We see the need to dwell, just for a moment, on the color pink. We love it! Just a short step away from the '22 True Fashionista Pantone Color of the Year Very Peri, pink is our deal. Let's start with our logo, 'nuff said. Conveniently, a trove of today's hottest designers feel as we do, and the choice of ways in which to drape oneself in all things pink is satisfyingly huge at True Fashionistas, Naples' best consignment store.
The good peeps at Shutterstock confirm the news via their Color Trends Report. Pink is on their True Fashionista shortlist of trending colors as well. Subtle Pacific Pink, to be precise. Reminiscent of that blush color that hits your cheeks or that subtle pink that happens during sunset, shades of pink complement several other colors as well.
Spring runways were screaming pink, from the likes of Versace's beautiful pantsuit to Valentino's cutout minis. Vogue UK shares that Naomi Campbell wore a hot-pink suit at Versace; Emilia Wickstead explored pink and green combinations. Dior showed various hot-pink takes while David Koma presented a party-ready sequined outfit. Hot-pink flashes happened at Rokh and Richard Quinn; Alexander McQueen's show starred a bright pink double-breasted suit and corseted dress.
We found a few pink ideas as well, so why don't you pop on an essentials mix of (Who else?) Pink tunes from your fave music streaming service and dig right in!
THINK PINK – APPAREL
You don't have to be in a wedding to rock a pink gown or even a maxi dress! Gowns in bridesmaid pink don't go out of style, but what is here in pink for '22 dresses will light up the room. Should you be attending a prom, homecoming, or another formal event, Amarra has you covered with their collection of attention-grabbing evening gowns in several shades of pink.
Should your dress selection veer toward the mini, designers like Herve Leger won't disappoint. Leger's new sheer variegated rib mini cocktail update of their signature bandage dress shows off its style subtly beneath an overlay of sheer fabric. Need a little flare? Leger's Fit and Flare dress in bright pink featuring simple lines will do the trick.
Oscar de la Renta's got your back when it comes to pink designer fashion with their pleated bow-shoulder shift dress. Dressy yet slightly casual, you'll be hitting the cocktail party or the street with confidence in this number.
In other pink clothing news, a worthy contender is the double Duchesse jean jacket by Austin's finest export, Tom Ford. Complete with the dual button pockets and classic denim jacket look, its beautiful bright fuchsia hue will ensure you're seen for miles, trust us.
THINK PINK – HANDBAGS
Think what you will about the Sex and the City reboot And Just Like That; ya gotta love Carrie Bradshaw's endearing so-cool style. Specifically for this moment, we're talking Episode nine, "No Strings Attached," which featured a gorgeous pink sequined Fendi Baguette. With Monolo Blahnik, SJP's character singlehandedly turned this True Fashionista Fendi line into a cultural icon. The strikingly pink purse is a custom, limited-edition Baguette explicitly designed for the reboot.
Not to be outdone, Christian Louboutin has also got a fabo pink leather tote for 2022, the Cabata Mini. Perforated with CL logo and embellished with silver-tone spikes, this particular shade of pink has been christened Fiesta-Citronelle. Just so you know, it's as True Fashionista pink as it gets.
Need a handbag in slightly softer pink? Salvatore Ferragamo delivers for '22 with the classically minimal Trifolio pink shoulder bag. Find a beautiful assortment of authentic Salvatore Ferragamo handbags and more on consignment at True Fashionistas.
THINK PINK – FOOTWEAR
Pink shoes? We say YES. Wait for it…not a second Carrie Bradshaw mention in one blog post? Yup, especially when the show squeezes in Jimmy Choo Bing 100 hot pink plexi stiletto mules complete with a pink crystal strap.
This spring, Gucci hops onboard the True Fashionista pink wagon with their rubber slide jelly sandals. Casual yet chic, Gucci is going for a playful twist on an essential style in a delicate shade of pink., it's got a totally 90s True Fashionista chunky heel and embossed logo for retro appeal.
THINK PINK – HOME DESIGN
