The latest trend in Australian pink is to wear a range of pink clothing that includes clothing, jewellery and jewellery accessories, a new study suggests.
The report, released on Wednesday by the Women’s Business and Human Rights Commission (WBHLRC), shows that while women’s clothing is still seen as a niche item, more women are choosing to wear it.
The survey, commissioned by the WBHLRC, found that women aged 15 to 29 are the most likely to wear clothing in pink.
The study also showed that the proportion of women aged 25 to 34 who wear pink jewellery is significantly higher than women aged 55 to 64.
The new trend in Australia is also reflected in other countries, with the highest proportion of pink jewelled clothing in the UK and Australia.
The number of women who wear jewelled or pink jewelling has increased dramatically since the 1970s, when it was still seen more as a fashion accessory for the working class, and then as a symbol of feminine style.
In 2017, women made up 42% of all jewellery sales in Australia.
In contrast, jewelled women made less than one-third of all jewelry sales in 2017.
In 2016, the number of men who wear white clothing had fallen to a low point, and in 2017 it was down to 14%.
But the report found that the trend for women in pink has remained strong, and has seen an increase in the number who wear it on a regular basis.
According to the WBFLC, more than three quarters of women in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s wear pink clothes.
In the last year, the average age at which women in that age group are wearing pink clothing has increased from 20.9 years to 23.3 years.
This is up from 20 years ago, the study said.
The proportion of young women wearing pink has also increased.
In 2011, the WBRLRC found that around one in 10 young women in Australia were wearing pink, compared with one in nine young women a decade earlier.
However, the report showed that this increase was not mirrored by a decline in the proportion who were wearing white clothes, as the proportion wearing pink clothes also increased in that same time.
