    Tip: Pink outerwear brightens up a neutral palette.

    There’s something so Rear Window about a pale, pink coat. Pair it with a neutral layer, like a white paneled skirt, and you’ll be on your way to creating a modern, Grace Kelly-inspired ensemble.

    Tip: Make a monochrome statement with this hair color.

    Peroxide pink: yes, it’s an actual thing. We wouldn’t recommend testing this look out at the office, per se, but why not take it for a spin this weekend?

    Tip: Committing to a pink suit? Go Carrie Bradshaw on it with a striped shirt and statement brooch.

    There’s a school of thought (endorsed by us) that whatever Carrie Bradshaw wore on Sex and the City is basically perfection. So, naturally, when we spotted this Bradshaw-esque suit on the streets we began recreating, immediately!

    Tip: A stole in a pop of pink works unexpected magic.

    No longer reserved for nights out on the town, this accessory has found its place in the light of day. Take a cue from this street styler and wear a pink stole over a solid-colored outfit for maximum impact.

    Tip: Pink and Purple can be worn together, and here’s how.

    It's only natural to shy away from cliché color combinations, but London-based stylist Julia Sarr Jamois’ rendition of a pink Celine coat and purple turtleneck reaffirmed that you shouldn't fix what isn't broken.

    Tip: You cannot go wrong with a simple, pink sweater.

    Tip: Mix volumes, shades, and prints of pink.

    If you're looking to get the most out of your revived love for pink, we suggest an outfit à la Laura Bailey. Her Simone Rocha Wide-Leg Wool-Blend Pants ($1070) look bold next to that fuchsia, printed blouse. Ground the ensemble with a pale bomber jacket or coat.
