TRACES OF PINK x HALSTON HERITAGE

Halston Heritage is embracing the barely pink trend and we are simply loving it.  The subtle hue is so refreshing for either a day or night look.  With so many styling possibilities, light pink is our choice of color for those occasions when we want to stray away from black and white. Those of you who know us well, know we are the biggest advocates for simplicity, clean lines, solids and easy chic styling. In collaboration with Halston, we had the pleasure of providing a few tips for jazzing up their barely pink pieces in time for summer. So take a read and share your thoughts.  We'd love to hear from you.

 
Crepe Dress w/ Metal Plate
 
Cocktail dresses are timeless in fashion and will remain in style for years to come.  No matter your preference on length, color and texture, every cocktail dress deserves an elegant and sophisticated look, with a touch of personal style.  The barely pink Crepe Dress w/ Metal Plate is a classy approach to cocktail hour with the subtle hardware detailing adding a bit of richness.  Keep it simple with styling - accessories and shoes should look as dignified as the dress itself.  Consider a nude heel, hard gold clutch and thin necklace, while the dress remains the showstopper. 
 
 
Silk Georgette Top
 
The summer heat is on! With rising temperatures, the easy breezy and comfy camisole is this season's favorite feminine top.  For a casual chic day, the Silk Georgette Top pairs great with a white skinny jean or distressed blue jean and a cool statement necklace.  The ensemble should look effortless, so less is more.  Wearing your cami for date night?  Throw on a fitted trouser and some stilettos.  Opt for no jewelry with this look for a barely there effect your date is sure to love.
  
 
Silk Maxi w/ Overlay
 
Maxi dresses are a wardrobe must-have and look great all year long.  Partnered with high slits, you've mastered being sexy without overdoing it -- plus who doesn't love showing a little skin.  The barely pink Silk Maxi w/ Overlay is the perfect selection for those casually cute days that don't require the fuss of separates.  Style with a strappy flat, chunky bangles, shades and an oversized bag for a hobo-chic look great for shopping with the girls. 
  
 
Sequin Printed Cami
 
While sequins are fun and add a bit of dazzle to a look, pairing with complimentary colors can help add balance.  For trendy, less predictable styling, try wearing the Sequin Printed Cami with khaki.  These colors paired together makes any outfit more exciting and can be accomplished with little effort.  Wear a season-appropriate khaki trench and denim bottoms and see how the sequin really stands out under the jacket for a refreshing surprise. 
 
 
Asymmetric Peplum Crepe Dress
 
Sometimes it's fun to push the envelope and try something a bit more unexpected.  With pink being so feminine, it helps to counter the softness with a stronger hue.  Pairing the Asymmetric Peplum Crepe Dress with a motto jacket takes your look from "girl next door" to "girl with a flare" -- all with just one single layer.  Wear over your shoulders for a less structured feel that makes going from edgy chic to simple sweet when you are ready to ditch the jacket.
 
 
Draped Back Knit Top
 
Wearing a single shade is boring right? Of course not! In fact, rocking a head to toe monochromatic look is a simpler and cleaner approach to putting an outfit together.  Style the Draped Back Knit Top with pinks of the same hues and love how the look has one uninterrupted line from head to toe giving you a sexier and taller appearance.  Embracing the trend, rock a barely pink skirt, heels and handbag for a well put together day look. 
 
 
 Sequined Printed Dress
 
Sequins are a subtle way to add a little shimmer to an outfit for the extra glam.  The key to styling the barely pink Sequined Printed Dress is simplicity.  For a night out on the town, consider pairing the dainty number with black.  Playing with drastic contrasts after dark is a bold statement that helps your look stand out.  A simple black ankle strap heel and envelope clutch transform your from soft and innocent to daring and sultry.  Throw on a couple of thin gold bracelets and stud earrings -- you're all set
