Pink Suits: Blogger Edition

April 15th // Comment Here

Can you think of a color more feminine than pink? Every shade from florescent fuchsia to a beautiful blush carries an air of sweetness and vivacity that embodies womanhood. A combination of red and white, pink denotes the call to action emitted by the red and the potential for success and insight offered by the white.

Full of energy and passion a bold bright pink compliments all hair colors and skin tones alike. The richness of the hue plays well other bright colors like lime, aqua, royal purple as well as the basic black and white. I love how blogger, Laura Rose of Lara Rose Style styled this fuchsia pant suit with a graphic black and white tee. Keeping it casual with a casual top, yet still structured with a tailored pant and blazer.

While light pink is commonly referred to as baby pink, when a woman dons this pretty pastel hue, it is anything but childish. Try pairing it with neutrals like Tamara, fashion blogger from Tamara Chloe Style Clues, for a foolproof cotton candy chic ensemble and incorporate a print like a contrasting camouflage or chevron for some visual appeal.

If you aren’t ready to dive into a head to toe pink look, try on some suit separates in this dreamy shade. Blogger over at Miss Pouty, Sun, did a gorgeous job of wearing neutrals and complimenting pastel shades to balance her look. Pairing with similarly light colors such as white, beige and light blue, you help ease you into wearing this color in a full suit. Black and white are also a safe combination for trying out new color pairings. Keep this in mind when wearing any new shade for the first time! After a while, you can explore other color options. It’s all about having fun!

For a causal styling of suit separates, try a hot pink fitted blazer with your favorite pair of light wash denim. The denim acts as a balancing agent bringing the outfit from dressy to casual, even when paired with heels. Smart accessories like sleek sunglasses, a bold watch, and a belt at the waist are nice added touches. This is a great way to transitional from day into night, especially if you work in a semi-casual office setting. I love how blogger Mariann from Cashmere In Style, wore her go-to jeans with a brightly colored pink blazer!

I’m totally into this girly business chic look right now! How about you? Comment below and tell me your favorite way to wear this feminine color!

A suit can be one of your most valuable pieces of wardrobe, especially if you know how to style it the right way!

So many different looks for all the events in your calendar! Check out below how you can spice up your suit and let me know which ones you’re going to try! ;)

5 Stylish Ways to Wear a Suit

  1. Pair a dark chambray button-up with white suit pants for a more relaxed look this spring. It’s perfect for the office!
  2. For the weekend, pair your white blazer with shorts and sneakers for a more relaxed look. You can even add a stylish hat while you’re at it!
  3. If you need a girl’s night out look, grab your favorite blazer and skinny leather pants and you’re ready to go a la Kate Moss style!
  4. Don’t be afraid to mix two different suits together – especially if this involves a print suit!
