A while ago I had a male co-worker say to me with a tone of authority in his voice "I hear blue is the new black." He then asked a bit sheepishly "What does that mean?". Argh...men.
I don't consider myself 'fashion forward", I am more classic, but I like to be current and aware of the trends. Each year Pantone, the world-renowned authority on color and provider of color systems, publishes "Colors of the Year". You may not even realize it, but these colors will be all over home interiors, fashion, advertising, and where ever else color is important.
I will confidently say, this Spring, blush (pale dogwood is Pantone's name) IS the new black.The pastel shade gives all skin tones a rosy glow. I keep my clothes simple and classic but stay on trend with accessories and statement jewelry.
I keep my clothes simple and classic but stay on trend with accessories and statement jewelry. Gemstones with a soft flush of radiant pink or rose gold make an impression without overpowering. I will be wearing them with my blacks, grays, and whites this Spring.
