One of the colors that is currently in the spotlight is pink. Pink is not just a color, it is a statement. With pink we express strength, self-confidence and individuality, but with pink we also express femininity in all its nuances.
Pink in various shades such as pink or magenta was not always the classic girl color. Until around the 19th century, pink was even considered the color of boys, while light blue was the color of girls. Pink was the “little red” that used to be traditionally associated with male strength and energy, while the soft baby blue was reminiscent of the blue cape of the Blessed Virgin Mary and was therefore reserved for girls. The strong magenta was also considered a particularly masculine color – it was the color of kings, who always wore a purple cloak. It was only with industrialization that the roles changed and girls were now dressed in pink while boys wore blue.
Pink in fashion – super trendy!
In recent years, designers and influencers have repeatedly put pink at the center of the fashion world. This color is no longer limited to the cliché of “Barbie pink” but is worn in different shades and in different clothing. Pink is versatile and perhaps that is exactly what makes this color so fascinating. It can be worn in both casual and formal outfits. In addition, pink expresses self-confidence and independence, qualities that are particularly valued today.
7 styling tips for your pink pants
Would you also like to jump on the Pretty in Pink bandwagon and dress up like a Barbie? If pink tops are a bit too bright for you, or if you’re not sure whether pink suits you at all, then just go for pink pants – you definitely won’t go wrong! Here are seven tips on how to style your basic pink pants correctly:
► Pink & Neutral
The bright color pink can be toned down with clean neutrals. Simply wear your pink pants with a white, black or gray top to neutralize the color.
Tip: Neutrals like beige or taupe also harmonize perfectly with pink and create a super elegant and feminine look. Wear a beige pussy-bow blouse with pink Marlene trousers and you are ready for whatever the business world demands of you!
► Fabrics and textures
Complement your pink pants with patterned or textured tops to add depth to the outfit. Ideal for summer: shirts in the current trend material terry cloth. In winter you score points with cuddly plush.
► Pink & Accessories
When it comes to accessories, you should be careful when combining them with a bright color like pink. The color itself is an eye-catcher in itself, so you can switch things down a notch when it comes to jewelry etc. Simple gold or silver jewelry goes perfectly with pink and adds glamor to the look.
► Pink all over
If you’re feeling brave, you can create a monochrome outfit in different shades of pink for the ultimate eye-catching effect. Simply combine the pink trousers with a top or blouse in rosé tones and a jacket in magenta!
► Break in style
Wear your feminine pink pants with a loose t-shirt and sneakers for a relaxed look and the ultimate break in style. The following applies: the coarser the sneakers, the greater the contrast.
► Pattern mix
You can also take full advantage of patterns here. Be it a blouse in the classic Burberry pattern, a cool oversized retro dress for the dress over pants look or the black and white striped striped shirt from your capsule wardrobe – whatever you like is allowed!
