Dear Pantone…

By

I respectfully submit to you that the color of the year is not, after all, Tangerine Tango; but is in fact, Blush…

(all photos from here.)

…as evidenced by the bevy of blush-colored gowns at last night’s Golden Globe awards (and that’s not even all!).  This color was one of the first trends I noticed as I watched the red carpet coverage, and I think it’s FRILLING.  For the record, I think this color speaks much better on television than it does up against the red carpet in still photos; the photos don’t do them justice.  If you saw them, you know.

Ahhh, I’m in love with this color! 3 reasons why:

  • It’s essentially neutral.  It can be worn pretty much anywhere khaki or beige can.
  • It’s funner than beige cause it’s pink’s cousin.
  • Every skin tone can find a shade to flatter. If you have a very pale skin tone that tends to get washed out by creamy/lemony/pale shades, try wearing it on the bottom, layering with other pieces, or wearing a slightly more saturated shade.

I’m glad to know that Aurelia made sure I was on top of this color trend when she got me this sparkly cardigan (aka spardigan) for Christmas, which has been making regular appearances in my day-to-day life.

I also love Shana’s recommendation to pair blush with white.

How are you wearing it?
