Beat the winter blues for good and say goodbye to seasonal affective disorder as the new season is awash with a sea of pink. This sartorially sweeping shade of the season was prominent in both Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 collections as designers showcased their refreshing take on the posh, pretty palette that's grown-up, not girly. Pink's modern allure is sans preciousness and delicately delivered with a new ladylike purity. From balletic blush and bubblegum, powder and petal pink, and all sweet shades in between, give your wardrobe a pink pick-me-up this season and the one coming.
