18 New Ways to Wear Paler Shades of Pink


Unabashedly feminine, calmly pretty, and never too saccharine — blush hues feel almost edgy this time of year. Softer than stark whites or nudes, pale shades of pink are a refreshing choice when you just want something easy to wear that still adds a little color. Perhaps that's why they're appearing in the fall (Dior, Céline, Miu Miu) and resort (Acne Studios, Altuzarra) collections, as these shades are literally easy on the eyes,  and go well with a tan even after it fades. Pair these pinks with whites and other neutrals for a light, summer palette or with darker shades of fuchsia and cranberry for a monochromatic look. In more refined silhouettes, like Zara's double-breasted jacket or sporty silhouettes like ICB's knit dress, these pieces avoid froufrou territory (the opposite of Gwyneth's dress when she won the Oscar, or Andie Walsh's homemade prom dress in Pretty in Pink).  Click ahead to see a range of options to take you into the seasons ahead.
