Bright Pink Ushers in Cheery Vibes and the Ultimate Sophistication for Spring
Seasonal transitions can often feel like slow burns; the days gradually lengthen as we excavate our sunny-hued bags and light-wash denim. But this year, spring 2021 is coming in hot — pink, that is. Mirroring our collective craving for exuberant, feel-good vibes, bright pink has emerged as a major trend for spring, making its presence known on everything from oversized streetwear to the daintiest kitten heels.
The vibrant hue has long screamed “look at me.” Just look back to Dua Lipa’s dramatic and voluminous fuchsia Swarovski crystal-flecked duchesse satin coat by Atelier Versace for the award-winning singer’s 2021 Grammys performance. She took that off to reveal a shimmering blazer dress in a lighter shade of pink, which she later removed to uncover the last outfit in her 3-in-1 Versace ensemble, a light pink crystal-covered bra top and brief that Barbie would have loved.
For the rest of us, this season’s styles prove that fiery pink and its sibling hues can work and be every bit as sophisticated and refined as it is bold.
Check out our most elegant pops of pink, and look forward to brighter days (and more festive evenings!) ahead.
These flowy suit pants from H&M combine three of spring’s most coveted trouser trends: a wide-leg silhouette, pleats, and the hottest of hot pinks. Add the brand’s matching jacket for a head-to-toe wow factor.
Saloni’s jacquard dress, available at Intermix, may be brazen both in color (bright) and length (mini), but the long puff-shoulder sleeves, feminine ruffle cuffs, and 100% silk fabrication are pure sophistication.
Both minimalist and eye-catching, Gianvito Rossi’s spin on the season’s mule trend pairs a demure kitten heel with a wide puffed-leather strap in a summer-ready hue.
Proving neon can be classic, Mulberry’s small Darley bag juxtaposes timeless evening-accessory elements — the brand’s iconic lock closure and a black chain strap — with a burst of neon pink piping.
Just a drop of pink’ll do ya with this sweet, petite floral pendant necklace from Kate Spade New York.
Max Mara’s cotton poplin midi-dress, featuring a full skirt, blouson sleeves, and delicate gathering at the waist and cuffs evokes summer at its breezy best. Popped collar optional!
