50 Shades of Pink

17.6.15


Pink is a pale red color, which takes its name from the flower of the same name. According to surveys in Europe and the United States image, pink is positively associated with love, beauty, charm, politeness, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, childhood, femininity, and the romantic. When combined with violet or black, it is associated with eroticism and seduction. Pink was first used as a color name in the late 17th century.


If you ask a woman at a cocktail party what her favorite color is and she replies, "Pink!" she is likely telling you more about herself than if she replied, "Orange image!" While it's possible that the pink lady just loves shades on the red spectrum, we, as a society, have a ton of associations around the color. You’d be reasonable to expect that she’s trying to say that she is traditionally feminine and likes party dresses, roses on Valentine’s Day, babies, and kittens.


But let’s step away from this bizarre cocktail party where fully grown adults are quizzed on their favorite colors (mine is periwinkle!). We should, instead, examine why pink is considered a "girly" color , whereas pretty much every other color, except blue, is without gender association. Or, really, any associations at all.


It's practically engrained in us since birth: pink is for girls and blue is for boys. But has the color pink always been considered "girly"? Not really image. For most of history, pink was just another color. It was worn equally by men and women. Men and women continued to wear pink well into the '20s, though pink had come to be seen as a flashy and flamboyant color on men. 


Do you consider pink a feminine color Or does the shade have absolutely nothing to do with gender

  16. I love this dress. :3
    In a way I kind of do consider pink to be a girly colour. It is just what I immediatly think when I see a pink dress or pink eyeshadow. I associate it with being female.
    That being said, I don't really care if a guy wears pink.

  33. Hi Julie,
    I love pink! My style is more androgyny and I usually wear a neutral shades but I wear a bright pink lipstick and lots of my belonging is pink. For me pink is a power symbol, the courage to wearing something associated with tenderness and sweetness( and sometimes weakness) in hyper masculines world :))

    I love your sheer dress, is so pretty and unique♡
