Rihanna stepped out in New York this week for the 2012 Time 100 Gala wearing a voluminous hot pink gown courtesy of Marchesa. If you want to work the shade with equal sass, here’s how.
Hot pink may be the colour of princesses and Barbie dolls, but there’s nothing stopping you from wearing the bold colour whilst maintaining that modern style edge. Here’s a few looks worth trying with tips to balance the rich colour and style.
DO: Go for a bright pink dress. Use pastel and neutral accessories to keep it chic.
DON’T: Go OTT with the pink. A matching dress, shoes and bag is not a good look.
DO: Go for relaxed styles. The high maintenance shade looks great on a baggy t-shirt.
DON’T: Be scared to mix in pattern. A solid colour like pink looks great with chic monochrome stripes.
