Traditionally in fashion circles pink hasn’t had the kudos that it has earned this season for quite some time. Previously it’s been deemed overtly girly and lacked the cool factor the fash-pack seeks. However the times have changed, my friend, times have changed. Thanks to the likes of Louis Vuitton, Salvatore Ferragamo and Valentino pink is back!
I have read articles and discussions about this trend focusing on the negative. It is fair to say it’s a different turn that may not suit all the fashion savvy females however in times of gloomy economic states there’s no harm in finding new forms of escapism be it in the theatre, a book or what you put on your back.
This time around pink has rocking a more rebellious vibe. Take an androgynous spin on the feminine hue with blazers and tailored shorts. For a pink is punk demonstration try the sweet sensation in leather. Or for those of you that have been waiting for this chance go all out and go girly!
There are different shades of pink to discover though, from sophisticated subtlety to outrageous hot colours. Those that don’t want to be untrue to your own personal style that doesn’t generally incorporate the colour in question, there are so many options both from high end collections and the high street to add some accessories to dip your pinky in the trend. Handbags, jackets, nail polish and also jewellery are indulging themselves in pink. Rose gold has been ever more prominent from chunky watches to elegant rings gold is getting in on the action.
An easy nonchalant look is to combine the colour with an already unavoidable style that is coloured jeans. For evening looks using a block of pink keeps it sophisticated not fussy and can be ideal for summer parties.
Brighter colours are uplifting, and hey… if we all wear happy and vibrant enough hues maybe we will lure the sun back out!
