FALL 2013: A Pink Season

LOVEPINK

It was about time! Mint had its season, Tangerine and Emerald most certainly did and I had been waiting too long for my beloved pink to finally have its moment! Sure, we saw pastel pink two seasons ago. We also had hot pink on Spring 2011 but this Fall, any shade of pink is on trend and pink is the strongest color (I’m doing a victory dance as we speak) for A/W 2013. Some may say that pink is better with warm weather, if you think like them, you haven’t seen the candy coats that some designers sent down the runway last February! Pink for Fall and Winter (I’ve written “PINK” like a million times in one paragraph, but that word is just music to my ears) is pure bliss and since any shade is part of the trend list, you can pick as many rosy garments as you like! Not into pastels? There’s always magenta, raspberry and barbie pink. Not into brights? Vintage rose, perhaps? Remember, we take what we like from the trends and make them our own! That’s why fashion is the most beautiful industry in the whole wide world!

For today, I prepared a little “Shades of Pink” shopping guide (don’t you dare think I took the title from the infamous books). No, that’s not the name Pantone gave this colors and yes, I gave them the color that first spoke to me when I put the collages together. Ready for this blushing season? I can’t wait to paint my closet (and my room, and my nails, I would even have a pink car if I could) pink! Let’s start!
