how to wear pinkIt's the perfect time to embrace this pop hue in your cupboard.

What comes to your mind when you hear 'PINK'?

Maybe just the colour that defines beauty and femininity.... and a hot favourite hue in every woman's wardrobe?

Or this year's Bollywood movie starring Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, Andrea Tariang and Kirti Kulhari that revolves around women?

Well, this oh-so-girly shade has now found a new reason to be talked about.

PINK features in the Rs 2,000 note.

And that makes the sweet, flirtatious tint much in demand now.

Just like the note, do you want to give your style a pink makeover?

Presenting 11 ways to wear PINK in style...
