Style Perspectives: Shades of Pink

March 09, 2016, by Daily Style Finds

 WELCOME to Week 2 of Style Perspectives.
I am Lisa from Daily Style Finds, and I am the host this week.
Thank you to everyone that joined our link-up last week, and helped it be a successful first week.  Also, thanks to Leslie for a great start - she is a big act to follow.  We hope you will join us again this week - and share it with your friends - #theblendedblogstyle

Our theme this week is “Shades of Pink”.  At first, I wondered why I picked this theme - because if you had asked me a few years ago to wear something pink - I would not have been able to find one item of pink clothing in my closet.  Up until recently, pink was not a color I gravitated to; however, with blush being the color of the year - and the resurgence of neon hot pink - pink has found its way into my closet.

And, I have found that pink can be a very versatile color to have in your closet - here are just a few ways to incorporate it into your daily style.

neon pink, neon yellow, white denim

With spring around the corner, pink pairs really well with white denim - and for an additional accent of color - accessorize with yellow.  If you are thinking about shoes - the cognac/caramel color works well, or you could also go with leopard print.  (Right now I am wearing my look with blue denim because I have still not found a great pair of white jeans - any suggestions??? And, the ones I did have - I somehow lost - I think I may have left them on vacation last summer.)

pink with black and grey

Blush or a hot pink work well with black and grey.  I love the contrast of the pink with bold black.

hot pink, leopard, nine west 2016

For me, leopard is a neutral that works with just about anything.  It is my go to shoe. I wear my leopard pumps so much - that I buy a new pair almost every year - sometimes two.  I actually just found one of my favorite pumps - on sale - so I decided to replace the ones I have because they are starting to look a little worn.
