It's bold and it's, honestly, really exciting.
If you're anything like me then it's hard to forget a memorable outfit, especially if it was worn by someone who look particularly incredible. That's why, for a few days, I haven't been able to get the image of Tracee Ellis Ross wearing that bright pink Schiaparelli dress out of my head. Then I saw Zendaya wearing something of a similar color and suddenly, I am dragging out all the old pink garments out from the back of my closet.
Let's recap. Here is the Insta of Tracee to which I am referring:
She's cool, her hair is cool, her glasses and her boots are cool. I mean.... need we say more?
And let's just briefly talk about Zendaya's Ralph & Russo dress that she wore to the Spider-Man: Homecoming premiere. Because, honestly, it's perfect. Who What Wear posted an article on June 29th that her dress made us "forget about Millennial Pink" -- a trend that arose last summer and has been the focus of coffee shops, interior design and many, many collections.
Alas, Zendaya has rocked our world with her hot pink train, pointed stilettos and chandelier earrings.
Tis the season to rethink the pink, according to The Fashion Spot.
Freelance staff writer Cordelia Tai wrote, "Pink has been #rebranded. Once a symbol of dated gender binaries, pink is now the color of powerful optimistic statements — Trump-shading pussy hats, shapely, multiethnic Barbie dolls, a cosmetics company [Glossier] that values realism over illusion."
Refinery29 also took a stab at the hot pink trend in a *branded content* article sponsored by Woolite - take that as you will.
They're pushing bright, florescent colors (insert, a good detergent) and featured this Acne Studios pink denim lab jacket with matching pants.
Long story short: bright/hot pink is en vogue ATM and it's probably worth buying something to add to your wardrobe in case you ever take a trip to... I don't know, Candyland or Barbie World or something. Or New York, not sure.
