Pink was my color for a very, very long time; up until college I think, if I had the option of getting something in pink, I’d get it! Then, one day, I opened my closet and all I could find was pink (seriously, even my shoes and socks!), and decided it was time to boycott pink from my life. I did really well for myself the past 4-5 years, but now pink fever is back again, and it’s back with a vengeance! My wardrobe is craving for it, and every time I go shopping, vibrant fuchsias (carried over from here), refreshing corals, and honeysuckle have been getting my top-most attention.
These particular shades of bright pink can be paired with your obvious blacks, whites, blues, browns (especially love how it looks with camel!), and grays for a conservative look. However, I’m also really looking forward to, and highly recommend, pairing them up with reds/maroons (as seen here), turquoise, cerulean, and violets as well as lemony yellows and olives for a more dramatic, playful approach. If you’re not into color blocking entire outfits, try creating a subtle contrast with shoes and other accessories or with a lip color or nail paint.
It’s the perfect summery color, and brightens up/compliments a variety of skin tones. And something tells me, by the end of summer, I’m going to have it in plenty. Welcome back, pink wardrobe! 😉
