Trend Spotting: Blush Pink
“You look lovely.”
“Oh stop it, I’m blushing…”
“I know you are. It’s so beautiful I can’t look away.”
Blush Pink originally made its appearance on runways in Autumn/Fall 2013. This feminine hue has since stolen hearts and is one of Spring's most sought-after colors. Blush Pink is popping up everywhere, from short pink sundresses down to blush pink shoes.
“A hue that ignites more partisanship than the presidential debates, pink is making a play for universal acceptance. And the season's runways make a strong case in its favor. In its more restrained state of pastel, blush and icy shades, pink's inherent femininity and ability to flatter dissipate its more saccharine tendencies- one pencil skirt at a time.” - Harper’s Bazaar
The Heart of the Matter
Give us more than a superficial glance and you’ll catch a glimpse of our unique selves. It’s there in the depths of our eyes, the grace of our bodies, and the steady strength of our souls. We are women.Here’s the thing about blush pink – it captures the essence of being a woman perfectly. Our elusive mystery, our keen intuition, inherent sexiness, and the softness that our world so badly needs.

Lauren Conrad said it best: “Blush made a big splash on the spring runways of designers like Balmain, Christian Dior, and Isabel Marant. It is the ultimate feminine color, and it can be light enough to even be considered a neutral. This hue can be worn almost any way, and for any occasion this spring. You can wear a monochromatic blush ensemble, or just add a few pops of pink here and there.”
