Pretty In Pink: 27 Great Blush Tones We Love

There really is no colour prettier. Summer may be on the way out, but we’ll be in the pink all year round.

There is no colour quite as divisive as pink. While some find it the prettiest in the spectrum, others are put off by its perceived cutesiness. But we say pink is more than just the pale ‘baby’ expression of it; it can be earthy, it can be arresting and it can be nostalgic, too. Neither is there any colour with more gendered connotations. We say it’s high time to put aside pink prejudice and embrace it in all its loveliness. Do, then, pour a glass of pale rosé and peruse our edit for inspiration.
