This October, style stars are taking notes from princess of pink Elle Woods in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Designers like Chanel, Public School and Just Cavalli incorporated fuchsia into their autumn ready-to-wear collections with structured midi skirts, oversized trench coats and glossy lace-up ankle booties, respectively. Even local Instagram queen Rosie Clayton twirled in a hot pink butterfly-sleeved dress from ASOS, and Jenn Lake of Style Charade strutted downtown in a multi-colored lace dress with electric pink heels from Kate Spade. Whether you’re sporting it as high fashion or street style, this vibrant shade is pink ribbon-approved.
