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

Quote of the day: “Optimism: The doctrine that everything is beautiful, including what is ugly, everything is good, especially the bad, and everything right that is wrong….It is hereditary, but fortunately not contagious.”  Ambrose Bierce

As winter approaches, the fashions tend to go darker and more subdued.  This is a great reason to add the color pink since it is a warm color and the color of hope!  In this post I paired it with fuchsia which is a color that can look better next to the face for those silver haired beauties!  It’s a great addition since it’s a variation of purple and right next to red (pink is a lighter variation of red) on the color wheel.  See my previous pairing of pink & grey in Styling Discussion 1 and Styling Discussion 2.

50’s Pink & Grey: This vest is one I used to wear under a jacket for work, but today I wanted to show off the grey lace shirt instead.  I used the fuchsia as a scarf instead of a necklace. I went with a slightly baggier jean and for contrast added the heels!

60’s Pink & Grey: Grey jeans are super easy to find in the stores right now.  Some of your print cardigans or shrugs may already have fuchsia in them like this one of Nancy’s.  A plainish t-shirt helps contrast the silkiness of the jacket.

 70’s Pink & Grey: Mom has this tunic that already had the themed colors in it.  It’s a great length if you want to pull out leggings.  I added the color fuchsia with her shoes & scarf. (I mean, doesn’t everyone have fuchsia shoes….ha ha)!

    Great color combination. Lovely outfits. Love all the footwear (of course I have fuchsia shoes and sandals). Charlotte’s tunic is fabulous. Love your grey lace top. I love grey, and since I’m a summer, it’s a starring color in my palette. I have oodles of grey jeans and sweaters, from silvery to charcoal.

      I bet you have as many shoes as my mother does…because I don’t think I’ve met anyone else with fuchsia shoes!!
      I’m really glad grey has made a comeback lately—to me, it’s a better neutral than black!!

    Your mom MADE that sweater tunic?? Wow! It’s beautiful.
