The fashion world went wild for hot pink last year, and with the release of the Barbie movie on Friday 21 July, it's back in a big way. If you love wearing hot pink as much as we do, you're in luck as it's all over the high street.
How to style hot pink dresses
The mood-boosting shade flatters every skin tone and is particularly suited to the summer months when we can wear it in the form of statement mini dresses, cut-out figure-hugging styles or floaty midi dresses in lightweight fabrics. A stand out piece on its own, a hot pink dress is surprisingly versatile and easy to accessorise. For parties and formal occasions they can look chic with minimal, barely-there pieces or go all out with bright colour-clashing bags and shoes. If you're going for off-duty dressing, a hot pink mini can be paired with chunky sandals or style a maxi with luxe leather slides.
Celebrities wearing hot pink dresses
Margot Robbie looked incredible in a custom-made hot pink Balmain mini dress for the Barbie premiere in Mexico. The 33-year-old Aussie actress went for an all-pink outfit, styling it with bright Manolo Blahnik pumps. She completed the look with a silver chain belt and matching drop pendant earrings.
It's not just Margot who's fallen hard for the hue, Prince William and Prince Harry's cousin Lady Amelia Windsor demonstrated how to wear a hot pink dress and trainers at the Barbie screening in London.
