Soft feminine looks in Light Pink chiffon are often seen in Spring collections. In contrast, angular cut blazers and coats in Light Pink boucle fabric stand away from the body and create a more boxy and masculine feel in the garment.
How the color is made: Adding Very Light Red to White creates a delicious Light Pink hue that looks light delectably smooth strawberry gelato.
History: Light Pink was typically used to depict sensuality and fantasy. Picasso’s “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” in 1907 was originally titled “The Brothel of Avignon” and hints at the theme of lust.
Color in Action
Light Pink doesn’t get the attention it deserves when it comes to red carpet events but when a star steps out in this exquisite color all eyes are n them. Kacey Musgraves wore a delicate confectionary delight by Giambattista Valli that looked like couture cupcake frosting in frilly Light Pink and wowed all the photographers.
The charm of Light Pink is its ability to mellow the other colors in the space and make it feel more cohesive. Light Pink scatter cushions can add an element of softness to a room where the other decor pieces are more angular and robust, giving the space a relaxed feel.
Colors that go with Light Pink

Backgrounds and Seamless Patterns
Animal print patterns in Light Pink and White feel tamer than other colors because of the playful and lighthearted vibe. Wallpapers with thin Light Pink, Cream, and Very Light Orange can make a room feel more open and inviting.
