Spring Fashion Trend: Pink

Continuing CF's series on spring fashion trends, today I wanted to talk about one of the hottest colors to hit Spring 2008 runways, which just happens to be my favorite color ever... pink!

From cotton candy to fuchsia, many fashion designers incorporated shades of pink into their spring runway collections with diverse, yet equally fabulous results.

Designers going the pastel route included Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors and Betsey Johnson.  These looks were very ethereal, and the pink was usually on a dress or skirt (although Michael Kors made some nice pink bags!)

Hot pink wasn't one of the top 10 fashion colors for spring 2008, but that didn't stop fashion houses like Alexander McQueen and Burberry Prorsum from using it in their ready-to-wear runway shows.

While Burberry displayed some gorgeous solid hot pink dresses, McQueen used the shade as an accent color, pairing his outfits with magenta belts, shoes, and accessories.  This is a great way to wear the trend, because it's cute and colorful without being over-the-top.

Like Elle Woods from Legally Blonde, I'm sort of obsessed with pink, so of course I'm very excited to have an extra excuse to wear it all spring, haha!  In honor of this trend, here are a bunch of pink clothes, shoes and accessories that I'm in love with right now!
