If there was any doubt which colour would dominate our autumn wardrobes, the Grammys' red carpet made it crystal clear: hot pink is big news.

From Saweetie's two-piece Valentino outfit and Chrissy Teigen's Nicole + Felicia Couture, to Justin Bieber's beanie, and Travis Barker's oversized coat, celebs showed the only way to wear pink is hot, hot, hot.

Wear it right

Wear hot pink right, and it looks great.

Wear it wrong, and you're getting dangerously close to Barbie territory.

Follow these tips:

  • Wear it with black or navy to make it look sophisticated

  • Add accessories such as a coat, bag or hat if you don't want to go pink head to toe

  • Go for streamlined cuts so it looks modern
