Current color crush: dusty pink. Some call it blush, some call it nude. I view it as a grown-up version of baby pink. Without the saccharine cuteness, it’s sophisticated and sultry at the same time. It goes great with grey, faded blue, lavender, white, brown, teal and sea green.
In Chinese: 痴迷烟粉色，有人也叫这种颜色裸粉色，马卡龙色或裸肤色。和甜腻的嫩粉相比，它更多了份优雅，和明艳的亮粉相比，它又多了份沉静。可以和灰色、白色、棕色等中性色搭。和牛仔蓝、薰衣草紫、湖水绿等配起来也非常别致。

As you can see from the title, I’m obsessed with blush pink right now. It’s so sweet, fresh and feminine. There are so many different but equally intriguing shades you can choose from: the pale shade on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is sultry yet graceful; the dusty rose color spotted in Milan is nostalgic and demure; the peachy pink on Kate Middleton is buoyant and elegant.
When it comes to styling: black and navy toughen up the sweet blush pink, give it an urban chic vibe whereas soft, light neutrals add fresh and delicate touches to it.
As always, accessories make the outfit: A pair of snake-skin strap sandals elevates a sexy blush top; Lace-up booties and studded jewelry edge up a soft rosy sweater; Nude pumps and light brown clutch ground a cheerful peach dress.
