Transition Color: Hot Pink

Hot pink is the perfect color to transition your winter wardrobe into Spring.

Hot pink is bright and bold; cheerful and fun.  It has the frivolous spirit of Spring but enough depth to work back to the black basics in your winter wardrobe.  Quite the charming hue!

This revelation came about when I wore this blouse from DKNY last week with my black Columnist pants from Express.

A hot pink blouse or t-shirt make a statement on their own.  When working with a plain hot pink top, add a black statement necklace for extra style.  If hot pink is too hot for you, try a hot pink underpinning (such as the Old Navy Marc Jacobs-inspired blouse for $12.00) beneath a black jacket.  Or mix in a hot pink accessory to a black top or dress for a bright and easy outfit update.

Black and hot pink make for a powerful combination that is seasonally appropriate when pastels and neutrals feel too light.  Hot pink is most definitely so hot, you will be able to transition your hot pink items into your warm weather wardrobe.  And with a color this hot, surely your attitude will match.
