What colors look good with light pink? In this blog post we´ll take a look at the many ways you can mix and match light pink with other colors, including prints!
Jessica Alba, while on her way to Ralph Lauren’s runway show, was seen rocking a long baby pink chiffon skirt teamed with a black cropped pullover with matching black high heels, a black patent handbag, and black sunglasses. This statement is basically about pink versus black.
Pink is the favorite of most lovers of beauty because it´s a universal symbol of love. It combines the energy of red and white, provides calm and relaxed feelings, as well as reflects acceptance and contentment.
I prefer the simple light pink—soft, gentle hue—that is easy to the eyes. And I find it to be the most elegant shade among the family of pink. You can go head-to-toe with it and not appear like a sorority queen, or you can blend it nicely with other soft hues such as light yellow, baby blue pink, soft white, and light green. You can also create a tonal combination with darker shades of pink for an effective lengthening of your vertical line.
As you can see, aside from black, there are many colors that will complement light pink. However, for the pusposes of this post, let´s focus on the colors that are the easiest and the safest to match with light pink. Let´s dive in.
1. Light pink with faded blue and neutral snake print
Even if your outfit is casual, but you team together light colors to match your light pink, the result is always elegant. So for this outfit, the lightpink is paired with white and light blue. A snake print which has more white and gray in it is perfect to complete the look.
2. Light pink with lighwashed black jean
Another pretty in pink is this slouched fit cashmere sweater with dropped shoulder and ribbed hem. Because it´s slouchy, it looks great with a pair of skinny jeans or tight leather pants.
Just like you will never go wrong with pink and black, you can always pair light pink with light washed black jeans.
3. Light pink with silver and beige
Created to mystify and amaze, this feminine light pink strapless dress boosts a lovely chiffon bodice that beautifully drapes and a tulip-layered skirt which swishes with every step. Complete it with beige strap sandals and beige clutch for a dainty, super adorable feminine look.
Light pink pairs well with silver and beige.
4. Light pink with black and beige animal print
Sometimes you may want to match a light pink dress with a pair of light pink high heels. Color matching your clothes and accessories is a trie and true style strategy. But when you do opt for this approach, remember that light pink always looks nice with a nuetral animal print. So feel free to add a black and beige animal print clutch to the look.
5. Light Pink with Dark/Navy Blue
Any shades of light pink look good with most dark colors, including dark or navy blue. As we see in this look, a fitting light pink cardigan can be worn tucked in a highwaist casual trousers. But you can also apply this color pairing with your other clothes. For example, you can pair a dark blue jacket with a light pink dress.
6. Light Pink with Gray
Get a duster length cardigan to wear over a top and crop jeans, then complete the look with high heels.
But really, this post is about colors to let´s focus on the colors. Gray is probably one of the colors that will always look good with pastel colors. And light pink is pastel. So feel free to match any light pink clothes you have with gray, as well as beige.
7. Light Pink with Shades of White
If all else fails, or if for whatever reasons you don´t have any of the colors mentioned above, you can always opt for the neutral white.
We know that white comes in many different shades. In fact, I noticed that light pink looks better with other shades of of white such as the sand white, dirty white, or light cream, than the real, sparkly white.
