Bright Pink for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: With a Muted Neutral
This post came to be as I sorta/kinda talked Nancy into buying these fabulous bright pink pants. I remember when I first got my red jeans, and I felt very conspicuous in them and would only wear them with dark colors. But as time went on I found that they paired very well with other colors. Thus I want to show how good Nancy will look in these pants when matching them with different combinations.

I told Nancy I’d start out with styling these pants with muted neutrals to ease her into the thought of having such a flashy color on her legs! For us other models, we got to wear bright pink in different pieces. Make sure to see how we styled them with dark blue and a white print also.
50’s Bright Pink: (Top): My mom made this vest dress over 25 years ago. I probably didn’t need the pink pin on the pocket, but it seemed so plain otherwise.
60’s Bright Pink (Pants): The color of the pants really pops against the grey & black—I love it! Nancy actually made this necklace at one of her women’s retreats!
Pants: Liz Claiborne (here)~~Jacket: Halogen (similar here)~~Shirt under: Claudia Richard (similar here)~~Shoes: Cherokee (similar here)~~Necklace: Nancy made it (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Watch: (similar here)
70’s Bright Pink (Accessories): I put mom in her pink shoes and accessories to lighten up the outfit. The necklace is a little hard to see in pictures, but in person and up close, it adds moxie!!
Thanks so much for taking your time to read my styling blog! What would you wear with your bright pink pants?
