Pretty with pink

Pink – right now a color with all sorts of trendy connotations. Pale pink, normal pink , girly pink, piggie pink, neon pink, millennial pink – for some time now almost all I see is pink. Millennial pink, to be more precise. It has come to a point where I’m starting to somehow like it. Maybe I’ve become infected?

As I have found out, millennial pink is the color of millennials. Come to think of it, I would say that the clues were there all along. Pink as a little girl, pink in my teens and now – pink everywhere around me and especially on Instagram – nevertheless I never got tired of it and love it all the same.

Contrary to the piggy and girly pink of the recent ears, the millennial pink is a pastel tone with a touch of peach and a slight salmon shade. 

The pink, being millennial or other type, I like wearing in any combination, but never being dressed fully in pink like a big pink candy. I like combining this sweet color with some other colors – for instance with white like here and accented accessories. I choose the jeans ones, namely jeans over-knee boots and a jeans bag. 

As you already know, I love animals and for this shoot a dog of a friend of mine posed together with me – of course also dressed in a trendy millennial pink jacket. We looked so well together that people who saw us came to us asking for which media we are making the shoot, so I even had to sign some cards :).

Love wearing long coats?

I always believed that a long coat is a super versatile piece of clothing that a woman should have in her winter wardrobe. I got convinced about that only after I started wearing one, because a cool, well-fitting long coat instantly elevates my look from super casual to dapper formal.

Moreover, it’s very easy to make an outfit with it – one of my favourite approaches is to just throw the coat over a simple long sweater and a pair of over knee boots – the result is amazing. Such a combination can also work in a formal meeting or event.

Wool is a preferred fabric for such an overcoat. But if you’re planning to wear an overcoat in the summer as well then go for 100% cotton. My coat here is with 50% Camel fur und 50% wool. The style is in your hands – there are many different types of long coats – no hard rules here, you can pick the one you like the most, but pick the length according your figure. The one here is a bit oversized, because I like to wear it with thick layers underneath.

I think a black fedora hat matches to a long coat nicely – it’s a chic and formal addition, in a fashion way.
