Get pretty in pink for under $50

What can I say? I love the 80s trend for spring 2012. The throwback shoes, bright colors, and increased popularity in 80s movies have me in pop culture heaven. One of the spring trends that is a huge part of things 80s is the color pink. Whether it is bright neon punk pink or the feminine Shelby shades of blush and bashful, pink is in for spring. So ladies it is time get pretty in pink for less than $50.

The Pretty Pink Dress

Spring is made for flirty, feminine dresses. What is more feminine and flirty than a pretty pink dress? For spring, the soft pastel of a baby pink is beautiful and complements most skin tones. Don't pass on those pretty pink floral prints either. They are very trendy this season and pay homage to the spring flowers that come into bloom.

The Hot, Pink Blouse

Not every woman is a dress kind of gal. For those of us who enjoy our separates, pretty feminine blouses with a sexy edge to them work well for spring. A large pink floral or graphic print blouse is very trendy. However, a bolder pink solid or subtle print in a slinky style is very modern and sexy. For work, try a more subdued shade of pink like a pale rose.

The Flirty Pink Skirt

Spring skirts are normally fun and flirty to fit in with the season. Add a spring punch, pink hue to a skirt for added fun this season. Whether you choose a mini, midi or maxi skirt buy one in your favorite shade of pink this spring. To incorporate trends look for a printed pink skirt.

Sexy, Cool Pink Denim for Spring

Colored denim just may be here to stay. So we'd better get used to it. If bright denim colors don't appeal to you, take the intensity down a notch. A soft pink denim pant is casual with feminine flair when paired with the right shoe and top.
