While it may not be new, summer fashion has always been synonymous with color. As seasons change and flowers bloom, a subconscious desire to shed dull dark layers for breezy whites and lights takes control, and we look for ways to work the season’s newest hue into our closets. This season’s “it” color? Blush. Combining bold red with crisp white for a barely-there feminine aesthetic, this fresh light pink hue has mass appeal for more than just millennials; it has captured designers’ imaginations too, dominating runways in its various sneaker, sandal, slip-on, and bootie iterations. Read on to discover the ways you can incorporate your new blush crush into your next wardrobe refresh.
