I've been obsessed with buying pink this season and thought this article would be of interest to others like myself.....

what to wear with pink

By Cynthia Nellis

<TABLE id=gh cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0><TBODY><TR><TD></TD><TD></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>Pink looks great on almost everyone, but head-to-toe cotton candy hues can overwhelm even the girliest girl.

Do's

[*]Do pair pink with a neutral shade that grounds it without overwhelming it: white, cream, chocolate, khaki and denim.

[*]Do wear mid-range pinks like cotton candy with white.

[*]Do mix soft blush pinks with cream or khaki.

[*]Do go bold with combos like hot pink and grass green for preppy freshness.

Don'ts

[*]Don't pair icy pastels together like pink and baby blue. Too cutesy.

[*]Don't wear hot pink with black: it looks dated. Use white or even khaki as a fresher foil for your pink.<SCRIPT>zSB(3,3);if(!z336){var zIsb=document.getElementById("adsb");if(zIsb){zIsb .style.display="inline";zIsb.style.height="0px";zI sb.style.width="0px";}var zIss=document.getElementById("adss");if(zIss){zIss .style.display="inline";zIss.style.height="0px";zI ss.style.width="0px";}}</SCRIPT>

I love pink! One of my favorite casual outfits is a shell-pink baby doll t-shirt paired with lime green cargo pants from Lucky. Well, maybe it works because I live in Florida...lol!

I'm also a fan of pink with chocolate brown or tan. Like a strawberry creme chocolate.

I saw the link. Cute shirt. Brown is a beautiful and rich color ... and .... sooooo UNERrated! It is the softer and more flattering version of black. It is darkness mixed with a touch cream delight! I've loved it for a long time. (My maiden name was Brown so I am biased LOL.) I just bought a linen skirt from LaRedoute in that chocolate brown color and it is a color that can't go wrong.
