The way Valentino put it: “Pink is Punk”, saying that it doesn’t have to be a sweet color. Personally, I believe that pink could be anything you want it to be, from girly and pretty, edgy and modern, to classic and sophisticated. It’s just one of those universally flattering chameleon of colors that can be styled to match whatever mood you happen to be in today.
At the moment, it is the edgier side of pink that happens to appeal to me the most, and the way I like to achieve this look is by combining it with slightly more fashion-forward, statement making pieces as opposed to something very soft and feminine. Take today’s look for example, I love the way glossy leather pants add a modern touch to this otherwise rather feminine Tibi pink number. Accessories play an equally important part. Small bags are all the rage at the moment, and I am more than a bit partial to the way this studded Alexander Wang bucket bag helps to dress this outfit down. Last but not least is footwear. A pair of strappy sandals, or perhaps sky-high stilettos would have certainly worked, but the mules once again add a slightly more modern twist on the look, and help to take it away from the girly and pretty territory! Love that!
What about you guys, how do you like to wear pink?
