How to Wear the Blush Pink Trend


Nope, it’s not just your imagination – the pink trend is EVERYWHERE right now… and I can’t get enough of it. From Glossier campaigns, to Calvin Klein ads, to Kinfolk magazine and Acne Studios, the ‘tumblr pink’ era is upon us, and I don’t think it’s going anywhere anytime soon. Often described as a “rose quartz”, it has become the most ubiquitous colour in fashion branding and you might’ve first heard of it when Pantone, fashion’s chief colour measurement system, announced it as the colour of 2016.

Pink has been one of my key branding colours for Sunday Chapter so this is a trend I can definitely get on board with. Plus the thought of marble, rose gold and pink together is very aesthetically pleasing, don’t you think? And YES, SO very 2016, I know. Even for the side of the world entering into autumn/winter, it’s still remains a trending colour for the season.

I’m like a magpie when it comes to anything within the very cute salmon to blush hue and so when I spotted this pink silky blouse, I couldn’t walk away. I find it pretty hard to find a flattering blouse that doesn’t cost me a small fortune. They just don’t seem to fit well with me. But this one is a different story. First I fell in love with the colour, then the fit, and then the texture. Silk shirts are another of my recent obsessions.


Blush will add a touch of femininity to your outfit, so I love to pair it with edgier styles. There are so many ways to wear this trend and I think the main thing I love about it is the simplicity. Try a blush camisole with a leather jacket, a blush silk wrap dress, or a dusty rose jacket. It’s all beautifully understated.

    It’s such a stunning shade! I love that it’s subtle, but not TOO subtle? Stands well on it’s own, but not too in your face. The shade suits you SO much.

  • The silk and blush combo is a total winner! I’ve just bought a pair of straight leg trousers in this shade and although they’re way out of my comfort zone I can’t wait to style them with black like you’ve done here :)

    Earlier this year, I wasn’t a big fan of the color pink. But when blush pink came around and became a trend in the fashion world, I couldn’t help falling in love with it quite excessively. My wardrobe is filled with a lot of pinks at the moment and I’m totally okay with that! I love the shirt you’re wearing, I have a similar one from Stradivarius that has a Victorian feel to it. x

    • Same here!! I used to avoid pink at all costs and now I’m drawn to it, haha. Oh so pretty! Stradivarius have some gorgeous items. :) xx

  • your shirt is so beautiful. my outfits are mostly monochrome and i like adding colour by wearing a blush pink.

    • Thank you so much Elena! That sounds exactly the same as my wardrobe!! Can’t keep away from black and white but it’s always nice to add a bit of colour :) xx
