Trend of the Week: Prepare to embrace pink

One colour, so many moods; Annmarie O'Connor prepares us to embrace pink.

Inspiration:

From ladylike Mamie Eisenhower to fashionable Jackie 0; the coquettishness of Marilyn Monroe and the eye-catching signature of Elsa Schiaparelli, the colour pink has as many progenitors as it does iterations.

This season’s Pantone offering is no different. From punchy fuchsia to sweet blossom; skin-tone perfect coral to the less diffident and oh-so-different beetroot purple, the future is so bright, you’ll want to wear every shade.

Trend of the Week: Prepare to embrace pink

Style Notes:

  • Suits you: Tap into the tailored two-piece trend in a dusky shade of barely-there pink.
  • Well paired: Team pink with ribald red, gentle seafoam green or anchor in earthy brown.
  • Toughen Up: Not fond of frou-frou? Opt for meatier magenta or pair prettier pieces like dresses and blouses with tread sole boots and oversized jackets.
  • True to form: For pink purists, try trending prairie dress with augmented sleeves and ruffle hem.
  • Trend of the Week: Prepare to embrace pink
