Why pink is the colour of the moment
Posted on May 28 2021
The annual Billboard Music Awards went off in spectacular style this year, with a slew of musicians dressing to impress. And while the red carpet was awash with a kaleidoscope of colourful outfits, one hue undoubtedly reigned supreme - pink.

Alicia Keys turned heads in a bubblegum, three-piece ensemble featuring a crop top, straight-leg trousers and a voluminous opera cape. Pink meanwhile stayed true to her namesake by frocking up in a plunging fuschia maxi dress with blouson sleeves and an empire-line waist tie.
And who could forget rapper Saweetie’s apricot Giambattista Valli frock, complete with pink rosettes and a playful tulle underlayer? The old adage, ‘think pink!’ never rang so true.
While winter may not seem like the perfect season to pull out your brightest outfits, there’s a strong case to be made for wearing pink at this time of year. Aside from being an easy way to stand out from the crowd, donning a pink outfit can also help you take a mental break from the feeling of dreariness and fatigue that inevitably affects most of us each winter.
Indeed, there’s also some science behind wearing pink too. Studies show that wearing soft pink can evoke notions of sweetness, romance, femininity and gentleness, while hot pink can be associated with rebellion, passion, boldness and youthfulness.
