It’s no surprise that the Pantone Color of the Year is prolific in current fashion. This color started its wave in fall of 2015 and is now fully saturated in the markets. Retailers from high end to fast fashion are embracing this subtle hue of pink. At FashionKit, “Pink Pearl” is center front in our S/S 16 color palette.
It’s the new neutral. Believe it or not, this tone of pink goes with practically everything. It can add extra dimension to an all black outfit or be the quiet element that ties together a bold look. It’s also the gateway into color. Those who have a more monochromatic wardrobe can use pale pink to safely venture into the world of color. Why not find a little space in your life for pale pink? If an all pink look is not your thing, try incorporating it with your accessories. Cell phone cases, bags, and nail color are all ideal if you want to embrace the trend but not sure if you’ll like it come next fall.
Obsessed with Pink! If you’re truly feeling this trend, then paint your life in pale pink. A trench coat in this feminine shade is a great piece that goes with nearly everything and provides a great change from a black or cream coat. Feeling extra adventurous? Try embracing the pastel hair trend and go for pale pink hair. Be sure to have a professional get you to this precious hue but once you’re there, flaunt your locks with every hair flip.
So, whether your obsessed or still tentative, next time you’re out and about, don't shy away from adding a touch or a ton of pale pink to your personal style!
