Trend Spotting: Pretty In Pink

From the very minute many of us girls were born into this world, we have worn the color pink--most of the time, by force as a child. Some love it, some hate it. We're not exactly sure who designated pink to be the iconic symbol for women, but one thing is for sure: plenty of fashionistas can't get enough of it! Whether the feminine hue is a friend or foe of yours, it is definitely popping up everywhere and has no intentions of fading away. From baby doll blush to highlighter neon and everything in between--like our Crayola faves, "Ultra Pink" and "Razzle Dazzle Rose"--pink is an ever-popular pick for the upcoming season. Here are some styling tips along with a few of our pretty in pink faves that you can try!
We absolutely adore this look! The bright pink skinnies are all kinds of awesome, and pairing them with a denim button-down shirt is the perfect way to make this look casual yet trendy and fun. Complete with leather ankle booties, an oversized clutch, aviator shades, and a wrist stacked with colorful bracelets, this ensemble is ideal for just about anywhere, any day.
This look is a great "day-to-night" outfit. The semi-sheer white blouse--loosely cuffed sleeves included--neatly tucked into a coral pink mini is simply stylish. The large shoulder bag and low-heeled ankle boots make this outfit perfect for your daytime runs around the city. And by night, adding a sleek blazer and trading the accessories for a sequined clutch, rhinestone bangles, and platform ankle booties is the way to go to achieve an effortless party look.
Whether you're heading out for a lunch date or to a laid-back shindig with friends, this outfit can be worn for almost any occasion. We especially love the fluorescent pink blouse worn over the sherbet orange maxi skirt. What a great combination! And to make this look even more eye-popping, the neon green chained earrings are amazing, which shows us that colorblocking doesn't have to stop with your accessories. Neutral strappy heels and tons of skinny bangles give this look just the right finish. 
For more of a classic party outfit, this look is it. Debonair yet feminine. The lacy white button-down blouse is adorable with the black bowtie. And the leather shorts add a hint of edginess to this classic get-up. Bringing it all together, the bright fuchsia blazer makes this look ultra-feminine. The matching Mary Jane platform pumps and sequined handbag top it all off perfectly.

Which of these looks do you want to test out?
