I Am Not a Hot-Pink Person, But These 13 Outfits Are Changing Me

I wouldn’t call myself color averse, but a quick glance at my closet or the contents of my dresser won’t turn up much pink. It’s not a conscious choice per se, but more of a reflection of what feels most me at the moment. In fact, it's why you might say my most recent obsession has caused me to look a little harder in the mirror. Am I a hot-pink person? My darker-hued wardrobe and I really didn’t think so.

Somehow, though, this season’s bright pink trend picks up right where the rosy color craze of seasons past left off. While Millennial Pink was so widely appealing for its ability to nearly act as a neutral, this recent hot-pink trend somehow feels equally cool and not overly saccharine. It’s an equitable alternative to a classic bold red (one of my personal-favorite color trends) and feels just as daring and confident when worn head to toe.

In case you’re not as convinced as I am that you need to clear some hanger space for hot pink, perhaps the below 13 outfits will sway you.

If you're still not on board with pink, take a look at the color trend that went absolutely viral on the Emmys red carpet this year.
