Pretty in Pink

Good morning everyone! For today's post I am excited to partner with Shopbop and ShopStyle to talk about one of my favorite trends this season - the color pink. Personally, I feel that pink is a rather misunderstood color because it often gets equated with being overly girly and somewhat uncool, but in my opinion, it all depends on styling, and there is certainly a way to wear pink in a very fashionable way.

One of the ways I like to wear pink is head-to-toe. This may sound counterintuitive, yet as long as you keep to strong or understated shapes and silhouettes, head-to-toe pink can create quite an impact which is both polished and sophisticated. For today's look, I chose to go with not-so-basic basics to create a monochrome look combining various textures like mohair, silk, leather and suede. Each and every piece I'm wearing in this look certainly has personality, yet isn't overly embellished which is why the look has a rather sophisticated vibe and doesn't look overly girly. Another styling trick I often use when wearing pink is adding cool accessories like mules rather than heels, and a pair of cool shades. The pink suede mules I got from Shopbop the other day are definitely my favorite pair at the moment. Aside from being very comfortable, I love this particular shade of pink because it wears like a neutral, yet adds just the right touch of color to your look! Finishing touch - yet another recent Shopbop score, this cute mini floral-print leather tote. As I have mentioned before, I rarely wear floral prints, yet there is something really charming about this particular one. Minimalist and soft, I love the way it pairs with various shades of pink but also with anything denim, and of course you know that versatility is the name of my game.
