How to Make Pink More Badass
Hope you’re having a good Sunday. The sun is finally shining again here in London. This weekend has been a fun one! Thanks to my friend, Sarah, we started off the weekend speed dating. It was an interesting experience, but I def didn’t meet my soul mate lol. Yesterday, I had brunch at Dishoom, a Bombay restaurant, with my friend, Vincenza, which was delish. Then we walked around some of the vintage shops together. Last night, the roomies and I watched Salmon Fishing in the Yemen with Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt, which was a lot better than I expected. Today, I’ve been running around getting things ready for Fergus and my mom’s visit this week. I can’t wait to see them. Anyway, on to this week’s post.
For this week’s post, I wanted to talk about the color pink and how to make it a little more wearable without looking like a twelve-year old girl. I know it can be a bit of an intimidating color if you’re trying to look more mature or just don’t want to look too girly. Personally, I’ve always loved pink, but I do avoid it if I’m trying to look older. Over the years, though, I’ve come up with some tips to make pink more wearable.
Pair with Dark Colors
The first step to making pink more wearable is pairing your pink with some darker shades. For my outfit, I chose black and olive green. Darker colors will contrast the pink. A good contrast is needed, especially if you have blonde or lighter hair.
Layer on the Leather
A great way to badass anything up is to add leather to your outfit. I chose to go with my All Saints biker jacket to add some leather and some texture to the outfit. Leather always adds coolness which is sometimes needed with shades of pink.
Trade your flats for Boots
There’s nothing like a pair of Dr. Martins or other chunky boots to take a shade like pink to another level. I recommend choosing some boots with a bit of character, whether it’s laces, buckles, etc.
If you’re afraid pink is too girly for you, maybe these tips will help you give it a go again. Thank you so much for reading this week’s post.
