Bright Pink 3 (With a Darker Blue)

Bright Pink for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: With a Darker Blue

Quote of the day: “I don’t know a perfect person.  I only know flawed people who are still worth loving.” John Green

I love how the brilliance of this pink can brighten up any outfit.  Coupling it with a dark/royal blue is a great way to show contrast between the colors.  This combination would be super easy by pairing the bright pink with a dark denim.  I also showed it with a muted neutral (here) and a white print (here).

50’s Bright Pink: (Top):  Since my top has a bow at the neckline, I rarely wear a necklace with it.  Therefore I opted to wear statement earrings to add some sparkle!

60’s Bright Pink (Pants):  This top has such interest with the cowl neck and peek of gold studs!  When she first bought it, I immediately said, “oooh, that’ll go with those pink pants.”  Nancy’s not as convinced….what do you think?

70’s Bright Pink (Accessories): Maybe I should have had mom wear a more neutral top under the sweater to showcase this decorative necklace?

Below are some apparel that is available in bright pink for the top half (all under $15)

  • Jonet Gleason Wooten

    I’m such a fan of vibrant pink paired with blue. You each have styled these dynamic colors with such style. LOVE! Xo Jonet

  • Kathleen McDermott

    I love this color combination – it’s fabulous and I plan to do it with my hot pink skinny jeans and capris, and the reverse with my hot pink tops. All 3 outfits are stunning – I’d wear all of them. I’d put my pearls with yours and Nancy’s outfits and I’d drop Charlotte’s necklace much lower to showcase it against the vibrant pink top. They look great together. I want that necklace and earrings!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I think this is a fun color pairing too, Kathleen!!
      I really had to twist Nancy’s arm to get these pants (and I’m not really sure she wears them except on the blog)!!

    • Charlotte Miller

      I got the set (even on sale) at the old Never Pay Retail several years ago.

  • I really like the combos! I really love how you showcase a woman from each age group! Fabulous!!

  • I am so glad you stopped by my blog so I could find yours! What a great idea to show colors and styles on women of all ages! I love the blue and pink combo! I cant wait to see more of these fun posts! Susan

  • Nancy Siegel

    I love the blue outfits, but I cannot wear pink. I agree with you about your Mom’s necklace and blouse. I love the jewelry, but what else is new with me and jewelry. I almost bought the vest (black and white chain design, but the price I wanted came only in pink and white or black and pink. Maybe next time!!! Aunt Nancy

    • Of course you can wear pink Aunt Nancy!! There are many, many shades & even if it doesn’t look good around your face, you can wear it on the bottom half (or shoes). 🙂

  • I adore this bright pink. My colour exactly. I have high heeled slingback pumps in that colour and I pair them with…. a blue dress and a bright pink bag. So I am with you that this is a great combination. As for Nancy…most certainly should she wear this top with those trousers. Perfect combination. Which reminds me I have a top with similar studs but in silver lying in my closet, never worn. Shame on me. I will bring it out to play tomorrow.

    • Funny how we forget about items until we see them on others!!!

  • Navy and pink is a favorite color combo of mine and these all are fabulous. For Nancy to be really daring, pairing those pants with bright orange would do the Trick! She looks fabulous in this one!

  • Elisabeth

    I love all three outfits with the addition of pink.

    Love the color combo!

  • I would have never thought to put the bright pink with the dark blue. Love it!! All three looks are winners!

    • I probably would have shied away from this color combo even a year ago….but, hey, why not be somewhat flashy in my old age?
