Wearing outfits in one colour is very on-trend right now, and ‘all-pink’ outfits are some of the most popular choices of many fashion influencers for SS17. The colour pink might be seen as what 5-year-olds dress their dolls in, but it’s actually had a brand new make-over and even though it may seem daunting at first, it isn’t so difficult to incorporate it into your everyday wardrobe.
If bright colours aren’t your thing, there are a huge array of pink and off-pink shades available on the high street this season. It has never been easier to get your hands on this season’s hottest shade. You don’t have to go all out, as you can merge the trend into your outfits with some simple accessories. Starting off small, Ray Ban have an option where you can choose reflective pink lenses for the majority of their frames. Or, if you live in your trainers, why not have a look at these Nike Roche Two Casual shoes for an effortless twist on an everyday classic. Pale/ dusty-pink handbags and shoes are easy to accessorise your outfits with, as they are softer than white, and therefore not as harsh and likely to get dirty. They’re also better for summer than black and can be worn with a simple summer dress without looking too harsh. Also, pale coloured shoes lengthen the legs, so wearing blushed pink is a win-win.
Last year saw biker jackets take off in a big way, and the trend isn’t over yet. Last year Zara brought out a range of faux-leather jackets and you couldn’t walk down the street without seeing one – you know which one I mean! This year, they are back, but have been brought out in a faux-suede range in the same style with lighter colours. The jackets come in a range of different light and dark colours, but my favourite is the dusty pink. However, every time I looked to see if they had it in stock they have been sold out, and so I have found this version from Bershka that is almost the same, and a little bit cheaper!
Pink doesn’t always have to be girly. The grunge trend is huge right now and there are so many designers who have mixed the two trends together. Now we are seeing a mix of grunge and pink in all our high-street stores. For example, this Pull and Bear sweatshirt really nails the pink and frills trend but not in a sweet, girly way. This jumper is not for the faint-hearted, but would without a doubt add a bit of flare to your look, whilst still being comfortable and wearable.
Also, this trend is not just for women – it’s 2017 and girls can wear blue so why can’t men wear pink too? After Yeezy season 3, we saw a huge rise of pinks in men’s high-street stores. For example this River Island pink denim jacket is easy to wear and would look great on any man who is wanting a look outside the box whilst also adding a bit of colour to his every day wardrobe staples.
