14 Pink Outfit Ideas You Can Recreate Today To Embrace The Color of Summer!

14 Pink Outfit Ideas

What are your thoughts on the color pink? If you’ve been a follower or email subscriber for a while, you probably already know how I feel about pink. But if you’re new here…I am a HUGE lover of the color pink! All shades of pink…pale pinks, hot pinks, neon pinks, reddish pinks…you name it, I’ve probably tried it and loved it! Wearing a bright color like pink can really bring out the fun in your wardrobe. Pink has always been a color that makes me feel happy, feminine, and chic.

Pink has become very trendy recently and has been dubbed the “Barbiecore” trend. The new Barbie movie coming in July 2023 along with Valentino’s 2022 fashion show where they featured a fully hot pink collection, and designers coming out with lots of pink pieces has made this trend very BIG. Whether you’re a pink lover like me or just want to dip your toe in the pink color trend, I’m sharing a bunch of fun pink outfit ideas to inspire you to wear more color! Even if pink isn’t your color of choice, try recreating these looks with red, green, blue, or whatever color you prefer! Or, try swapping the pink clothes for shoes, accessories, or makeup looks instead. But most importantly…have fun with it!

Pink Outfit Ideas over 40

Light Pink Outfits

Light Pink Blouse & Denim Jeans

I’m breaking up each of the pink outfit ideas into 5 categories…light pink outfits, hot pink outfits, all pink outfits, pink party outfits, and casual pink outfits. First up is light pink outfits! A lighter pink (versus hot pink) can feel more wearable if you’re just dipping your toe into the pink trend. In this first look, I’m wearing a light pink blouse by Aje with chic Agolde denim shorts. This is could also be considered a more casual pink option but the gorgeous details on the blouse really take it up a notch. I love the gold button detail, cutouts on the sleeves, and beautiful silky fabric.

The Agolde shorts I paired with it are a new addition to my denim shorts collection and are SO good. The fit is great, they have an 11” rise and 4” inseam, and I love the uncut hem! You could also style this light pink blouse (or any light pink top you already own) with a pair of white denim shorts, white jeans, or white pants!

Pink Vest & Flare Jeans

Pink Vest & Flare Jeans

If you’re headed into spring and live in a cooler climate, consider adding a pink sweater or sweater vest to your wardrobe. I’m wearing a pink sweater vest by Me+Em that has a detachable snood. I took off the snood and layered it over a sheer sleeve blouse for a gorgeous spring look. But I’ve also worn it with the snood and nothing underneath, which is a great option if you love your arms!
I styled the pink sweater vest with some light-wash flare jeans by Alice + Olivia. These exact jeans have been in and out of stock for months so if you see them in your size, grab them! The flared leg is super flattering and I love the edgy seam down the front that helps elongate the legs even more. Throw on a pair of white booties, some espadrilles, or even sneakers you’re ready to go!

pink outfit ideas for ladies

Pink Button-Down & White Jeans

Next up is this fun light pink button-down shirt by Zadig & Voltaire. It’s an older piece from last summer so I’ll try to find a similar pink shirt. But I love the idea of wearing a classic button-down in a fun, unexpected color like this! I paired it with some white jeans, but you could wear shorts, light wash denim, white jeans, or some trousers! Complete your look with sneakers or flats to run errands, wedges for lunch, or heels for dinner.

Pale Pink Office Outfit

Pale Pink Office Outfit

I shared this pink office outfit a long time ago and it’s such a fun office outfit idea, I had to share it again! I’m wearing a matching pale pink blazer and pink pants that would be so chic and unexpected for the office this spring or summer. The exact outfit is sold out, but I linked some more options below. Even if you don’t work in an office, you can wear a pink blazer with jeans, a tee, and sneakers for a sophisticated but casual look during spring and summer! Or consider trying a shorts suit for a fun event outfit!

Pink Lace Blouse & Straight Leg Jeans

Hot Pink Outfits

Pink Lace Blouse & Straight Leg Jeans

If you’re a fan of hot pink…you’re going to love the rest of the looks in this post! First up is this hot pink lace blouse by L’Agence that I purchased a few months ago. I love the lace, puff sleeves, and bright pink color that really makes a statement. I styled it with some straight-leg jeans and black booties. But you could make a few swaps to make it more spring or summer ready like wearing lighter wash jeans, white jeans, or denim shorts, and swap the black booties for white or skin-tone booties, wedges, sandals, or heels.

Pink Mini Dress

Pink Mini Dress

I first shared this gorgeous Alice + Olivia dress in my pink fashion finds post last year after I wore it on a trip to Malibu. Something you’ll realize as you scroll through this post is that I love a gorgeous pink dress! A chic little pink mini dress is a super easy, one-and-done piece you can throw on and be ready in minutes. Wear it with sneakers for running errands or a casual lunch, wedges for brunch with the girls or a dinner date, and throw on some pumps or strappy heels to wear to a wedding. Add some impactful jewelry, and a chic handbag, and voila…you’re ready for anything.

Hot Pink Coat

Hot Pink Coat

If you’re still dealing with cold temps but want to try out the pink trend, this one is for you. In the look above, I’m wearing a gorgeous pink coat from Express over a simple jeans, cami, and booties look. The pink coat really elevates the look. You could also try this out with a pink jacket if you need less warmth.

