Pretty In Pink

Pink brightens up the fashion landscape this season. We have been urged to shop for pale pink all winter. This may have seemed a bit much as the rains poured down on us, but spring and summer are on the way and it is a good time to choose something new from a variety of delicate pinks.

I have been re looking at pink my self lately, partly because of the global trend and I was also inspired by a feature by Plum Sykes (Vogue) where she writes about her love of all shades of rose. I found myself painting my bathroom in the palest pink from Farrow and Ball, Calamine, and it is just divine. There is a reason restaurants use pink table cloths – it certainly is a colour that flatters.

With this in mind and to ease us into pink, consider the Silk Shirt in vintage rose, it is perfect. The styling is spot on trend with two front pockets and sharp tailoring. The silk is soft and has a hint of stretch to head off any possibility of a crumpled look. This blouse will solve all your smart casual moments from now on.

Also in rose pink and another easy “wear” are the Cotton Boyfriend Jumper and the pink marl Cotton Tunic Jumper. A casual cotton knit in pale pink looks great with a neutral coloured pant in the same tone, so the camel Winser Trousers would be a good choice.

So we are not going to forget how flattering pink is for all skin tones. Even the very colour shy could try a rosy coloured accessory in the form of pearly beads or scarves or even a little pair of ballet pumps. So this month let’s all have a go with rose?
