It can be hard to muster the enthusiasm to wear anything other than shades of black, gray, and brown during winter. Break the cycle of monotony with a pink coat as the color is surprisingly to match. It looks great with pastels, jewel tones, primary colors, and neutrals. To get you started, here are some tips to wear your pink coat.
Casual wear: Though you might think about the combination of pink with jeans as unsophisticated, there is a modern way for the two to go together. You can pair a sophisticated pink coat with classic blue jeans and pointy-toe pumps, giving the look a much more grown-up reinvention. Also, if you’re going to indulge in the faux fur trend, pink is a great option as it is bold and quirky.
For newcomers into the trend, try baby pink as it is much more wearable than a bold fuchsia or ‘barbie’ pink and is just pale enough that one might mistake it as beige, which means you can play it as a neutral and wear it with pretty much anything.
Mixing pinks: If you’re not afraid of color, then this is a great look for you. Stick within the same color family, and change up the tones as it one of the easiest ways to color block. One such idea is to mix bright fuchsia with bubblegum pink and a pale nude in your ensemble. A word of advice, if you’re going to mix pinks, make sure you anchor your look with neutral hues like black and white.
Full feminine: Pink has always been considered a ‘girly’ color, so embrace it. Go all-out with an ultra-feminine look with colors like a powder pink which is perfectly feminine color.
Wardrobe staples: if you want to let your coat do all the talking, then keep the rest of your look simple by sticking to wardrobe staples such as white tees and black trousers. Leave a robe-style pink coat open as your outfit consists of neutral, boyish layers.
Go grey: Pink and gray is quite a chic color combination, and nothing works better than dusty rose and gray to wear into fall. Use this color pairing to make a fashion statement but with chunky knits and heavier fabrics to keep it appropriate.
Pink and red: If you are into wearing bold colors, pink and red really do go so well together. Choose a bright red if you want a sharper, eye-catching look, or go for a deeper burgundy if you would like a look that’s a touch more sophisticated. When it comes to more vibrant pinks, the simpler the shape of the coat, the better.
White and wonderful: Another great combination is pink and white. Any pretty lady will look like a delicious candy cotton concoction with her fluffy pink coat, set against stark whites.
Make it sporty: When you think of pink, you probably don’t immediately think ‘sporty’, but a blush-colored velvet coat paired with a sporty type of sweater and shirt, gives it a cool, down-town vibe.
