Can I pull off a pink suit??
Princess Diana wore her a fair share of pink suits which she pulled off so gracefully. Pink suits are attached to formal occasions, like weddings, cocktails and the church. I will like to see it worn more often to these occassions than it currently is. It is extremely elegant! It is always a breath of fresh air to see a woman in a nicely tailored pink suit. However, I will asdvise dress and skirt suits rather than trousers. The lenght of the dress and skirt shouldn’t be beyond the knee. A little bit of skin makes it all the more appealing, too much closure turns it to a disaster!
What About pink lipstick??
We see a lot more pink lipstick worn these days and I absolutely love it! It is fierce and adventurous, and speaks volume of your persona. However serious attitude is desired to pull it off as it is the driving force behind the look! Arieta Mujay always seems to do it justice as well as Rihanna!
Can I wear pink jeans??
Coloured jeans became the talk last summer, and still remained slightly in focus all year round till now. Pink coloured jeans? Well… this trend is highly selective. Preferable suited for the model skinny and people with slim tighs and long legs. If you happen to fall under that category, I advise you try it out! Its fun, and perfect for a casual day!
Victoria Beckham works this trend tastefully. You are permitted to steal her style and go for the wide leg or create your own with a skinny leg, the choice is yours!
