Pink is one of this autumn winter’s on-trend colours. But how do you do the pink trend without looking like the sugar plum fairy, or your four-year-old daughter gone wrong? Pink can be a difficult colour to wear, but it can also be very pretty, and flattering, or full-on and in your face – in a good way!
Try and layer pink – pink skirt with a pink jumper, pink coat with a pink dress, to make the most of this pink trend. Simply throwing on a pink cardigan will not suffice! Pink shoes are a nod to the trend, but try and wear a bit more pink than just one thing to get the full fashion effect of this season’s pink trend.
Pink is great during the day, but can look a little, well, girlie, and not so sophisticated in the evening. You don’t want to look like you are off to your teenager’s high school prom, do you? So work the pink trend in the evening with accessories, or sophisticated frocks, ideally wth embellishment, and in bold colours, or muted shades.
Pink looks great in simple shapes – 1950s style skirts, with a sweater, a structured bag and some pink jewels – perfect pink trend work!

If you really struggle with pale pink, try fuchsia – bold, bright and perfect in a coat, or a winter knit. Team it with pale pink for a full on pink trend look from head to toe, but make the pieces more edgy – trainers, a slouchy top and jeans will make this look pink, but not overly cute.
