Colours we love… Pink

18 May 2017

If you’re looking for a quick, wardrobe update this season, picking something in pink is a great shout!

Dubbed The Colour of the Season, pink – and all its wonderful, varied shades – is the colour to be seen in this summer, and that’s just fine with us!

We LOVE pink! Surprisingly easy to wear – there is a shade to suit every skin tone – and easy to style, pink is a great colour to try out this season. What’s more, it can make you look younger (yes, really!)

Some folks shy away from pink, believing it’s too shouty, too strong, too difficult to style, which is sad, as it is a fantastic hue with loads of potential.

Still not convinced? Then let us show you how…

 

Summer shades

Whether the sun shines or not, pink is perfect for summer. Delicious, sorbet shades and exotic corals, added to fresh, everyday basics, will instantly freshen up all your weekend outfits. Our pretty, 100% Cotton Pointelle Sweater in pink marl is almost good enough to eat, and our new, Linen & Cotton Shift Dress in coral is perfect for pink-ifying your holiday style!

Subtle or standout?

Play it safe in an ultra-wearable, pale shade of pink (complementary to all skin tones), or strike out in a strong, fuchsia-like shade. The choice is yours! How bold will you go? Our Cashmere & Cotton V Neck Jumper in blush pink is ideal for anyone trying pink for the first time, and our new, Summer Cashmere Centre Seam Jumper in Shocking Pink is a sure-fire way to get noticed this season!
