prefer softer colors, wear sweet bubblegum pink with grey. The two colors are low key, but contrast nicely against each other, creating a subtly romantic vibe.
Hot Pink and Animal Prints
Take a cue from J. Crew’s collection and wear hot pink with a pop of animal print, which Jenna Lyons considers a neutral. The combination is more subtle with a python print (like above) but also works with cheetah and zebra stripes.
Soft Pink and Olive Green
Play with masculine and feminine influences by wearing a soft, baby pink with olive green. The combination is part military, part romance, and we love the juxtaposition of the two.
Pink and Red
This combination may feel way too Valentine’s Day for some readers, but if properly deployed, this tonal combination can be incredibly chic. Choose your hues carefully to avoid looking too garish. We recommend a soft blush pink (that’s almost nude) paired with bold cherry red or wine.
Pink and… Anything You Want
The truth is, the style rules and color pairings that used to be considered unbreakable seem to no longer apply. Trendsetters and fearless dressers aren’t afraid to try previously uncharted combinations — like sherbet hues of pink, yellow, and orange worn with white… And prints! Now go forth and get creative!
