How do you blush? Not exactly tan, nor pink nor beige, blush is an allusive hue whose name conjures images up the flush of a first crush or a first kiss. We were working on a post about the seasons’ sultry shade, and ran into Nina Griscom who was rocking the cool girl meets demure look. She paired the softest silk top with a scrumptious pashmina in the same spun sugar shade and then edged it up with a black leather moto and black pants. We decided to do a study of how to wear blush and came up with these three looks to play up the color. With its soft, sexy appeal, we feel it pairs best with neutrals, letting the subtle shade shine through.
