I have friends who hate pink. They hate the color and will not wear it. I have to admit, that is not me. I definitely wear pink. What can I say? I like it. I know the bubble gum variety can be cloying, but in the right shade, it can be downright sophisticated. That’s the key. Use just a touch. And it is universally flattering! Pink makes everyone look good, and what’s wrong with that?
|I’m not usually drawn to hot pink, but when I saw this I started looking around for a jacket in this shade! Love it mixed with the black and ripped jeans.|
|Pale pink jeans mixed with neutrals.|
|Love this pale pink top!|
|Great pink jacket. Again paired with black and white.|
|The must-have coat of last Fall! I was literally on a mad hunt for a pink coat. Love this one.|
|Love these dressy shorts! (You can read my post about that trend here).|
And though I’ve always loved to wear pink, I’ve never thought much about pink in decorating. Yes, I love it in a girl’s room, but elsewhere? Pink in a living room? Not so much. But after it was declared a trend in 2015, I started seeing it in magazines more and more. And again, when used in moderation, it can be more sophisticated than you’d think.

When I went looking for some ideas to share with you regarding pink, there were so many! I literally could have filled a whole page! Here is just a sampling of what I found (*Please note that I’ve included some affiliate links for your convenience).
Macy’s (how cute is this?!)
The Well Appointed House (LOVE this!)
Banana Republic (So cute! And it’s on sale!)
I love pink in clothes, especially the pale ballet slipper shade. Our master bedroom was painted that shade years ago—yes, my husband is comfortable with is masculinity! 🙂 But I don't think I could go there today. The subtle touches in the images you've shared would be as far as I could go…maybe during spring.
