In the Market Report by Marilyn Kirschner

Cheap Thrills: Positively ‘Shocking’!

If you’ve been reading my ongoing “Cheap Thrills” column, you already know the drill. For those who may be checking this out for the first time, read on.

High fashion undeniably comes with astronomically high prices. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t bargains to be found. And who amongst us doesn’t love a bargain? Once again, I have reprised my "Cheap Thrills" column; selecting a number of items in the market, I show their high priced version along with their (far) less expensive doppelganger (in most cases, they are a fraction of the cost of the originals).

For this edition, I wanted to specifically focus on shocking pink (accessories and ready-to-wear). Unless you are living under a rock, you already know that pink is THE color for spring 2018 based on the runways thus far. It has showed up almost everywhere, in every incarnation, and in every imaginable shade from the palest to the boldest (Milan is now under way as I am writing this). I myself, am always taken with shocking pink (otherwise known as fuchsia or magenta). It’s a great accent color, mixing well with black, white, tan, brown, khaki, emerald green, yellow, or red; and it is statement making on its own.
