Trends. Hot Pink Done Right For Spring and Summer

May 28, 2008 • Fashion

We’ve seen a lot of people pushing hot pink for Spring, without any real life clues on how to do it right. Well, here are some trend-setters we’ve seen recently, rocking hot pink properly!

DeAnna Pappas, The Bachelorette– Although we’re sure the men have no idea what is so alluring about DeAnna, we definitely are crediting part of her charm to the hot pink pout she wore throughout the second episode of the season. She takes it from daytime to evening flawlessly. We can’t wait to rack up a tan dark enough to emulate her!

(These pictures hardly do it justice, but it was popping pink!)

Rihanna in Maroon 5’s "If I Never Seen Your Face Again" music video– Don’t be distracted by her sexy cranberry bustier early on, because we’re referring to the hot pink halter dress she wears at about the 1:50 mark in this steamy, steamy video. Rihanna looks so smoking that the dress could be fire-engine red, but it’s not! Take notes on how to make pink super sexy.


Posietint from Benefit Cosmetics– The new pink sister of the red cheek and lip tint from Benefit. It’s not exactly the same consistency of Benefit’s classic stain, but it warms your cheeks up just as nicely for Spring and Summer, or just for those with fair skin! Buy it here at Sephora.

This Spring and Summer, get ready to wear hot pink or pair it into your wardrobe, or gloss it on with whatever you’re wearing. As Winter wanes (well, not here in Chicago, but we assume it is warming
up other places…), we predict hot pink will knock bright red right
off its pedestal, and we’re ready for it!
