Wear it pink!

Don’t be surprised if you see a lot of people wearing pink when you venture out tomorrow! On Friday 22 October it is ‘wear it pink day’ in support of Breast Cancer Awareness which runs throughout October.

It could be a favourite top, shirt, shoes or a crazy hat, but it’s a great opportunity to help raise awareness as well as vital funds.

If you’re not sure what your best shade of pink is to wear then fear not. Here I have created some suggested combinations of wearing pink. I hope this helps to inspire you to wear your best shade of pink today, even if you’ve not had your colours done. Simply use the celeb examples below and descriptions as a way of identifying yourself. Or, if you’d like to know more, then get in touch about my colour analysis consultations. 

Lights and deeps wearing pink


Think Reece Witherspoon – light delicate colouring, naturally blonde hair and light eyes. Wearing a delicate pink such as a pale pink or dusty rose shade will look fabulous when worn with another light shade such as Stone.


Next up think Michelle Obama or Rachel Weiz with dark hair, dark eyes and any skin tone.
For you, try a deeper shade of pink with a strong, deep colour such as Charcoal.

Warms and cools wearing pinkWarms

Stacey Dooley is a fabulous example with warm hair and skin tones which will have a golden appearance. Eyes can be green, blue and all different shades of brown. You’re best steering clear from any cooler shades. Instead opt for Coral and team with Golden Brown.


Here we have Jamie Lee Curtis with ash and grey hair tones, any colour eyes and either a pink or blue skin undertone. You suit many shades of pink so go for it! Try Hot Pink and wear it with Light Grey to give contrast.

Clears and softs wearing pink

Sophie Ellis-Bexter is a fabulous clear with her bright sparkling eyes with lots of contrast with her hair and skin tone. A brighter shade of pink is much more flattering especially when worn with a strong colour such as Black.


A fellow soft is Emma Watson or Kate Winslet. They have blonde to medium brown hair, any eye colour (which will be muted). Like me, they have very little contrast between their hair, eye and skin tone. A perfect shade of pink would be shell or a dusty shade and worn with a similar toned colour such as claret.

Show your support and wear pink today! Join in on social media too with the hashtag #wearpink – it would be lovely to see you.
