THE PINK SUIT | DO YOU DARE?
One of the hottest trends of Spring 2018 is the PINK SUIT. We have seen it all over the fashion blogs, on social media, and in almost every single one of our favorite boutiques. When I first saw the marketing photos for this pink suit from Zara, it was like love at first sight. The hue is impeccable, not too soft and not too harsh, and the gold toned buttons on the jacket give it even more of a feminine touch. I was completely sold when I saw the pants. I love anything with a high waist and the fact that it came with it’s own belt left me assured that I would be SNATCHED!
Now I know why a lot of people would have reservations about purchasing a PINK suit. I am a fiscally responsible fashion-lover and wear ability is becoming more and more important to me with every shopping binge. But there are so many ways to wear a pink suit outside of Easter Sunday, you just have to get a little creative. Here are a few ways to rock a pink suit and not feel like you wasted your money:
- A plain black or white tee/ button down shirt is a dead giveaway, but what about pairing the suit with a baby blue or sea foam green top?
- A pump with a suit is always a good idea, but feel free to switch it up with a strappy sandal or flats.
- Throw on a graphic tee with the trousers and a pair of white Converse or Nike Cortez sneakers.
- Pair the suit coat with a patterned blouse and a pair of jeans.
I decided to pair the suit with white pumps and a striped and floral embroidered blouse that I scored from H&M for $7.
Just a little reminder, don’t make a habit of splitting up your suit pieces. When a suit is cut, it comes from the same piece of fabric and is meant to be worn together. Splitting the pieces for separate looks causes the garments to be exposed to sunlight differently and manipulates the aging process. If you are not careful, you could end up with pieces that are now two different colors.
Will you be THINKING PINK this Spring?
In fashion. In life. In style. In love.
