Call it cliché. Blame the Hallmark effect. No matter which way we slice it, there’s something about this time of year that has us wanting to see everything through rose-colored glasses. That’s right, it's time we just admit to it: We’re positively possessed by pink.
No, we’re not talking about the roses at Botany, Hollywood's iconic hot dog stand Pink’s, or everyone’s favorite local faux-celebrity Angelyne (a.k.a. the real-life Barbie) and her pink Corvette — though, if we’re being totally honest, we’re pretty enamored by all three. And, no, we’re not talking about any shade in particular; whether pale, neon, blush, or rose, our obsession spans all hues. On the street and in stores, pink is appearing on everything from socks to plastic raincoats.
Unlike some pinks of the past, these all have a little something extra to them that gives them a subtle edge, kick, and, sometimes, even some sass. Ahead, we give in to our craving, and round up our top 23 favorite pinks that will, without a doubt, brighten up both your closet and the dreariest of days.
