Rose gold is magic. It flatters every skin tone, looks both natural and pastel, and pairs will with lots of other colors, making it an ideal highlight/lowlight. While rose gold used to refer to a specific level and tone it’s definition has widened to include everything from pale rose-peach to dark copper-pink. It’s not really a trend anymore. It’s become a classic! Trends are passing styles, things that change each season, but rose gold has serious staying power.

As ready as I am for sweater weather, I know that all too soon I’ll be missing the bright and sunny days of summer and the low-key, playful fashion that accompanies them. Before it’s over, I plan to eat as many tomatoes as I can, to go through one last rotation of my favorite summer dresses, and to wear all my favorite summer hair trends.

Stores used to dye pistachios pink to hide imperfections in the shells, a practice that stopped when the US began growing our own pistachios instead of importing them produced prettier nuts. This is probably better for our health, I do miss the delight of eating something that tasted savory but looked like candy. The shells of pink pistachios were vibrant magenta, but the nuts themselves were a softer, rosier hue, which is captured perfectly in the formula below. –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →

This formula is a happy medium between two of my favorite color trends: rose gold and gray violet. Rose gold is slightly warm, and adding it to an ultra-cool shade softens and brightens. This color is unusual in an understated way. The subtle pink tone makes skin glow while the balanced beige that makes up the hies primary tone provides a classy neutral backdrop.
