Color Story: Beautiful Pieces in Spring-Appropriate Blush (Photos)

The girly pastel appears on countless accessories, shoes, and more this season.

This week we’re inspired by Gal Meets Glam author Julia Engel’s monochromatic ensemble.

Perhaps our favorite annual sartorial transition happens between winter and spring. The drastic change in temperature means retiring the blacks and navys of our cold-weather closet for more dazzling accessories and brighter hues. 

Pastels are a great way to ease into the change of seasons. With fashion month in its final days and the world’s eye on street style, we’ve taken a particular liking to blush—a fresh, chic shade of pale pink that flatters all skin tones and styles. We were particularly taken with Gal Meets Glam author Julia Engel’s stunning use of monochrome, using varying shades of the pink to create a very sophisticated look—one that is both winter- and spring-appropriate (and that prompted us grab the next book clutch we could get our hands on). Click through the slideshow for a look at 14 pieces we’re coveting in the girly shade.
