Play it Cool in Pink

Eye popping, mood enhancing and downright fun, the IT colour of the 21’ A/W season is bubble-gum pink! A stark departure from neutral tones and minimalist palettes, this bright defining shade of the months ahead equals a fun filled make over for your wardrobe! 

I promise it won’t be hard. Just requires a few tips & tricks to work pink into your off-duty wardrobe. Let’s talk shades for a moment, the ‘pink’ trend isn’t only defined to bubble gum shades, but also include pastels, hot pinks and ombre tones. 

In this week’s blogpost, I’ve turned my attention to a bold bubble gum pink blazer to inject some life and colour into my satured Summer wardrobe. Styled for an off-duty weekend outfit, this statement making blazer is Ideal for the trans-seasonal weather.

Start by opting for a bright shade of blazer to rule out any confusion between corporate wear and casual wear. Generally the black & cream blazers are reserved for the office only, so try a vibrant shade for the days off.

Stores such as Zara and H & M offer a great range of eye popping shades to set the tone for your wardrobe (and if pink isn’t your thing there are plenty of other tones to try). 

The Best Foot Forward Blazer that I am wearing is available from Portmans in the shade of Flamingo. Designed for a structured fit this blazer offers a polished finish with gold button detail and is fully lined. 

Next, team your blazer with either a pair of paper bag shorts or a slimline jean for an effortless off duty look. In keeping with a fun light vibe I opted to pair these white shorts with the blazer. The combination of cool shades and splashes of bright tones make for a joyful outfit.

When pairing tops underneath the blazer, I chose this floral ribbed off the shoulder top for an ultimate feminine finish. The hint of floral pattern compliments the lighter shades and works in well with the look.

Finish off your look with some fun accessories and look at teaming a sneaker style shoe with your outfit for a touch of street style.

Drape a cross body bag over your outfit and your look is fashion ready. The next time your wardrobe needs a fun change, think pink!
