HOW TO: WEAR PINK22.04.16
This season sees the most feminine colour in the spectrum – pink – shift into focus. Imagined in everything from soft petal shades to a deeper, dusky iteration, it takes on a wholly sophisticated guise that makes colour ever more approachable. Whether you’re confident enough to fully embrace the look or want to experiment by taking a subtle approach to the trend, we’ve compiled a look to suit.
HEAD TO TOE: For the fashion confident
The most fashion-forward way to embrace the style set’s current favourite hue is by wearing it from head to toe. For chic simplicity, choose a pink dress with an aura of effortlessness about it. Relaxed-fitting styles work best and safari-inspired detailing offers additional toughness. The Arizona captures exactly that, with its rose-pink hue softening uniform design traits. To master the tone-on-tone look and avoid looking too considered, try shoes and accessories in softer, blush-pink or nude shades. Suede styles will bring a touch of luxury to the look whilst barely-there make-up will keep things natural.
THE HERO PIECE: For instant style credentials
The statement coat has long since held its reputation as the ultimate fuss-free way to make a style statement and, when shrugged on over daytime staples, colour-pop pieces really make an impact. Why not use this time-tested technique as a way of working pink into your wardrobe for spring? The Manhattan trench coat is loaded with throw-on-and-go appeal thanks to its fluid silhouette and minimalistic detailing, so layer it over a simple T-shirt and suede shorts for chic weekend look that works around the clock.
THE NOD TO THE TREND: To ease you in gently
If you’re not convinced that you want to wear pink from head to toe or make a strong statement with your colour choice, there are much more approachable options that will reference the trend without it being the main focus of the look. The West top is the kind of style that you can wear anywhere, and it comes in a soft petal hue that’s subtle yet relevant. By pairing it with your go-to skinny jeans and mules, you’ll work the look in an understated way.
THE CONTEMPORARY TAKE: For occasion season
A shot of colour can instantly lift the mood of an outfit and the grey Marina suit has a subtle pink check running through it that gives it a contemporary spin. This two-piece is deemed strictly out of office when teamed with towering platform heels, so bookmark it for one of summer’s events to take a modern approach to occasionwear.
THE LAYERED LOOK: For changeable weather
Petal-inspired shades go beyond soft and delicate when piled high and make for a considered take on conventional separates. Try layering a fluid jacket over a same-tone knit – the combination will give your look a statement edge and soften modern monochrome. Wear it to ground a printed skirt or shorts and add a colour-pop bag or shoes to really up the impact.
