Fashion Friday: Hot Pink

One of the biggest trends I’ve noticed lately in fashion is hot pink. When I saw Bar Rafaeli in the hot pink one shouldered number below I thought it was stunning (but hate the shoes- the purple is too Barbie with this bold color). I have always associated hot pink with the 80’s and the days when I would puffy paint everything within my grasp with hot pink hearts…. but it’s looks so chic on all these fabulous women I think my next purchase may have to be something bold and pink!

Hot pink for a formal occasion:

Looks great paired with black (and easier to try wearing it in small doses if you are timid…)

Casual hot pink:

Runway hot pink:

The fashion world has even deemed hot pink hot for men- re-branding the color “man-genta“, according to the frigginWall Street Journal! In my book, man-genta is NOT ok. I like a tan guy in a light pink shirt in the summer, heck yeah, but not HOT pink…

Give it a try for under $20 with this hot pink dress from Forever 21, go preppy in a J.Crew cardigan or dare to bare in this Urban Outfitters one shoulder dress:

Look drape-y and gorgeous in this Issa wrap top or maybe just a pop with a Lauren Merkin clutch?

How about adding a dose of hot pink to your house? I am loving this desk chair from Athena Says blog:

One of my favorite commercial spaces has to be Cambridge’s Upstairs on the Square with it’s Zebra Room (in hot pink and zebra!) and Soiree Room with pink and gold plaid painted walls! A preppy-luxe must see if you are in the area!


Happy Friday- I hope it’s a hot pink kind of day for you!
