5. Don’t go overboard. When wearing a colour like pink, try to remember that less is more. If you wear a pink top, don’t wear pink trousers, shorts, skirts, etc. in the same tone. If you do want to make your whole outfit pink, opt for tonal dressing, pairing a pastel pink top with a bolder pink skirt or trousers. Top the whole lot off with magenta shoes or a handbag. Choosing different shades of pink will make your outfit more interesting.
6. Pink accessories can also be used to great effect to liven up a more neutral outfit: pink shoes, scarves or bags. If you do want to wear more than one piece of pink, try varying the shade of each piece to give your look some character.
7. If you get the tone right, pink shoes can add a fun touch to most outfits. High heels for a big night out might work well. Try flats for a more laidback day time look.
8. Carry a pink handbag. If you’re wearing an otherwise neutral outfit, carrying a pink bag with you can add a bit of flair. Here again the shade and tone of pink can make all the difference. For example, if you are going for an elegant look, opt for a more neutral or pale shade of pink. If you want to go for an edgier look, find a bag that is in a bold, bright pink.
9. You can also try pink hair accessories. Try a pink headband, clip, or even a bow if you like them.
10. Pink doesn’t have to look sweet and demure. If you want a really edgy look, try layering a black leather jacket on top of a hot pink dress.
11. And for that finishing touch, try using pink make-up, either on eyes or, as a safer bet, on lips, cheeks or nails.
