Wear Blush Pink like Meghan Markle!

While it’s true that few of us will look as dashing as Meghan Markle looks in what is touted as her “signature color”, blush pink, we CAN wear this gorgeous hue and mix it with other shades to bring pops of color into our wardrobe.

The Duchess of Sussex has worn this beautiful hue to many events and she looks absolutely STUNNING. (Seriously though, she could enter a room wearing a paper bag and still look just as fab, am.i.right?!)

While we can’t all look like Meghan, sadly….sigh….we CAN incorporate her fashion sense and love of blush pink into our own Spring styles, without breaking the budget! By using the blush pink moto skinny denim from Too Qute Boutique as your base layer, you can bring this cheery color into your life for just $49 and mix and match it with loads of colors, creating unique outfits. You’ll find yourself gravitating to this color so much that it may just become YOUR signature color, too!


The Duchess tends to stick with basic, neutral and classic shades to mix with blush, so if that’s your jam, check out these timeless combos from Too Qute Boutique:

Black and white gingham is a classic color combo to pair with blush.
Check out the gingham details on the sleeve roll-ups!!
Love a bit more frill with neutral shades?
Don’t miss this gray, black and blush floral combo!

This gorgeous gingham top can be found here and for just $35, is an inexpensive way to add visual interest with blush denim (or white, black, or other colored jeans)! The floral top can be found here and can be worn year round, easily layered with a cardi or classic denim or trench coat in cooler temps! Love the color combo and flutter sleeve styling on this qutie as it is a very flattering style!

The Duchess of Sussex wears denim with ease and totally *owns* her outfits. Piecing together a look like this is absolutely doable with the right fit of clothes. Make sure you buy your size, don’t buy bigger than what you are, even if you are trying to hide flaws. The technique of buying bigger sizes always backfires because it makes you look larger than you are. When women come into the boutique to try on clothes, I have been told on more than one occasion “I can’t wear skinny jeans”….but I am here to tell you that YOU CAN and YOU SHOULD! No matter your size, stretchy, skinny jeans are flattering when paired with a top/jacket/etc. that flatters the fit. If you’re wearing skinny jeans on the bottom, wear a top with a bit of flare or length. Not super baggy. But most definitely NOT form fitted. Save your form fitted tops for when you wear a wider-leg bottom or flowing skirt. The proportion makes ALL the difference! As you can see below, the Duchess pairs distressed skinnies with a slightly loose top, tucked in on one side to create a put-together and flattering look.

If you are confused about what to pair with blush skinny jeans, look at these trendy and unique items from Too Qute Boutique.Each has the right proportion to pair with a close-fitting pant. The tops are the perfect shapes to mix with skinnies! Love brighter shades? Check out the aqua on the left with the grommets around the neckline and loose sleeves. Looking for a more preppy look? Look at the navy and white striped middle top with tie sleeve and small pink floral detail. If neutrals make your heart flutter, don’t miss the option on the right – an Umgee grayed taupe knit top with TIERS on the back (you have to see how adorable it is, here).

When you see a color you love on a celebrity like the Duchess of Sussex, remember you can always replicate the looks yourself! (Maybe not at her price point…but that’s a topic for another day!) Find pictures of outfits you love, then piece together similar looks in a price point that works for you. If this is tricky for you, we are here to help! Contact us here and we’ll work with you to put together outfits you’ll feel amazing wearing!

Happy shopping, quties!
