Pink is an aesthetic that relates to the color pink. It, like many of the colors, can tie into multiple aesthetics.

Pink is a pale tint of red that is named after a flower of the same name. It was first used as a color name in the late 17th century. Pink was not a common color in the fashion of the Middle Ages; nobles usually preferred brighter reds, such as crimson. However, it did appear in women's fashion, and in religious art.[1]

In optics, the word "pink" can refer to any of the pale shades of colors between bluish red to red in hue, of medium to high lightness, and of low to moderate saturation. Although pink is generally considered a tint of red, the colors of most tints of pink are slightly bluish, and lie between red and magenta. A few variations of pink, such as salmon color, lean toward orange.[1]
