Also, use pastel pink as the focus colour of the outfit and combine it with neutral colours like black, white, grey or with other pastel colours. Don’t try to colour-block with bright colours. It will ruin the classy effect.
And lastly, keep in mind that pastel pink is a light and cool colour. If you have warm and dark colourings in your hair, skin and eyes, then I’m sorry to inform you that pastel pink is not a good colour for you and you should stay away from it completely. (But don’t be sad, there are other iconic items that are just made for you, like the iconic MaxMara camel coat.)
With my little tribute to Jackie O, I hope to show that fashion runs indeed in cycles and essentially, nothing is ever truly new. But why reinvent the wheel when we can enjoy a classy look over years?
As fashion lovers, it is just so easy to be carried away by the newest trends and designs. For my part, I got super excited when I saw that pastel pink coats will be one of the hottest trend this fall/winter season…. because I already own one that I absolutely adore!
“Ha, I am SO ahead of the game!” I thought.
But am I really?
Actually, I didn’t buy that pastel pink coat, because I’m a trend guru and foresaw a few years back that this piece will become super trendy in 2013. No, the truth is simply:
I bought it, because it is an iconic piece to me. I bought it because of Jackie O.
Yes, that’s right. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was my fashion inspiration for this piece of garment. I wanted to copy the iconic look of her original pink Chanel outfit. An outfit that does not only have its own Wikipedia page, but also it’s own BuzzFeed page. Just as icons do, I guess.
I encourage you to read through those pages after you have read this blog article, because it will tell you that she wore that pink look on Nov 22nd 1963 – the day when her husband John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas – and how it became a lasting image of American history.
Looking at the calendar, the sad incident happened pretty much exactly 50 years ago! What a great opportunity to show my tribute to Jackie Kennedy Onassis by showing you a set of pictures from my recent shooting with Carolina Caruso Photography!
