For me, pink is such a positive colour. It makes me feel happy, energetic, and flirty.
Pink is associated with femininity, beauty, love and romance as well as all things cute and girly. Where light pink is delicate and soft and represents tenderness, hot pink is arresting and lively and represents playfulness.
The combination of red and white, pink takes the best characteristics from both and demands its own attention and admiration. Red is such a strong and visible colour – it automatically captures the eye, stirs up energy and stimulates intense emotions which is why it epitomises desire and sexuality, passion and seduction and also anger and danger.
The innocence and coolness of white alleviates the force of exciting, assertive, action-inducing red, replacing it with a calmer, more gentle energy. So, pink is actually the soft and sweet yet sensual side of red but without the fervency and extremity of emotions.
Obviously, the deeper the pink the closer to red so, the more passion and energy it exudes. Therefore, hot pink is very much a passionate, dynamic colour intermixed with warmth so it’s quite playful though still sexy and enticing. It doesn’t radiate the aggression and potency of red making it a less overpowering version of red. That’s why hot pink is my favourite colour and red is second.
Combining hot pink with darker colours such as black, navy, charcoal, purple or dark green adds classiness and depth to the otherwise playful and vibrant colour.
For Spring, Nine West have released these gorgeous hot pink, point-toe pumps. I love Nine West shoes because they are stylish, comfortable and reasonably priced.
The pretty floral pattern blended with splashes of various animal prints makes these heels truly unique, unlike your typical bright-coloured pump. They certainly make a statement and add a touch of femininity, sassiness and understated sexiness to any outfit.
