The best fashion seasons are when what you’ve always loved becomes what’s in vogue.

While watching the fall runway shows and thumbing through my favorite fashion mags, I was tickled to see the amount of pink being shown.  Often derided as too young or too girlie of a color, soft ballerina pink seems to finally be having its moment.

Instyle had their September “Color Crash Course” in how to wear the soft pink hue they call begonia.  They encouraged women to realize that the youthful color can be worn with polish and sophistication.

It took only a moment at Prada’s fall fashion show to see the color of choice.  Not only were many of the models dressed in soft pink, so were the walls, the drinks, and even the canapes!   “Soft pop” is what Miuccia Prada called the hue.

Cotton candy pink is surprisingly versatile and easy to wear.  These large button studs complement the Instyle-approved colors of camel and hunter green, but could also be the subtle color added to a navy or black outfit.

The pink trend will continue this spring as Pantone just released their color palette for 2016 and “rose quartz” was listed as one of spring’s top colors.  Pantone said that rose quartz “conveys compassion and a sense of composure”.

Whether called begonia, soft pop, cotton candy, or rose quartz, this color is having a major moment.
