Hello everyone! I hope you’ve all had a lovely week so far. I have been working on this trend driven post for the last few days. Pink is key colour this Spring as are bell sleeves and ruffles. While they are everywhere at the minute not everyone may know how to wear them. Have a read and let me know what you think.
It’s time to leave your preconceptions at the door – pink is the colour of the season! From palest blush to dusky hues, the sugary shade has had a fashion-forward makeover for this season and it’s even set to convert pink sceptics. Those who fear pink is too girlie will be hard pushed not to fall in love with the latest offerings. Pink tones are no longer just for bridesmaids and the Elle Woods of the world, that’s for sure.
This season pink pieces are all about a streamlined approach with slick tailoring, nipped in waists and excessive detail in the form of bows and appliqué.

If you’re going to buy just one pink piece this season, make it a coat of some sort. It is the statement piece of the season after all. The question people are probably thinking is whether pink will overtake black as the party colour code of choice. Will fans of LBD’s be tempted to go for something pink come the festive season? Who knows! I for one wouldn’t have a problem with that.
As for pink workwear, whoever said that you can’t wear pink to the office may want to take that back. While you don’t want to turn up looking like an Irish version of Elle Woods, this season’s dusky shades are as professional as you could hope for. I would team pink with light grey tones, white and black.
Afraid of committing to pink? Accessories are a great way to buy into the look without committing too much. From dusty pink hats and fluffy pompom key rings to simple belts and suedette chokers; they will give an instant shot of colour to a muted outfit.
Finally, when it comes to adding the finishing touches to your pink looks, I think mixing it up is a must. Don’t go too girlie by styling your hair in plaits or tight curls – a sleek ponytail or wearing it poker straight will give you the edge you’re looking for.
Hopefully you’re now ready to give pink a shot. This is coming from a person that wears black almost every day of the week – if I can give it a try so can you! 😛
