The Fashion Magpie The Hot Pink Edit

The Hot Pink Edit.

Hot pink is suddenly everywhere, and I’m loving it. (Perhaps we have Carey Mulligan to thank?). Years ago, I bought a pair of hot pink satin mules from Christian Louboutin and they remain one of my all-time favorite purchases. Sometimes you need a pair of shoes that scream: “Take me dancing!” These current-season hot pink Alexandre Birmans are for that reason stoking my envy. Can you imagine how fabulous they’d be with a navy velvet gown?! Swoon!

As for as styling, I’d take a cue from past-season Jil Sander and pair with navy for a shockingly elegant take. I’m also loving it paired with black velvet (somehow the richness and depth of that fabric/color elevate the hot pink) or cream/ivory.

Below, some favorite hot pink finds and how I’d style…

PEOPLE FAR CHICER THAN I HAVE LOST THEIR MINDS OVER THESE KHAITE PUMPS…I FEEL INTIMIDATED BY THEM BUT THEY ARE A TRUE STATEMENT!

Or, try just a sip of the trend by pairing hot pink lipstick (I have and love Nars’ Schiap color!) with your black velvet holiday dress.

P.S. I feel like all of these looks would be enhanced by these statement accessories.

P.P.S. On 3 a.m. parties.
