It’s not just on Wednesday’s that we wear pink, in Spring we wear pink. 2016 will see the colour transform your wardrobe.
I used to envision the colour pink as a tacky colour that did nothing for my skin tone. But I have to admit that this year I’ve developed a deep love for rose, blush and watermelon shades of pink. I find myself looking out for sleeveless tops and mini skirts in these sorts of shades and finding the right shade that you feel comfortable in is so important with strong colours like pink and yellow.
It will be an interesting move to start pairing your pink clothing with chartreuse or mauve tones of purple in varied textures to give your shades of pink some attitude and a punch of originality.
I recently bought this blush tone pink bomber jacket from ASOS and yes weeks later I’m still obsessing over it! I’m finding it difficult to find light- medium shades of pink that make me feel feminine but aren’t too much for my daytime image. I usually really like simplicity and sleekness when wearing the colour pink but this bomber jacket is a touch of street style with an extra bit of glamour by the use of the colour (that would be complimentary to anyone’s skin tone). I teamed it with a scalloped collar white shirt just because the colour white brings the jacket to a spring update and it gave me a modern ladylike look. Also it’s a style that looks good with white trainers, sandals and a cross body bag and so much more, I just need to experiment more with it.
I won’t be just doing the street look with this jacket I’ll be teaming it with feminine dresses and shorts to give those outfits the modern cool factor, the arms are slightly oversized which makes any style look effortless and gives a trendy street style.
The key to hitting the nail on the head with the colour pink is that you need to trial different hues and sample full outfits in this colour by clashing tones or working the co-ord vibe. Maybe all you need to do is buy a statement hot pink lipstick or a peachy- pink mac to cut yourself a slice of the seasons favourite tone. Often, you don’t need lots of clothes in one colour you just need one or two statement pieces that can be easily remixed with simple items. If in doubt when shopping, think PINK!
