Today at an all-day leadership training session, 5 of the female participants were wearing variations of the soft neutral, blush pink that makes Caucasian skin tones positively glow. This fresh color is a wonderful substitute for ordinary white blouses and T shirts and mixes with nerly any neutral – black, brown, navy, taupe and sage green for example. Each woman personalized the blush to flatter her individual color pattern. Here are three of them …
Erin – on the left – has high-contrast coloring (dark hair, paler skin) so she paired her blush with black elements – both solid and patterned – to echo that light-dark element and make the look her own. So much better than trite, bright white and black would be.
Michelle – center – has softer coloring so she needed a bit stronger garment color to avoid fading out. She wears it with minimal contrast though. The creamy shell heart necklace adds a focal point within an overall soft look.
Molly – on the right – was cozy in this beautiful pashmina. Its pattern echoes both the soft warm golden colors in her hair, and also the shapes in her hairstyle. I had seen this on her while the group was traveling together in Israel in November, but didn’t get a chance to photograph her until today.
How can you integrate this flattering color into your own wardrobe? If you haven’t tried it yet, now is the time!
