Fashion Friday: Back to basics with blush and black

In Fashion, Style by LisaLeave a Comment

I love the look of combining blush and black for both day and night. I recently tried on a few items to try to emulate this trendy combination and quickly learned that not all blush tones are flattering on. When pairing your blush items, try to stick with other neutral tones that work well with your coloring. I find that when pairing these neutral tones, I like to stick with black as the base of many of my outfits, making blush my accent color.

Blush and Black Fashion

The basic

A black tank dress works well with almost everything in my wardrobe. I can wear it to work with a neutral vest and some flats of comfortable heels. The Aritzia dress is fitted, yet conservative enough for work.

The simple addition

I love this barely-there, understated, “Love” necklace.

The bomber

This bomber is the right shade of blush and will be a great little piece on a cool morning or early evening outing.

Shiny Bomber, NLY Trend, $80

The neutral lip

The Revlon ColorBurst lip balm comes in almost any shade, I am currently wearing this neutral shade daily.

The lunch bag clutch

This lunch bag-looking clutch is inspired by the traditional brown paper lunch bag and is a timeless look.

The shoes

These suede booties are a must have for warm summer nights, daytime outings, long days at work and for travel. They are super comfortable and go with almost any outfit.

Open toe sandals in a neutral shade are a great basic.

The long topper

This long vest fits nicely over the fitted black dress and adds coverage to a simple outfit.

The sparkle

The urban look of this bracelet is sporty, yet can be deemed as evening wear because of the crystals. It is comfortable and easy to wear.
