This October, we’re thinking pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month with the year’s best commemorative products.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, and, according to Susan G. Komen, an estimated 232,030 cases will be diagnosed this year in the U.S. Support breast cancer research, education, treatment and more by snagging any of these chic products that look good and do good. (You can also make a donation to support the fight against breast cancer here.)
Show your #pinkpower by rocking these limited-edition fashion pieces and beauty products year-round (we’ve even got a few kitchen appliances that will help blend and mix for a cure).
Add a fun pop of color to any outfit with this printed silk scarf (pictured above), which was created in honor of the Anne Klein commitment to the cause. Anne Klein will make an individual donation of $50,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (independent of sales).
Tote your essentials with this beautiful work bag made from scratch-resistant pink leather. This fun carryall fits a 15-inch laptop, other small electronic devices, keys, paperwork and even an extra pair of shoes.
