If you have all the clothes you need, you could have a look for pink jewelry as this is also a trendy way of adding colorful accents to your everyday style. If you have short hair, consider a pair of pink pearl earrings, for example, or brightly pink stud earrings, as these will add a subtle touch of color without overpowering your outfit.
