The year 2019 was all about the colour — Millennial Pink. Celebrities and fashionistas were seen flaunting the colour with confidence and style. But this season, trends have become topsy turvy. A close relative to Hot Pink is Bubblegum Pink which is all the rage now. This bright and vibrant colour has stolen the show and celebrities like Deepika Padukone, Diana Penty, Sara Ali Khan, Priyanka Chopra and many others have sported the colour with panache.

After the dull and boring month of December, we are quite done with subtle and nude shades. The upcoming season calls for colours that will instantly lift moods. “Bubble gum pink is perfect for the summer! It will instantly warm up your day,” shares designer Reshma Kunhi. When you’re wearing a colour as bright as bubblegum pink, designer Laxmi Krishna says that you are immediately establishing your presence. She further adds, “You are also indirectly conveying the message that you are daring, bright and exciting. But you do have to be in the right mindset to pull this colour off.” Giving us some styling tips Reshma says, “For something to wear to the office, you can opt for a bubble gum pink colour shirt with grey pants or skirt. It even looks good when combined with shades of beige and camel. But if aren’t comfortable wearing such a bright colour, you can still sport it in the form of stilettoes which can be worn with a black dress or saree.”


Agreeing with Reshma is designer Neeta Rai who shares that you can have a burst of pink to break the monotony. She says, “For me, Bubblegum pink is not a colour that I’d suggest on monotone silhouettes. However, this colour would look great as a supporting piece or as accessories to monotones like black or white. For instance, wearing a bubble gum pink slip with an all-white pantsuit will look like a breath of fresh air. To break the monotony of a plain black dress, one can try wearing a bubblegum pink poof or accessorise an all-black look with bubblegum pink clutch or shoes.” Our experts suggest that when you are wearing such a bright colour, one should go easy on the accessories. Laxmi says, “Since the outfit is a statement in itself, don’t experiment with accessories. Opt for minimal jewellery and with crimped hair to complete the look.”
