Pink is a real power color for several Real Housewives pals. So, if you think the color stands for sweetness and innocence alone, you're in for a rose-colored style lesson. Below, clock how Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fashion fans Lisa Vanderpump and Erika Girardi, Real Housewives of Dallas dog lover Kameron Westcott, and Real Housewives of New York cocktail mogul Bethenny Frankel use pink to look like total boss ladies. Then, go ahead: flesh out your wardrobe with some bubblegum-hued pieces of your own.
For Lisa Vanderpump, life is famously all about diamonds and rosé. The SUR owner is completely besotted with all things blushing, and uses the color pink to highlight her fabulously fashionable looks. Even if she's not wearing a monotone look, she selects patterned pieces that contain flattering shades of pink — and she loves to see the world through rose-colored glasses.
It's not all bubblegum pink for Lisa, though. The animal-lover has been known to wear deep shades of hot pink — to quite fierce effect, we might add. She often pairs the rich color with black, to let the dark pink pop.
And even if she's wearing head-to-toe black, Lisa ties in — or ties on — a little pink. Her pastel travel scarf really brightens up this jet-setting look.
Lisa's fellow Beverly Hills resident Erika Girardi also uses pink accessories to make a black outfit pop — and draw attention from adorable friends.
When Erika Girardi steps into character as Erika Jayne, she uses a bustier trimmed in hot-pink leather — and a bedazzled pair of pink-leather boots — to channel her alter-ego's fierceness. Extra props for the pretty, frosty pink eye shadow.
And when she wants a softer look, Erika relies on statement pieces in rose-gold hues. She also knows that pale pink lipsticks flatter her gorgeous pout.
Kameron Westcott loves pink so much, she based her latest business off of it. (Pink dog food is the adorable luxury we never knew we needed — till now!) When the Dallas-based mom dresses up in her black-tie best, she looks like a rose in bloom. Also, how cute is her phone case?
When the occasion calls for cocktail attire, Kameron puts a sparkly spin on her signature hue. Check out the dress she wore to the glittering Sparkle Dog Food launch party.
And even when she's sipping cocktails poolside, Kameron covers her bathing suit with this embroidered, pink confection.
And if you really want to go all out, find a room filled with pillowy pink furniture, toss on a pink fur jacket, and step into the most body-con, watermelon-hued dress you can find. The formula certainly works for Bethenny.
Forget Wednesdays. We want to wear pink every day.
