October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which means all month long, there will be numerous events inspiring the fight against cancer and celebrating those who have won the battle, Whether it's formal or fitness, pink the color of the season. So I've got one hot pink look from local boutiques and brands that's perfect for the occasion as you stand by your grandmother, mother, sister or friend and show your support in the fight against breast cancer.

A hot pink playsuit is just what every super femme gal needs. Since we're celebrating women and going all out girly, why not throw in some playful tights with a bow back seam, right? Finish with a great buckle-strapped sexy pump and Sugar & Spice blushing necklace or wrist wrap-in-one from Chicago designer Nicki Jean Jewelry, and you'll be all about girl power.—Suzanne Kopulos