Pink Sequin Blazer outfit idea

Pink Party Outfits

Pink Sequin Blazer

If you’re looking for some pink party outfits, something to wear to a wedding, or just want some ideas for a special occasion look…these outfits are for you! I wore this outfit during a trip to Paris where I attended the Dior fashion show. You can read more about my experience here if you’re interested. This pink sequined Alice + Olivia blazer is such a fun piece for a special occasion or event. I added it to a more casual look with a white ruffled button-down, dark wash jeans, and booties. But you could dress it up with a blouse and wide-leg trousers, a gorgeous A-line skirt, or drape it over your shoulders while you wear a fabulous dress.

Pink Maxi Dress, Pink Outfit Ideas

Pink Maxi Dress

If you’re looking for a wedding guest dress option, this Farm Rio dress is stunning! The long sleeves and hemline make this dress a modest (but chic) option for a spring or summer wedding. It has a small peek-a-boo cutout right under the bust that’s actually very flattering because of the strategic draping on the chest. I also love the elegance of the silky satin fabric. You can wear a regular bra and it won’t show at the cutout. I styled it with some ivory booties, but I would love to wear this to a spring wedding with some white heels or sandals, a white clutch, and some fun statement earrings.

Pink Puff Sleeve Dresspink aje manifestation dress

Pink Puff Sleeve Dress

I’m sharing the two gorgeous pink puff-sleeve dresses above to show you one option that’s more understated and another that’s over-the-top! Both are gorgeous options but the lighter pink Elle Zeitoune sheath dress on the left is a more wearable example of the pink, puff sleeve dress trend. If you’re looking for an extravagant, show-stopping dress for a big event, then the pink Aje dress on the right is for you. Both are gorgeous options but I’m sharing even more pink puff-sleeve dresses below…

Matching Pink Sequin Set

All Pink Outfits

Matching Pink Set

Next up…all pink outfits! Remember this pink blazer? It’s the same sequined Alice + Olivia blazer I styled with jeans. But this time, I’m wearing it with the matching pink mini skirt for a fun all-pink outfit!  This look would also be a great party look, by the way! You don’t have to wear this exact set, or even a matching set to wear an all-pink outfit. Consider trying a pink blazer with pink pants or a pink blouse with pink pants to try out the all-pink look. I’m sharing more tips to wear pink and pull off this all-pink look effortlessly below…

Pink Feather Top &  Pink Pants, Pink Outfit Ideas

Pink Feather Top &  Pink Pants

This is another look that could also be in the pink party outfits category. It’s SO fun! I’m wearing a pair of flared pink pants and a fun feathered pink top from Karen Millen. You might remember this look from this post where I shared a bunch of outfit ideas for every occasion. I know it’s a bit of a wildcard, but you can take pieces of it to make it more wearable for you. Wear the feather top with white jeans or the pink pants with a white cami and pink blazer. Try out what feels good for you!

Pink Floral Dress & White Blazer, Pink Outfit Ideas

Casual Cute Pink Outfits

Pink Floral Dress & White Blazer

Next up are some more casual pink outfits, although many of the looks above would fit into this category as well. In this look, I’m wearing a cute pink floral dress with sneakers and a blazer. You could ditch the blazer and add a denim jacket for an even more casual look if that’s more your style. I’ve also worn this dress with an oversized white cardigan and knee-high boots for more warmth.

Pink Tank Dress, Pink Outfit Ideas

Pink Tank Dress

This is a really old outfit but I wanted to share a super casual way to wear pink…with a tank dress! A comfortable, chic tank dress is a must-have in every woman’s wardrobe and if you already have a basic tank dress, try out a pink one! Style it with sneakers for an effortlessly chic, casual, cute pink outfit this spring and summer.

How To Wear Pink

How To Wear Pink

Colors to Mix with Pink

I like to mix with pink…pretty much anything! Red, green, or cobalt blue are fun, bold options. Gray, white, black, beige, or navy are sophisticated, sleek options. Go bold with color blocking like I’m wearing in the photo above if you want to try something different.

Go Monochrome

An all-pink outfit is so fun and perfect for a fun special occasion look. Any time you dress monochromatically, make sure you mix different shades of pink and textures (like chunky knits with silky trousers) to get a more sophisticated-looking monochrome look.

Know YOUR Pink

Know what shades of pink work best with your skin tone. No need to go into color theory or figure out if you’re a spring, summer, autumn, or winter. Don’t make it complicated! All you have to do is hold the color up to your face…If it brightens your face, skin, and eyes, it’s a good shade for you. Yes, it’s that simple.

Mixing Pink Prints

The simplest way to mix pink prints is to wear a pink pattern mixed with a solid pink piece. If you want to tone down the pink, pay attention to the pattern and style the rest of the look with the colors in that pattern. For example, if you’re wearing a white and pink printed blouse, wear either white or pink pants with it.

Add Accessories

When it comes to accessorizing your pink outfits, my suggestion is to let the pink shine, but always add impactful accessories that aren’t too impactful or bold. For jewelry, silver OR gold works but I personally love the look of gold. When it comes to handbags and shoes… when in doubt, go with something neutral or the color of your skin tone! I love to wear a gorgeous white bag or shoes with my pink looks.

  1. More of a question than comment! I have the Magenta Wayf blouse and happen to have perfectly matching magenta pants that are skinny ankle length. Correct me if I am wrong but you mentioned that if you are going for the monochromatic look ,the pinks should be different shades and not the same???? Your feather top
    Looks like it matches your pants perfectly! Advise please! Thank you so much for your posts! Love them!!!!

    1. The feather top does match the pants that I paired it with! You can do the same shade or varying… Try it on together and see if it feels right – it might be just perfect! I can’t get enough pink in my life. So glad you’re here, Vicki! ~Erin xo
