Pretty In Pink

Posted In: My Outfits

Very often pink is viewed as saccharine and overly feminine. Not anymore! Pink is having a major make-over. So forget the baby-related images evoked by this shade. It is undoubtedly feminine colour however dusty pink can be extremely sexy and even super chic making a new statement “pretty and powerful in pink”. This season rose quartz is one of two of Pantone’s Colors of the Year so pink is taking over in many collections. So if you want to look trendy this is the colour to wear at the moment.

For me personally pastels always symbolise spring. It feels so refreshing to replace dark and moody shades with lighter hues. And pink particularly screams “Hello Spring!”.

The key to look modern and not overly sweet in pink is to go for a bit masculine pieces. And this is what I did. I chose an over-sized coat and paired it with trousers which instantly added a bit of edge to the outfit.

My favourite piece of the outfit is patent burgundy ankle booties which compliments pink very beautifully but also adds a modern touch. And they are extremely comfortable to walk in.

Where to wear it?

It’s a perfect outfit to run your daily errands, meet your friends or go brunch on weekends.

    Lovely coat, and a really grown up and sophisticated shade of pink. The exact colour I want for my next pair of ski trousers.

    Your right, there is so many ways that you can toughen up pink and it is a great colour to welcome in Spring! FYI I clocked your shoes as the KG £90 ones I have been lusting for but it turns out they are Asos and only 32.99. I have next day delivery and that could prove dangerous lol!

    I absolutely love Rose Quartz right now but I’m too scared to try it out! You do a great job of making it look grown-up and sexy rather than childish or sweet. And I am in love with your bag in this outfit!

      Thank you so much Jodie! You should definitely try! I believe everyone can find the right shade of pink for themselves.

    Your pink outfit stands out against the drab gray of the other people in the background of the photo. Much nicer and brighter!
