Kate Hudson showed off her slick styling skills while visiting the Late Show With David Letterman yesterday, donning not one, but two hot-pink looks. The gorgeous actress radiated as she entered the studios wearing a slightly more casual Michael Kors bright pink knit top, black leather pencil skirt, and white Christian Louboutin pumps. And on her way out, Kate made a quick change into a more evening-appropriate ensemble in a black Barbara Bui long-sleeved, drop-waist dress paired with suede pink pumps. Even if you're not a typical "hot pink" kind of girl, Kate proved that just a pop goes a long way. Read below for more easy styling tips, then shop similar pieces below.
- Since hot pink is enough of a statement on its own, make sure to accessorize with minimal jewels and simple shoes, like stud earrings and pointy-toe pumps or flats.
- Balance out the girlie hot-pink hue with a little leather; we love how Kate incorporated the subversive texture into both of her looks.
- Since you want your hot-pink accents to stand out, stay away from complicated cuts and opt for cleaner silhouettes and lines, like simple pencil skirts or classic-cut blouses.
