Every season I seem to find a color combo that I gravitate towards. Last Spring it was tan and white, and this fall, blush and green. I became obsessed with the muted shade of blush while looking for my wedding gown last year. Funny enough, I’ve never been much of a pink type-of-girl. However, I fell in love with the pale shade and was determined to wear blush down the aisle. For some, blush pink isn’t an easy color to wear but it works quite well with a slew of other shades. The key is to anchor it with a darker shade as in my look below.
We all are aware that 70s fashion had made a huge comeback this fall and one of the main pieces I looked forward to owning, beside suede everything, was a pair of extreme flares. It’s not for everybody but I love it! To me, style is about taking chances while still being you. While flare bottoms can be tricky, the key is to:
- have them hemmed in an appropriate length (go to the tailor’s with different heels to see just how many inches should be cut off). They should skim the floor not mop.
- Look for high-waisted styles as they help cinch your waist at the narrowest part of your torso further helping in that elongating effect.
- Keep proportions cropped. Go for a tucked in blouse, sweater, shirt or a crop top. You can always top it with a longline sweater or duster as I did for added warmth or visual interest.
I paired the bottoms with a blush pink lightweight sweater and longline cardigan and kept the accessories at a minimum with just a blush colored wool fedora and coat.

Blush can work as the main color in a monochromatic look or act as an accent shade that works with both warm and cool colors. The following colors will help balance the light and airy shade.
- Olive Green
- Emerald Green
If you’re not ready for blush clothing, you can opt for blush accessories. I’ve compiled a few blush colored options, along with khaki green, below perfect to pair with items you may already own.
