How to Wear Pink During Breast Cancer Awareness Month
During the month of October we are giving 20% off the dry cleaning of all pink items. We will also donate 5% of the dry cleaning sales for pink items to The Ellie Fund to help support local families effected by breast cancer. If you’re not sure of the most stylish ways to add pink to your outfit, dont worry. Here are a few great tips by stylist, Christina K. Pierce, on how to incorporate pink into your wardrobe this month.
With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, it is a perfect opportunity to pull out the pink and blush tones in your closet. Though most of us love pink, many struggle with finding ways to wear the hue without looking overly “cutesy” or like their childhood Barbie. Here are some tips on how to wear pink in ways that will keep you looking fresh and trendy this fall season:
Pink suede is a great way to add texture and a pop of femininity to any outfit. It pairs great with any neutral base such as beige or brown and even compliments navy and winter white. Incorporating pink suede into your footwear is a great way to spice up a desk to dinner outfit while grabbing drinks with your girlfriends.
A more contemporary way to wear pink and incorporate some edge is to pair the color with black and grey. Selecting a soft blush pink is a great shade to pick when wearing this trend. Look for blouses with piping or contrast color collars to add a sharp contrast to an otherwise soft look.
Cutouts are a fun way to set a top or cocktail dress apart from the rest and despite popular belief, you do not need to be magazine toned to pull off the look. Look for shapes that are less form fitting and won’t allow for cutouts to be too tight that can make even the tautest of skin look like it is trying to break free. Cutouts by the shoulders, decollate, and arms are also ways to pull off the trend more subtly and conservatively.
