The Pink Ladies

I'm nuts about the hues for spring. Call ‘em the Pink Ladies: blush, mauve, peach and any shade of pastel-y pink.  These kids will definitely rule the school.

To appear modern, go to extremes: sweet via airy, ruffly tops and skirts or hard via leather vests and boots with zippers and studs. Wear them alone or with other complimentary neutrals (grey, army green and khaki are popular). Avoid adding too much “other” color; you want to be the cool kid, not the prom queen.

They can be tricky to wear, so seek balance in your styling:

- Reach for peach? Opt for a cherry red lip and clear baubles.
- Mojo is mauve? Try dark raisin nails and loads of graphite bangles.
- Rush for blush? Rock with pink gold hoops and a gorgeous bronzer.
- Think pink? Sport in a killer wedge and an oversized scarf in tan.

This time it's OK to follow the crowd, just no pink slips.
