Theres a newness in the colour Pink. A colour that was once deemed a bit cheap, yet for the last few seasons it has been consistently showing up on the runway and for SS’17, designers have exemplified a modern approach to the colour. The runway saw a flurry of trophy pieces in everything from Champagne Pink to Pepto Bismol and Magenta hues…and the best thing about this trend?? There doesn’t have to be any rules!
Just take a look at how Balenciaga have cleverly injected hits of the colour throughout the collection-whilst keeping the silhouette strong and powerful with slightly fetish undertones. The power house have proven that workwear can pack a punch just by replacing your White shirt/blouse with any shade of Pink-be it a pale blush ruffled number or a vivid pink silk piece if you’re feeling brave!
It needn’t matter which shade you decide on-whether its the palest peachy shade or a bubblegum candy pink that you loved when you were five, the point is to really embrace this shade, because thats when it makes the most impact.
If you find work doesn’t allow you to do so, or perhaps you feel colour-shy, then drip feed it into your wardrobe. Perhaps a pair of straight-leg velvet pants in a Cameo Pink shade by Masscob would be the perfect addition to your date night-just pair with a crisp white shirt and a sleek heel and you’re guaranteed to have heads turning. Or perhaps an ice-cream pink Denim Jacket from the likes of Bliss and Mischief is what you need to inject a little light-heartedness into your wardrobe for your Sunday stroll?
The easiest way to take the frothiness out of Pink is to work in accessories that are bold and have edge-or wear with flats or sneakers.
I personally love the colour Pink-especially when layered tonally…and paired with a bold Red lip! Valentino pairs a bold Fuchsia Cape Dress with slick Red boots whilst Haider Ackermann shows us how to pair a fluid pink maxi skirt with a casual tee (wear this with a minimal White pump/sneaker for a laid-back style).
Wearing it as a tonal outfit isn’t for everyone, so I’ve put together a few options below – all available on Matchesfashion.com.
