Wearing Pink In The Fall

Interesting Ways To Add Pink To Your Fall Wardrobe

slip on sandals for Fall

Hello everyone!  Today, I'm sharing how I add pink to my fall wardrobe. Pink may not be a color you think of for Fall, but I love it year round! 

To keep the outfit more "Fall like" I started with a creme tunic top and tan pants as the base. Here I am in my kitchen with my ever present glass of tea wearing the base outfit. 

Then I topped the base outfit with what I call my "hot pink" duster (or kimono I'm never certain what to call these cover-ups). I guess the pink color of this duster could be termed fuschia or even magenta, but I'm sticking with pink!

The duster material is scarf-like and has a square pattern throughout the material. It is long enough to cover up nicely and adds just a tiny bit of warmth for a cooler day in early Fall.

One thing I really like about this duster is that it has separate sections at the front that can be worn down like I'm styling it today or pulled up and tied in the front while the back portion of the duster remains hanging down. So, it's a very versatile piece. You'll notice that because the duster color is brilliant, I chose to keep accessories light and minimal. Others may like adding lots of colorful accessories to add even more color, but I felt like "less is more" today.

So, with minimalism in mind, I added my favorite clear bracelet and this pretty pink "statement" ring that I just bought last week. It's a pretty Paparazzi ring and I want to give a shout out to Keonna Geer the Paparazzi rep I bought the ring from. She is a sweet lady and one of the awesome bell ringers in our church handbell choir. If you are interested in any Paparazzi jewelry (only $5 per piece!) click on Keonna's name to be taken to her site.

In this close-up of the ring you can really see the pretty pink color! In addition to wearing this piece as a ring I also plan to use it as a scarf holder and as a ponytail holder. You can get really creative with rings if you think about it!

Simple pearl earrings complete the jewelry for this look. 

Our weather here is slightly cooler today but sandals are still A-Ok especially these tan color BZees sandals that are perfect for this time of year. I've always favored slip-on type sandals for my feet. I never did like thong styles between my toes and, unless they have velcro attachments, the sandals that wrap around the back of the ankle and buckle tend to slip off my foot, so I'm happy with a slip-on for sure!

So tell me, do you enjoy wearing pink tones even in the Fall? Hope you'll leave a comment and let me know. We don't have to retire colors we love just because the seasons change, in my opinion. Go look in your closet and pull out the colors you love and feel pretty in and keep on wearing them!

Until Next Time,

I really like this look, and I especially like your pink duster! The length is great, and it does seem perfect to layer for the fall. I agree that colors should not be assigned to one or two seasons. I'm actually looking for a pale pink sweater or long sleeved top to go with some pants I own, so I'm willing to wear pink in all seasons too.

What a pretty pink duster! Pink is one of my favorite colors, it's a happy color! I agree that it can be worn all year. Maybe you can show this duster again tied like you mentioned. That sounds so interesting and I'd enjoy seeing how that works! What a beautiful ring Debbie!

You look amazing in your pink duster!
I too love pinks and they are never out of my closet regardless of the season. I especially love the blush tones.

Like you, I enjoy pink and I have never allowed seasons t dictate my color palette. Nice job.

What a pretty and vibrant color Debbie! It looks great on you. I tend to wear pink as a blush pink or rose in the fall winter with greys. I love your ring! So gorgeous!
