In the PINK!

16 Oct

In honor of “On Wednesday’s we wear Pink” (a quote from the movie, Mean Girls)…and to bring awareness that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

How to Wear Pink

It’s no secret that Pink is my favorite color.  And I find Reese Witherspoon’s character in Legally Blonde, appropriately attired, while all decked out in Pink! 🙂  Pink will never go out of style. This season’s runways are renewing pink once again, with bright hues that really pack a punch. Whether pink is your favorite color, you like to wear pink occasionally, or you’re not that fond of pink – here are some ideas to inspire you, or even change your mind, about wearing pink.

Pink has a feminine, soft look. Styles of clothing that are flirty and feminine look great in pink! A floaty skirt, strappy sandals or an oversized bag in pink are flirty and fun. Counterbalance the softness of pink with a strong bold contrast. A black top or pants looks great with other pink clothing or accessories.

Go for unusual shades of pink for an element of surprise in your outfit. It’s a trend this season to wear deep, earthy shades of pink. If you plan to wear an unusual shade, choose a simple garment, such as a boxy sweater or A-lined skirt. Often the color is enough to make an impact so you don’t need added frills.

Choose a pink color which compliments your complexion. Dark skin looks ravishing in strong, bold shades of pink. Pastel shades accentuate a pale complexion. However, pink is one of those colors which is terrifically versatile – chances are you will be able to find a shade of pink which suits you.

Hair styles can complement a pink outfit. Wearing hair long and loose suits a feminine pale pink dress. In contrast, the bold style of a pink sheath dress looks great with hair pinned back in a bun.

Accessories can give more impact to a pink outfit. A pink dress, skirt or top looks great with contrasting shoes. I tend to stay away from bright white shoes with a pink outfit because it can look too light. However, cream or beige shoes with a soft pink skirt look feminine and elegant. Another idea is to accessorize bold pink colors with slightly contrasting accessories. For instance, orange strappy sandals with a bold pink sarong style skirt have exotic flair.

There are lots of ways to wear pink! Pink is a color that is about fun – so don’t be afraid to experiment.

How to wear Pink
Tips from O creative director Adam Glassman

**If you have pink undertones in your skin, choose dusty rose shades; hot pinks and fuchsias flatter olive and darker-skinned women.

**Pinks look extra chic when paired with somber fall colors like camel, gray and navy—the darker  shades keep rosy pieces from looking too Barbie.

**If you’re afraid of pink—this means you, avowed black wearers!—try a super-pale version – “It’s more like white with a light pink wash,”

**Determine the shade of pink that suits you the best. If you have olive skin and dark or brown hair, hot pink will look best on you. If you have a fair complexion and fair hair, pale and pastel pinks will suit you. If you are neither fair nor dark, most shades of pink will work for you.

**Choose an item of pink clothing you would like to wear. If you have olive skin and dark hair, wearing pink away from your face is best. If you are fair, wearing an item of pink clothing that is close to your face—for example, a pink top—helps bring out your complexion.

**Pick out a contrasting piece of clothing to wear with it. For instance, if you have chosen a pink top, pair it with some black pants.

**Here is a list of colors that contrast with pink:
Black
Brown
White
Silver
Orange

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast cancer awareness is an effort to raise awareness and reduce the stigma of breast cancer through education on symptoms and treatment. Supporters hope that greater knowledge will lead to earlier detection of breast cancer, which is associated with higher long-term survival rates, and that money raised for breast cancer will produce a reliable, permanent cure.
Breast cancer advocacy and awareness efforts are a type of health advocacy. Breast cancer advocates raise funds and lobby for better care, more knowledge, and more patient empowerment. They may conduct educational campaigns or provide free or low-cost services. Breast cancer culture, sometimes called pink ribbon culture, is the cultural outgrowth of breast cancer advocacy, the social movement that supports it, and the larger women’s health movement.
The pink ribbon is the most prominent symbol of breast cancer awareness, and in many countries the month of October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Some national breast cancer organizations receive substantial financial support from corporate sponsorship’s.
