how to wear pink like a boss

Scroll down to content

It’s one of the hottest colors of the season and THE pantone color of the year. Rose Quartz, or pastel pink, is a hue not often associated with strong, independent girl-boss wardrobes.  But times they are a changin’. Since the 1950s, pastel pink has been the go-to color for identifying all things traditionally  considered feminine and girly and is, historically, mostly associated with baby and kids-wear. Lately, however, it has been popping up all through the runway shows. Appearing in different iterations for a couple of seasons now. And people are finally starting to take notice starting with a pink coat trend that was all over street style blogs last year.

Now, the colors popularity is skyrocketing to new heights. Pretty rose hues are popping up all across the fashion spectrum, not just in outerwear. My favorite way to wear this trend is to look for pieces with a more structured shape. The clean lines paired with pastel hues create a nice contrast that adds interest to any ensemble.


But if structured shapes aren’t your thing, here a couple ideas to keep in mind while you look  for pieces in pink shades.

  • Head-to-toe hues can be a lot of color in one look leaving your ensemble feeling one dimensional. To keep from feeling too juvenile pair rose shades with whites, creams, or nudes for a polished look that will take you from brunch to the boardroom.
  • Go big or go home… Try finding large graphic floral prints in your rosy hue, it grounds the look and keeps it from appearing to sweet or dainty.
  • If you feel like pink clothing isn’t your style but you still want to try the trend. Think about finding accessories in this pastel shade. As I mentioned before the color goes great with neutrals but it looks equally fantastic with navy or denim.
