This week I was watching the Audrey Hepburn classic 1957 American musical romantic comedy movie, Funny Face and the overture song ‘Think Pink’ had me all excited about wearing pink . The chorus sings that pink is perfect for everyone and every occasion and…….even shampoo and toothpaste should be pink!Little girls around the world love pink. It is a colour that reflects sweetness, innocence and uncomplicated emotions. Most of us have associated pink with the ‘Barbie’ revolution but now fashion is certainly having a close affection with this colour and it’s creeping into the grown up wardrobes.There are many shades of pink……magenta, hot pink, rose, bubblegum, watermelon, fuscia….to name a few. Whichever pink you pick, it’s guaranteed to make your outfit fizz.
When you shop this summer, and see pink, know that everything is going to be rosy because, according to colour psychology, pink represents compassion, nurturing and love. It also may indicate happiness and good health.
This year pink has been a strong feature on the Fall/Winter 2016-2017 catwalks so it looks like the 1957 Think Pink colour anthem got it right, pink is now the colour to which you gotta switch as it makes your day, makes your night……and it can even make your year.
