HOT PINK IS…HOT
Pink admittedly is not my favorite color. At times it comes off as feeling a bit too young for my sensibility. But hot pink? Give it to me baby! Adding a pop of hot pink to an outfit adds a bit of fun to an otherwise predictable outfit. Hot pink screams “let’s go dancing!” or “Yeah I see you looking.” There’s something fun and confident about this shade of pink and I want to break down why this outfit works for women at any age.
THE RIGHT MATERIALS
I purchased this top from Mango and it’s one of my favorite pieces I purchased this season. Yes, it’s pink, but it has a beautiful satin look and feel that matures the top. The fabric is also thick, double-lined on top, and durable, so you don’t have to worry about exposing your chest too much. It’s a spaghetti cross strap, so as it gets cooler, it’s best to wear a blazer or jacket that could keep you warm.
These pants aren’t actually leather. I purchased them from Missguided and they have this cool quilted look to them that makes them stand out from any typical pair of leather trousers. They’re also not skin-tight. This adds a level of sophistication to the outfit just as much as the long-line blazer does. Speaking of this blazer. It’s from Zara and I love that it doesn’t have a traditional lapel. That small detail turns the style factor up and gives my outfit a more youthful feel. The blazer gives me “drinks with friends after work” instead of “board meeting”.
SHOP THIS LOOK
I accessorized this look with a bold statement pearl necklace, compact jeweled handbag, black hat, and black mesh heels. The standout piece is the pearl necklace. I bought it for my wedding, actually. As you can see, it pairs very nicely with less formal attire as well. I bought it from a department store like Macy’s or something – I can’t quite remember which one. The point is, if your chest has a lot of exposure, put on a big and bold statement necklace to fill the space and draw the eye in. I purchased the handbag from a Zara in Italy and immediately fell in love. It has a knitted material in striped black and cream and on the front is a beaded flower pattern. I chose this one because the bag detail helps balance out the boldness of the necklace. Lastly black mesh and suede heels and a black hat.
