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