The color PINK- a trend shade that even the most ardent pink hater (like me) will love

Full disclosure: Pale pinks excessively worn on a grown-up woman makes my skin crawl.

There, I’ve said it.

There has always been something about a woman of a certain age (post student years in this case) drowning in otherwise wimpy goo-goo-gaga colors that just sucks the va-va-voom out of her style and her presence.

But take that same hue and amp up the volume and you have got one VERY hot color palette that is worthy of a second look.

Fuchsia, poppy, American beauty, neon, hot pink, Tiger Lilly… these are NOT baby pinks or great-aunt Tilly’s rose hue.

It’s the power shade of pink that looks so vibrant now, like this Elizabeth and James Spring Jim Blazer and Pants in Tiger Lilly (at Shopbop).

Beauty Bonus: Its the vivid pinks that light up the room and your complexion.

Don’t forget the makeup corollary, although these brilliant pops of color look fantastic AGAINST your skin, they can add years ON your skin.

When it comes to cosmetics, after a certain age avoid heavy, high pigment bright shades of lipstick and get the same color value in a much more flattering manner by way of sheer pinkish lip glosses and washes of blush. You’ll love it!

 

In the pinks…
