Hot pink was all over the red carpet this awards season. It’s very much a hot shade for Spring 2019. Hot pink can be a little tricky to style and look chic, but I’ll help you find and style this shade so you can wear it with confidence.
While I’m very much a girly girl who loves a pretty pink dress, the specific shade of hot pink isn’t in my closet a ton. Today I’m sharing 6 hot pink pieces I’m loving for spring and how I would style them.
SELF PORTRAIT HOT PINK RUFFLE DRESS (wearing a size 2)
1. A HOT PINK STATEMENT DRESS
If you are going to go all out with a hot pink dress, I would suggest pairing it with nude pumps, a gold statement earring, a neutral bag (think white, nude, or gold), and a nude or soft pink lip. I fell head over heels for this breathtaking Self Portrait hot pink ruffled dress. The light weight chiffon keep the dress classy and whimsical. This dress is enough of a statement, so I wouldn’t recommend overdoing it with a hot pink lip or other matching accessories. That’s where the look would go from chic to overdoing it.
2. A HOT PINK LIP
I usually only wear a hot pink lip in the spring and summer. When I do I usually pair it with a simple white blouse or white dress. I don’t like mixing in too many color with a bold pink lip. I also tend to shy away from wearing statement earrings. Just a simple earrings, minimal eyeshadow, and a simple winged eyeliner to balance it out should do the trick! I wrote about more of my favorite pink lip shades in this post. I also love the bright fuchsia color I wore in The May Dress Shoot!
3. A HOT PINK BATHING SUIT
Hot pink is so perfect for the pool or beach! It’s a flattering shade on all skin tones. I have a hot pink suit I wore in this post and I feel so much more tan when I wear it. With summer around the corner I have my eye on a few of these great hot pink suits.
4. A HOT PINK BLAZER
I own this hot pink blazer and I really love it. I haven’t worn it for a while, so I’m excited to start rotating it into my wardrobe again for spring. Again – let the blazer speak for itself, and pair with neutrals. I think a white crew neck tee and white pants with casual slides would be really cute with a hot pink blazer.
5. A HOT PINK BLOUSE
I found a few really cute hot pink blouses. I’m usually turned off by the idea of a hot pink blouse, but if there are ruffles or lace involved I can get onboard. I think a hot pink blouse needs to be fairly frilly, all out girl. I don’t think I would get a classic button-up blouse or a tee in a hot pink. I think of hot pink as a statement color, so the cut of the top needs to be a statement as well. I think a hot pink blouse is the only time I think a hot pink lip or statement earrings would be appropriate (not both though!). If it’s balanced with jeans and a nude pump and loose waves or a simply pony it can look really chic with that same color pop on the lip or ear!
