Peachy keen

When it’s drab and dreary, adding a bright, vibrant shade to your outfit can help you escape a gray day. One of the most popular colors right now is peach. A recent trip to Carson’s and Nordstrom revealed that this hue is one of the hottest shades this summer. The color can be found in a variety of pink and orange undertones, making this shade wearable for just about anyone.


Dark, orange-hued sweaters, like this Free People look available at Carson’s, are a great way to stay warm while looking adorable. The crocheted look also remains very popular for spring, in addition to scarves, so this look covers many trends. Just be sure to wear a cute tank under your sweater, unlike this risque dressed mannequin.


A plain peach button-down top, like this one from Eileen Fisher, is very versatile. Layer it under a cardigan for extra warmth, or tuck it in with a pair of high-wasted dress pants and blazer for a great office look.


A peachy pattern may be just what you needed. This Splended striped sweater is cute and comfy; the stripes add detail and interest to the look.


Channel springtime with this peach plaid button-down. It incorporates two peach shades, and the laid-back style pairs great with jeans and leggings for now, while having the ability to transition into a summer top that can eventually be worn with shorts.


A pop of peach also looks good layered under a darker color, like this black striped cardigan. The look is slimming, but brighter than all black. Keeping a pretty, vibrant color next your your face is the best way to achieve a natural glow, especially in the wintertime.


Lighter peach hues are also pretty, and very feminine.


If you don’t want to look super bright, opt for a clothing item with more subtly, like this bohemian free people top. The peach detailing in the pattern makes the look bold, without being too colorful.


Peach and white geometric patterns work well, especially in a cardigan, or handbag.


If you want to really stand out in the crowd, wear a bright, pinky peach dress for a night out, with a pair of dark tights, dark boots and a nice dark handbag.


Or, keep the rest of your look neutral, and put the pop of color on your toes, with a peach ballet flat, like this pair from ACL. Search in stores like Charming Charlie and Francesca’s Closet for a cute dupe at a more reasonable price.


However you decide to wear peach, this gorgeous shade will brighten up your look, leaving you looking cute and happy even when the weather is drab.
