Maybe it's just the plethora of Valentine's decorations that are everywhere, but it seems to me that pops of hot pink are becoming ubiquitous. Last Spring I embraced the hot pink lip trend straight from the runways of Jil Sander, Fendi and DVF, and this Spring, I am taking a cue from these street style (and Celine Resort 12) shots that are super-charged with neon pink separates and accessories.

Whether it's a bubblegum beanie (adore the pink & camel combo) or a pair of fuschia wool trousers to stand up to what's left of winter temps, I am eager to incorporate this uber-feminine color into my everyday wardrobe. A pair of hot pink skinnies worn with nautical stripes (above) will be a great transitional look for Spring and the power of that neon crossbody will span the seasons. 

By the way, I still love a super-pigmented pink pout, and it looks even better paired with a pink shirt, pants or shift, as perfected in this vintage photo of Jackie O, below.
