“Continuing the tranquil mood, Pale Dogwood is a quiet and peaceful pink shade that engenders an aura of innocence and purity. The unobtrusive Pale Dogwood is a subtle pink whose soft touch infuses a healthy glow.”
Like the blossoms it’s associated with, this soft pale shade finds itself to be very fitting for the spring season. The provided description for Pale Dogwood as mentioned in the Pantone Color Report as one of the chosen 2017 Spring Colors provides a legacy that allows the color to be a perfect signifier of all of the concepts spring encompasses. Similar to how the blossoming on the trees is the physical sign of new growth and rebirth in nature, this transformative effect allows the same principles to be applied to the wardrobe as Pale Dogwood becomes a refreshing color amongst the harsh, dark shades that tend to dominate winter closets.
Of course, the delicate nature of the color lends to it having a hyper-feminine quality, making for an addition that makes any outfit feel dainty. With my matching pants and top set, I paired the pink with a denim shirt as a quick surefire way to tone down the delicate look of the pink, making it more suitable for casual wear.
