This season everyone is crazy about pink. The pink craze is rubbing off on me in a big way-- and not just because Valentine’s Day is coming up. Pink is the color of self-worth, femininity and, most of all, girlishness in the Western world. Being a combination of white and red, pink is a perfect harmonious blend-- less aggressive than red, but more charming and playful than white. With that said, I found some beautiful dresses to show off your playful fun side, in a color that can be worn anywhere with major female acceptance.

The David Meister Plunge Satin Dress is a deep pink with a plunging neckline. This dress is as sexy as pink can get-- perfect for a confident woman who likes to show off her fun, girly side. The plunging neckline is softened by the longer length, imitating a pencil skirt. The cut of this dress is undeniably one of my three favorite styles, which is flattering on everyone.

Next up, a sophisticated pale pink linen blend dress by Tory Burch that is to die for! I love the fact that this can be worn to work because it is conservative, yet it is charmingly alluring. The emphasized waist on this Tory Burch Melanie Sheath Dress has button details, giving it a classy touch.

My third dress recommendation is the Bebe Goddess Pink Square Pleat Button Dress. It is casual, but can be dressed up with shoes and accessories. Being silk blend with satin finish makes this casual style a little bit more fun and shiny. I adore the fact that this dress is pleated, and has a belt to accentuate the waistline. The buttons all the way down the dress make it flirty, but watch out! Make sure you get the right size because you don’t want skin showing through any part of this dress, that isn’t meant to show off! This dress reminds me of a white collared shirt with a lot of sass and a lot of flair.

My last pink find is great for a boyish figure. This Twelfth Street New Waisted Slip Dress has a beautiful soft silhouette. It is a delicate slip dress with skinny adjustable straps, showing off the collarbone. Similar to the previous dresses, this also has a cinched waistline and, as an added bonus, it has side slits.

Don’t be shy-- tap into the pink craze. With positive connotations such as self-acceptance, why pass up this fashion trend? There is a reason breast cancer ribbons are pink… they are on to something. Be confident, be charming and everything else will fall into place.
