Bright Pink 2 (With a White Print)

Bright Pink for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: With a White Print

Quote of the day: ” Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.”  Nido Qubein

This series of the color bright pink was created in order to put together some outfits for Nancy, so she’d wear her new pants.  I thought a white print would be a piece of clothing most of us would already have in the closet.  I would like to propose that the pink color doesn’t  need to be in the white printed item, for it to look good.  The first post of the sequence paired the featured color with muted neutrals (here).

50’s Bright Pink: (Top):  My top is a more of a beige print with very little color in it besides neutrals.  That’s why I like the bright top underneath it—it adds some liveliness!

60’s Bright Pink (Pants):  Nancy’s shirt has a little bit of bright pink in the flowers so it seemed like a perfect accompaniment.

70’s Bright Pink (Accessories):  I tried this combination of pants and accessories with both a yellow t-shirt and white t-shirt.  My husband picked the yellow one!

  • Kathleen McDermott

    All pretty. I’d love to see Charlotte’s outfit with a pastel blue or pink! I often pair my animal print cardigans with a hot pink blouse.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I love the idea of animal print with hot pink, Kathleen!! I’ll have to try that soon!!

  • Rob

    Isn’t pink the new black?

    • Jodie Filogomo

      You have a great style sense!!!

    • Smart man!!

  • This series is so much fun. Love the pops of pink. My mom used to say she was too old for bright colors like hot pink but these pictures may change her mind!

    • I love to hear you say that….that’s truly my goal!!! Thanks for reading Cynthia!!

  • Such an interesting idea to add it to a white print.. I have a large wardrobe and had to laugh because my first thought was do I have a white print? I saw Mom’s pants and instantly realized indeed I do. You are certainly giving Nancy some wonderful ideas to wear with her pants!

    • I picked the white print because we probably all have it, but don’t realize it! Thanks for your fun response!!

  • Nancy

    Thanks for the compliments. I love pink but that bright pink took some getting use to. Now I love them!

  • Loving these looks too! I’m so glad you got an up close photo of your mom’s pants. LOVE the print! Nancy needs to get these pants in every color…she looks FAB in them!

    • Hah!! You’ll laugh when I tell you that she did go back and got the white ones and the black/white prints ones (they are super cool)!!

  • I love how everyone wore pink differently! It is such a great color, both in large and small doses 🙂

    • It is such a happy color, isn’t it? Thanks for your continued support Tara!!

  • Mary Anne

    Nancy looks wonderful in her pink pants. Pink is my favorite color. You’ve inspired me so much I might have to get a pair.

    • Thanks Mary Anne….the nice thing was they weren’t very expensive. We got them at jcpenneys!!! Thanks for reading!!!
