On My Style Radar: Grown-Up Pink

a casual outfit gets the glamour treatment with a pink bag and gold accessories - details at une femme d'un certain age

In an earlier post, I shared some thoughts on balance between masculine and feminine elements in an outfit. I find that my preferred mix is shifting somewhat toward the feminine side, especially with regard to my accessories.

Think Pink?

During our stay in Vancouver, Lisa and I had a lot of conversations about style, and color was among the topics. There are certain colors I’ve been wary of because they can easily skew twee, and pink is one of them. But this season I’ve been seeing a lot of accessories, especially bags, in more sophisticated shades of pink. From nudes to mauves, they don’t scream “Barbie doll” and have that chameleon ability to act either as color or a neutral, depending on the rest of the outfit.

A light-colored bag can really make a dark or neutral outfit pop. Earlier in the year, I decided I needed a white bag, but never quite found The One. Now that I’ve tried on a couple of pink bags, I’ve shifted my focus. These sophisticated pinks have the same outfit lifting properties as white, but are softer and (IMO) easier to coordinate.

What’s your stance on pink? What shades do you find work best for you, either in clothing or accessories?
