(Spanish CNN) – I love the trend of a “fashion in pink”, to live a fascinating “life in pink”, as the romantic and beautiful song La Vie en Rose says, which the unforgettable Edith Piaf sang with all her soul.

And looking at the latest fashion shows – and the red carpets of many events, such as the Grammy Awards, for example – the presence of pink was a vibrant touch of joy and glamor.

And within the “pink” very bright shades are used, such as “Mexican pink” or “shocking pink”, and a more intense fuchsia pink, ideal for brunettes, reds and radiant golden blondes. As well as that tender and soft baby pink, which looks so good on pale blonde women – and with a serene and delicate personality -. Just like we love accessories! Shoes, divine bags, costume jewelery, a whole world of new designs in pink. Good boy!

Color in fashion, as we all know, has a lot to do with each person’s personality and style. And wearing what makes us feel good! There are women who look (and feel) regal with bright, dramatic colors, such as deep reds, yellows and pinks, almost neon pink. Others passionately reject certain colors and feel good only in black (I confess to being one of them) or in the purity of white. And there are the “beige women”, who feel comfortable and elegant without attracting attention – just use very neutral colors – and beige or sand are their best allies. So are human beings and the use of color is something very personal.

Designers and brands such as Prada, YSL, Valentino (his latest show was a hymn to “hot pink”), Oscar de la Renta and many others have delighted us with many options of the color pink, and in stores you will find versions for all. pockets. And a metallic pink bag, like that of Ximena Kavalekas, is a touch that changes and modernizes every look. I recommend you take a look at it!

It’s just that pink – almost like an exception – is a cute and flattering color that almost all of us like, and since we were little girls it’s one of our favorite colors. Right yes? And this summer season we will see it in all kinds of designs. And in a world full of conflict, pink is a refreshing and certainly very welcome trend.
