Layering With a Blush Sweater

I’ve always been and black, white and grey kind of girl (woman?). But I have to admit that blush has slowly gotten under my skin. If I had unlimited disposable income, I would be rolling in blush clothing right now. But as it stands, I’ve allowed myself to get just a few blush pieces and not get carried away. And this blush sweater is one of my favorite pieces that I’ve added to my closet this year. It’s cashmere and so soft. And the color is divine.

I’m not sure what it is about blush that I find so irresistible. It’s probably because it’s quite a neutral color really. It’s not a crazy pink. It’s subtle and even sophisticated.

I have to admit, though, that blush can be difficult to work into my existing wardrobe. It’s great to pair with white (for spring and summer) and with grey. But I have a lot of black, and it doesn’t pair well with black. But I stumbled upon a great style hack. When pairing blush with black, I layer on brown accessories to soften the contrast. And adding a touch of white (such as a shirt peeking through) helps to create a visual separation between the black and the blush.

How to wear a long black coat like a style blogger

wearing black all black layers for winter style outfit ideaThe key to wearing black from head to toe in winter, and any other season really, is playing with texture. Done right, wearing all one color doesn’t have to be boring. Texture adds just the right amount of interest and makes the outfit cool.

Here I’ve paired a chunky black sweater, with big, exaggerated knit, a smooth black wool coat, and leather leggings (for a bit of sleek shine). To further add interest to the outfit, I finished it off with a neutral suede bag and booties. The suede adds a further layer of texture. Both the bag and the booties are intricately detailed and textured, and they stand out against the black canvas of the outfit. So while to whole outfit is very monochromatic, it certainly isn’t boring.
