I'm sorry to say guys, but pink is in! Why sorry? For me it comes down to the use of the colour in films, often with the ditzy character drowning in pink. Or it could be the fact that as a female the colour pink is rammed down your throat from day one. In fact, I would probably bet that every child when they are born have been given a gender specific coloured gift, and if your a girl, don't ask why, its pink. So, if I have a clear aversion to the colour, why have I been rocking the most in your face pink puffer? Because right now I am starting to fall back in lust with it again. Why not love? I don't think our relationship is quite there yet!
Maybe my new found lust has something to do with politics. 'Huh, pink and politics?' No I am not rewriting Legally Blonde 2. But with the recent women's marches and the insurgent of feminism into fashion, for example, the Dior show where the T-shirts were branded with the message 'We should all be feminist' (here, here), it was only a matter of time before the most feminine of all colours was reclaimed from the shadows of a stereotype and given a new lease of life. It is, after all, the most in your face historically gender specific colour, and by wearing pink I feel like I am giving the middle finger to those who attach a stigma to the colour. And anything that feels like its breaking the norm/perceptions is okay with me.
