Refine Your Spring Workwear With a Touch Of Blush

Take it from Harper's Bazaar: Blush is officially a neutral. Trend reports have elected pinkish pastels as a must-have in every spring wardrobe – workwear and weekend wear alike.

It should be noted that, like plenty of other clothing colors, "blush" isn't so much a definitive guide to textiles as it is an abstract term coined by fashion marketers.

A few weeks ago, I was on the hunt for a blush-colored dress to wear to an upcoming outdoor wedding. I admit that the hours spent perusing for pink dresses – before deciding on this chiffon shift dress from BB Dakota – was really half the fun. Though shopping would be much easier with a standardized color palette in place, it would also be a lot less fun.

Because of the ambiguity of blush fashion, clothing makers' interpretations of the color can vary pretty significantly. A search for "blush blouse," for example, returns a multitude of colored tops ranging from dusty rose to pale pink to light peach. You may also find your tint of choice under several other names: Pearl, salmon, and champagne are the most popular.

Despite such a wide variety, the majority of items characterized as blush will fall in the nude part of the color spectrum, making this pretty pastel a stylishly subtle wear-to-work option for spring. Blush is a toned-down alternative to bubblegum pink, baby pink and magenta, and it's a more expressive version of staple neutrals like khaki and beige. In short, blush-colored workwear is the best of both worlds.
