What colors and prints can you pair with blush pink?

What to Wear With Blush Pink

Trying to figure out colors that go well with blush pink? I’m all about adding color to your outfits, and today we’re talking all about one of my favorite colors, and which colors you can pair with it.

 

Blush pink is one of my favorite colors to wear in the spring and summer. I just got THESE pants from Spanx in gorgeous soft blush pink, and I wanted to show you a few colors that you can pair with this color this summer. And if you’re on the fence about these pants, they are so good. They’re comfortable, have great tummy control, and come in a few colors, are available in several lengths and extended sizing, and my code MERRICKXSPANX works for 10% off plus free shipping and returns.

I’m wearing a size XS in regular length, and if you’re in between sizes, size up.

This is my third post in my “what to wear with…” color series. If you missed them, definitely check out my WHAT TO WEAR WITH OLIVE GREEN and WHAT TO WEAR WITH NAVY BLUE posts.

So today I’m showing you WHAT TO WEAR WITH BLUSH PINK.

These posts are to help you think outside the standard white, cream, and black colors that we pair with the harder colors in our closet.

Here are 15 color and print ideas that you can pair with blush pink!

 

Colors that go well with blush pink

 

blush pink with navy

BLUSH PINK AND NAVY BLUE

  • Pink and blue together are an obvious choice, but shifting the standard pink and blue to blush and navy just adds a level of sophistication that is anything but baby shower colors.

blush pink with rust

BLUSH PINK AND RUST

  • Rust orange is one of those colors that I associate with fall, but paired with blush pink helps your rust orange pieces work really well for spring and summer. I love the tone on tone feel — you guys know I love monochromatic! I paired with some rust brown loafers for a business casual feel.

blush pink with purple

BLUSH PINK AND PURPLE

  • Pink and purple are another match made in heaven, but choosing a dusty purple and blush pink keeps it from feeling too juvenile. I added neutral flat sandals since the t-shirt makes the outfit feel casual.

blush pink with olive

BLUSH PINK AND OLIVE GREEN

  • This is literally one of my all time favorite color combinations. I will never get sick of it. I think they compliment each other so well, and create an amazing outfit. I wouldn’t wear an olive jacket in the summer, but I don’t own an olive shirt right now, so we went with this. Casual white sneakers keep the outfit feeling casual!

blush pink with charcoal gray

BLUSH PINK AND CHARCOAL GRAY

  • If you haven’t paired pink and gray together, you must! It looks amazing with charcoal gray (and all shades of gray…you’ll see another gray color later on). I chose a gray graphic tee, so I paired with high top sneakers for a fun and youthful look.

blush pink with black

BLUSH PINK AND BLACK

  • Black may seem like an unexpected choice with soft, blush pink, but trust me, it looks good! I paired with black shoes to balance the outfit.

blush pink with white

BLUSH PINK AND WHITE 

  • White is an obvious choice with blush pink, but I had to include it because it’s an important one for summer! Crisp white and blush pink are just so perfect together. I added some fun raffia sandals for a dressy feel, but you could do flat sandals and a white tee for a dressed down version of this.

blush pink with beige

BLUSH PINK WITH BEIGE

  • Blush pink and beige are very similar, so pairing them together creates a sort of monochromatic look. If I paired solid blush pink and solid beige together, it could be a pretty boring outfit that washed me out, but instead, I chose a beige graphic tee with some pretty colors added in, so I think it works! I added flat sandals to complete the casual look.

blush pink with coral red

BLUSH PINK AND HOT PINK/RED

  • Pink on pink? YES PLEASE. I love this soft blush pink combo mixed with the bold hot pink/red/coral top. It’s fun and bright and summery. Different versions of one color always work well together.

blush pink with mauve

BLUSH PINK AND MAUVE

  • This is another example of combining variations of the same color. Mauve and blush are both in the pink family, so they naturally work well together. I added a pair of printed flats to add a little interest to the solid colors!

BLUSH PINK AND LIGHT GRAY

  • Remember how I showed you charcoal gray and blush pink together above? Light gray works super well too with blush pink, but gives a totally different vibe! I chose a gray sweater vest and paired with some block heels for a business casual kind of outfit.

blush pink with floral

BLUSH PINK AND FLORAL

  • Does it get any more summery than this blush pink and floral combination? Try with other florals for different vibes…whatever you have in your closet! This would be perfect for a baby or bridal shower.

blush pink with denim

BLUSH PINK AND DENIM

  • Whenever I’m wearing colored or white pants, a denim top is one of my favorite tops to pair with it. Denim goes with anything and everything, so it’s a natural pairing with blush pink pants and feels so summery too! This top is a little more elevated, so wearing it with block heel sandals keeps the rest of the outfit a little more elevated.

blush pink with cream

BLUSH PINK AND CREAM

  • You may have noticed by now that I love soft color combinations. This cream and blush pairing is so beautiful! I balanced the outfit with sone cream wedges, and I think they also elevate the outfit so nicely.

blush pink with stripes

BLUSH PINK WITH STRIPES

  • Duh, this would not be a Merrick’s styling session without stripes! Stripes go with everything. They are perfect and so summery with blush pink. I added some wedges to elevate the look, but since my stripes are on a basic tee, you could definitely wear this with flat sandals or sneakers for a more casual feel.

    Hey Merrick! Is this the spanx stretch twill cropped wide pants in “pale pink”? on the spanx website, the pale pink look so much lighter than the ones you’re wearing in the photo. I wonder if it’s just the lighting? (I bought the pale pink pants after seeing you post this, but i am just second guessing on whether I got the right color?). all your choices look fabulous by the way!!
