One of this year’s hottest colors, pink can be found all over the high-street and in high-end boutiques alike. But, it can be one of those tricky colors to style. If you do it wrong, there is a risk of looking like a 5-year-old going to a fairy princess birthday party. If you get it right, however, you will be hitting all the right notes in the style stakes.
Have a look below to find out how celebs style pink, and our top tips for wearing this gorgeous color.
1. Pair With Other Colors & Patterns
If you don’t want to look too girly, it is best to team a pink piece of clothing with other colors and bold patterns, like Alexa Chung here.
Alexa plays down her pale pink jumper by wearing it with bold striped trousers and black heeled shoes. These statement pieces tone down the femininity of the pink jumper, creating an outfit which is bang on-trend.
2. Keep Hair & Accessories Simple
Here Jessica Alba has gone for a gorgeous hot pink maxi dress. She has slicked back her hair to keep the outfit very cool and not Barbie-like.
Pairing the dress with low-key accessories prevents the outfit looking too busy and keeps the attention on the dress.
If you want to get Jessica Alba’s sunglasses look, take a look at the Carrera CARRERA 130/S. They are bang on-trend with their double bridge, gold metal frame and pink-tinted lenses.

You can add just a touch of pink to your outfit through carefully chosen accessories. Here, Gigi Hadid and her sister have opted for pink heels, which look both elegant and feminine. You could also opt to add pink through your handbag, sunglasses or jewelry.
Get the look with the Adidas Originals AOR014 retro cat-eye shape and bold pink frames. Adding a touch of vintage girly glamour to any outfit.

Or if you’re looking for sunglasses which are slightly more subtle, the Animal POP have an oversized lens shape with a pale pink translucent frame.

Here Brazilian model Izabel Goulart rocks this gorgeous dusky pink oversized tailored trouser suit.
This outfit is super chic and feminine, without the pink looking too overly girlie. This suit looks fab with a smart white shirt, but would look equally fantastic with a white slogan tee for a more relaxed look.
Below, fashion blogger Mary Ortan proves that a tailored trouser suit looks equally stylish in a bright hot pink too. This gorgeous slim fitted suit would look equally great worn to the office and on a night out.
5. Rock Pink Makeup
One of the easiest and most affordable ways to achieve the pink look is to rock a gorgeous pink lip or even some pink-tinted eyeshadow. YouTuber and beauty guru Amelia Liana here wears a gorgeous rose colored lip color. Have a look at this great YouTube tutorial which shows you how to achieve a pink eyeshadow look.
