The new hot color has been picked out, people! It seems that fashion designers all over the world have come to a consensus – black is out, pink is in! Don’t make the mistake of thinking that pink is a bland, girly color. What fashion designers are working with right now are powerful shades of pink that one cannot help but say “WOW” to.
Thakoon Panichgul says: “I love fuchsia. I’m always drawn to it. It’s a reaction color, and that’s what fashion is. You can’t quantify it, it’s just you know what you like. You can’t analyze it.”
True enough. If you go out wearing a hot fuchsia dress, you will probably get the stares of everyone within a mile. Another reason to go pink is the fact that these shades go well with many other colors. Hope Greenberg, the fashion director of Lucky has this to say: “From neon to fuchsia, hot pink is very versatile. It goes with gray, brown, navy, army green. There are a million things to wear it with.”
Indeed, if you are worried that you would have to get a whole new wardrobe to match the season’s “pinkness,” no need for that. Your old grays, browns, and other shades could very well match your new pinks.
Of course, you should not simply jump into the water and get everything in pink. The smart thing to do would be to test the color out with small items. Say, get a blouse or a belt in a flashy pink shade. Try it out first and see how it suits you. If it works – which it probably will – then go all out get ready to be the center of attention!
