With brighter days on the horizon, it’s time for lighter shades to take centre stage, and few colours say Spring like a hint of pink. However, many of us eschew the hue, afraid of it looking too young, too prim or too feminine. We say it’s time to reintroduce it to your wardrobe – from beautiful dusky rose to powder pinks and blush.
1. All in the accessories
Not quite ready to take the plunge? Test out the trend by investing in beautiful rose-tinted accessories. A floaty, feminine scarf is the perfect match for this soft romantic shade, while a cross-body bag also makes a great option – and adds a hint of colour to neutral outfits.
2. Pale and interesting
With the days finally getting longer, it’s time to leave the darker tones of Winter behind us. Pairing blush pink and classic white together will give any outfit an instant Spring update. We recommend teaming a pair of white jeans with our Elbow Patch Jumper for a contemporary look you can wear now and later.
3. A layered look
Dispel the myth that pink hues are reserved for teenagers by opting for a thought-out, layered look. Try pairing lighter shades, such as our Essential T-shirt in pale pink, with stronger, richer tones (this dusky-rose cardigan is perfect). The contrast of colours keeps it grown up (and practical on cooler days). Just keep hair and make-up simple for a less-is-more approach.
4. Borrowed from the boys
Why just try one trend when you can test two? From jackets to cargo pants, utilitarian pieces are a must this Spring. The juxtaposition of more masculine silhouettes with feminine dusty pink works perfectly, and adds a modern twist. Embrace khaki trousers, in lieu of denim, to team with delicate knits as a starting point.
