All our lives, we’ve come to believe that certain colors are deemed appropriate to represent gender. For the case of women; well, we’ve all been bound to either get dolled up in head to toe pink or we’ve sprinkled our belongings with a certain shades of it. Pink has been a part of our lives, no matter how engrossed we are in various genres of living: punk, geek, hipster, etc. It has been the color of universal femininity, a color we turn to represent the common identity we have as women, albeit very diverse and special in some sort of way. So as a form of appraisal to the most powerful color there is, what better way to dress ourselves up but by spraying our wardrobes with none other than PINK.
I am a huge fan of the minimalistic art form, whether it may be through paintings, sculptures, and most especially through garment pairings. Combining pink with any nude colored apparel is the most ingenious idea there is as it gives out a very sophisticated yet casual look, without being too frivolous and pretentious.
And by Anna we mean the one and only fabulous editor-in-chief in the whole of magazine publications!!!! Enthusiasm aside, why not pair a delicate pink top with a well structured pink skirt? Playing with various texture and shades is a good play to try, and don’t worry about looking too floppy - the best ideas come from experimentation. As long as you’ve set your mind to channeling an icon, surely nothing will go wrong.
Punk should not always mean ragged or distressed, it may sometimes denote youthfulness, defiance of traditions. Pairing tailored looks with run of the mill jeans should never look less of a disgrace, but more of an unforeseen goodness in dressing. Oh, and don’t forget to match the outfit with a classic monochromatic bag!
Prettiest in Pink
Brand wise, I guess the two of the most creative to hold on to the real essence of pink are powerhouses Gucci and Chloé. Just have a mere look at their collections and you’ll understand what I’m saying.
But come to think of it, isn’t so crazy how all our lives we’ve come to believe that colors may become true indicators of gender. How only “real men wear pink” or how garnering a dark spectrum of a wardrobe would closely mean masculinity. Color is dictated by the varying frequencies/wavelengths in the spectrum of visible light, or alteast that’s what it means physics wise. Given this however, light visibility shouldn’t be a prime gauge of identity, but the by how visible we channel our life in the way we wore clothes.
