October is breast cancer awareness month, and we are putting this out as an ode for all the strong women that have passed away and those still fighting through. FashionGHANA.com is showing our solidarity with pink. What is even more eye-opening is in the previous month prior to October, a large number of style influencers have been serving pink and purple so despite the coincidence it was impossible for us to avoid bringing you the colors
PURPLE IN FASHION
Although purple may not be such a very popular color in the world of fashion it is definitely far from unpopular. According to colorbux.com ‘In the world of advertising and fashion, the color purple is seen as a soothing and vibrant color and usually symbolizes luxury as well as the expression of femininity in women.’
PINK IN FASHION
And even more so, all hope will never be lost as purple is only a darker shade away from pink which is the most gender-coded color in the world of fashion. Pink stands as a symbol of femininity cementing a pervasive ideal color for girls.
So simply, purple is just a more stern tone of femininity hence why both colors work like a charm when together and even when not.
STYLE INFLUENCERS ARE ALREADY PINKING AND PURPLING
Recently we notice a surge of some of our favorite style influencers purpling and pinking on their social media platforms. And as we approach the summer harmattan season it might be a great indication of feminine empowerment and solidarity for Breast Cancer awareness month!
‘People wear pink ribbons or pink, in general, to honor survivors, remember those lost to the disease, and to support the progress we are making together to defeat breast cancer.’ – Cancer.org
It is definitely a time for women to own it and that may just be what we are seeing with the new looks. Check out the purple looks style influencers on the internet have blessed us with.
