Most of us see the fall and winter as a time when the days get shorter and the weather cools down. What is heating up this fall/winter 2018 is neon colors on the catwalk and in the stores. One shade that is particularly pleasing and popular is hot pink. All colors of pink clothing make a confident, bold fashion statement, but the hotter the pink, the hotter the look.
All pink garments are glorious, I think!
Pink is a pale red color named after the flower of the same name. The color pink is made by mixing red and white. For darker pinks, go more red. For paler pinks, add more white. Pink was first used as a color name in the late 17th century. According to surveys in Europe and the United States, pink is the color most often associated with charm, politeness, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, childhood, femininity and romance.
Pink Color Fun Fact: The color pink is associated with chastity and innocence when combined with white, but associated with sultry seduction when combined with purple or black.
When dressed in hot pink you can cause a fashion heart attack.
Pink Fun Fact: Pink wasn’t a common color in the fashion of the Middle Ages; nobles preferred brighter reds, such as crimson. However, pink appeared in women’s fashion, and in religious art, in the 13th and 14th century. During the Renaissance, pink was mainly used for the flesh color of faces and hands.
In color psychology, pink represents compassion, nurturing and love. Pink relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of care. Pink garments are often viewed as romantic, feminine, girly and dainty.
