Outfit of the Week: Blushing for Spring


Forget shades of gray: Working with multiple tones of  blush (grounded up from red) can work in an outfit when balanced with a contrasting color and texture, like this faded blue chambray cotton shirt from Madewell. Polish it off with Eddie Borgo's gold chain bracelet and a pair of Valentino's rockstud pumps (a classic, or just ubiquitous at this point) to make the look feel rich.
