Since fashion week shows take place several months before their design inspirations appear on store racks, there is plenty of time to plan for style ideas. If you’re anything like us, you’ve been dreaming of spring fashion for several weeks now, curating Pinterest boards, marking magazines and saving Instagram posts of the styles and trends that you look forward to wearing once the collections are released. One of the major trends we’ve been spotting for spring 2017 is pastel pinks. In the past, this shade has been associated with styles that felt too girlish and cutesy, but not this season! At the spring 2017 runway shows everyone from Chloé to Céline and Valentino were thinking pink, with sophisticated styles and edgy elements. Below we’ve shared a few of our favourite ways to rock the pastel pink fashion trend for the spring/summer 2017 season.
A sexy element of surprise
We love how this blouse has a classic appearance from the front and an effortlessly sexy look in the back. Layer with a camisole for the workday and let the back lie open for a night out on the town.
Shades of pink
For those who prefer to keep their wardrobe in neutral territory, sunglasses are a perfect way to incorporate a colour trend into your ensemble. These bubble-gum-hued sunnies were designed in a 1960’s cat-eye style, as an homage to Audrey Hepburn’s style.
Put your pink foot forward
We plan to step into spring on trend in these blush-toned leather boots. With intricate patterns cascading the front and a wooden heel, these boots have just the right blend of casual and cosmopolitan style. Wear them with a flowy dress, or your favourite jeans, either way, all eyes will be on your feet in these beauties.
A coat of pink
Typically, we aren’t thrilled to purchase outerwear after spending months in thick winter coats, but when a jacket like this comes along, we can make an exception. This pastel trench has a timeless appearance that feels both relaxed and polished. Wrap the cascading collar to the side and remove the waist tie for a seamless transition from warm afternoons to cool evenings.
Whether you have always been a fan of the pretty in pink look, or you’re just dipping your toe in the rose-coloured pool, the options are endless for incorporating this trend into your closet this spring/summer!
