TREND: Get Romantic with Rose

In past posts, I have expressed my love for all things neutral. Those items that seem so understated, yet make a statement nonetheless. They’re fresh and refreshing, simple and natural. For this week, I want to delve into specifics and capture a particular hue that brings out the romantic side in you.

This Fashionista is all about romance in her dusty rose top. The silky tank features asymmetric ruffles, ones that would flatter any body type and give that extra boost of femininity. She picks ruffles that have less volume than most, thus avoiding added bulk on her upper half. Finally, she combines the lighter shades with dark jeans and cognac boots to shift her outfit into fall.

Being a neutral, rose goes with almost any color and, although it has the obvious romantic connotations, can be paired with a range of styles. Layering a rose-colored dress under a leather jacket, á la Jessica Alba, has a perfect balance of sweet and tough. Moreover, this color has made its appearance in other types of materials. From watches to necklaces, rose gold has also made its impact on jewelry trends for the past few years. If you took note from last week’s post and love the idea of an oversized watch, instead of yellow gold or silver, go for rose gold. The subtle pink-toned metal makes for a good middle ground.

Hint: If you really want to tackle this trend, pick up a pair of rose gold metallic heels. They were all the rage at Paris Fashion Week and a hot new metallic for spring.
