Pink & Grey for the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s with denim!

Quote of the day: “There is only one success-to be able to spend your life in your own way.” Anonymous

Since grey is a popular neutral for the season, I thought we’d add some femininity to it with a little pink action.  Pink is a very good way to soften the blahness of grey but I will warn the silver haired goddesses out there:  a light pink (or any pastel) does tend to make you look washed out.  One way to counteract this colorlessness is to go with a darker hued pink (think more raspberry or fuchsia) especially if it’s close to your face.  You can also add another neutral to the mix for added excitement!  If you still want to wear pastels, just make sure you add some bronzer to your makeup and a bright lipstick (my cure for anything!)

For this first of three series I’ll show pink & grey with the classic denim!

50’s Pink & Grey: This is one of my favorite cardigans, so obviously I love the pink/grey combo.  I consider the sweater dressy so I combined it with this shirt (which has stripes of faux leather) and jeans to make it more casual.

60’s Pink & Grey:  The grey moto jacket sweater is featured all over the stores this season.  Nancy and I got this at the Rack on a recent shopping expedition!  The style and gray color  made it easy to insert the pink sweater under it!

70’s Pink & Grey: Having a grey cardigan in your closet is most likely very common, so just like for the 60’s version above, I placed a pink sweater underneath it and then added some interest with the earrings & bracelet.

Pink & Grey for you:

  • Kathleen McDermott

    Soft pink (or blue, lilac, yellow or peach) with grey is a match made in heaven. Grey just lends itself to pastels. I love all 3 outfits, but your darling embellished cardigan and Charlotte’s stunning cardigan are items I covet!

      Thanks Kathleen!!
      I never thought about grey like that, but it does lend itself to pastels since it’s lighter in nature!!
