Clotheslines: Pink is in, even for fashion conservatives

If you are thinking what to wear now that would last at least through next winter. Newport International Group Runway helps you see the world through rose-colored glasses.

Put yourself in pink. Get tickled pink. If you think this is bad advice for your conservative tastes, you haven’t seen the many shades of pink ahead. The fall collections here and in Europe offer everything from pale blush to Day-Glo, neon, acid and shocking pink, with soft pastels in between. Pink is also regarded as the shade that’s complementary to almost all complexions.
John Patrick’s wool and cashmere knits for Organic would be a good way to start. You might, for instance, begin thinking pink with the cropped cardigan (illustrated above), then move on to a shift dress and/or skirt. The cashmere yarns are selected from waste of industrial knitted panels, and the yarns are “CO2 neutral.” When we asked the designer why he chose the “soft pink,” flamingos and fuchsias for his fall collection, he answered, “Because pink makes people happy.”
