Powerhouse pink is without a doubt the shade of the season and of all the bright colors making the round- as expected with the return to the 80’s- this one is my absolute favorite. While this color is undoubtedly striking, it isn’t obnoxiously loud or too dominating.
Powerhouse pink is a happy median between the sweet innocence of pale pink and the overt sex-appeal of radiant red and has a vibrant energy which exudes confidence. We saw pops of pink all over the spring runways- Badgley Mischka, Matthew Williamson, Christian Dior, and more- all of our favorite designers turned up the volume on their collections by throwing this killer shade into the mix. Pair your pink pieces with neutrals for a more modern look, metallics for a dose of glam, with black for a bit of edge- you really can’t go wrong.
I am not only advocating this shade because it’s trendy, it is actually incredibly flattering for just about any complexion, whether you’re super pale or ultra tan, blond or brunette, this color was made to flatter and can’t help but make you feel sexy.
