From crisp Winter whites to vibrant red and green to opulent silver and gold, the holiday season comes with a color scheme we're all familiar with. But while we love to show these off in our home decor, wardrobes, and beauty looks, they can start to feel a bit monotonous year after year. (Red lips, for example? Been there, done that!) The end of 2018 seems like the perfect time to shake things up.
This holiday season, we're challenging you to broaden your horizons by adding two new (and unlikely) shades to the mix: rose gold and pink. They're fresh, feminine, and always chic, and you'll be surprised just how seamlessly they can fit into your life while still feeling appropriately fancy and festive during the holidays. Read on to learn how.
Rose gold and pearls are practically a match made in heaven, and a set of embellished bobby pins are proof. To put a modern spin on the pearls you'd normally wear around your neck or dangling from your ears, how about using them in your hair instead? Hair accessories have made a major comeback this year, and these bobby pins will make a gorgeous, subtle statement in any holiday party ensemble. For a sleek yet feminine look, keep the rose gold base exposed and use them to pin back pieces at the front of your face. And for a romantic vibe, slide them into an updo.
Beyond hair accessories, multipurpose beauty products are all the rage this year, and Coach's rose gold and pink Floral Eau de Parfum fits the bill flawlessly. In addition to dousing your aura with an irresistible scent — the ultimate finishing touch to any outfit — the bottle doubles as a piece of decor to proudly display on your vanity. The pale pink fragrance is housed in a gorgeous rose-gold-capped bottle that screams feminine and fashionable. With a unique scent that marries notes like pineapple sorbet, jasmine sambac, and gardenia, it'll give any festive outfit a touch of freshness that'll get you noticed all night.
Family and friends are the heart of the holiday season, and nothing feels better than gathering around a table to enjoy a festive fete. If you happen to be playing hostess this year, consider decking said table with rose gold and pink accents. Mix and match flatware, serving trays, and napkins in those trendy hues. (Bonus points for pink drinks and desserts!) A white tablecloth will keep things looking light and bright, while touches of green and mixed metals will ensure the holiday vibe still shines through. And in the rest of your home, use candles, ornaments, or even florals to showcase pretty pink shades.
An upgraded wardrobe is exactly what you need to complete your holiday glam trifecta. When it comes to jewelry, statement earrings are a foolproof choice. Instead of going for the obvious shiny or sparkly option, consider sporting a pair that features marble detailing with a splash of subtle color. These pink and white earrings are a perfect example — feminine, minimalistic, and totally stylish.
Finally, with temps (unfortunately) continuing to drop, we can't forget about outerwear. In a sea of dark-colored jackets, dare to stand out with a pink coat. Taking nods from faux-fur styles and more structured pieces, a fur-collared peacoat has all the makings of a great statement coat. The length will ensure you're prepared to fight the Winter weather, while the fuzzy detailing will keep your neck warm — even if you forget a scarf. Plus, you'd be surprised at just how well this color pairs with other tones.
