Stick it to the pink! | Fashion

     Never a girly girl, the colour pink had previously always alluded me. I had always wanted to become Avril Lavigne (her classic 2004 look of course), from the wannabe punk to the teenage emo phase; all side fridges and myspace poses. I was ‘cool’, or ‘edgy’, (or ‘a sheep‘).
     So imagine my surprise when the elusive pink trend began to pop up on my Instagram and I was quickly enamored. The ornate nature of pastels to whimsical OTT fuschia, my online shopping baskets were quickly filled with all shades Barbie.
   Pink was a prominent trend throughout the catwalks (maybe as a way for us Brits to remember colours?). Chanel threw pink about in its Cuba-inspired resort collection, whereas both Topshop LFW AW’17 runway and Célines 2017 Spring collection used the shade as a form of visual Prozac – It just makes me so happy!
     So, how can you actually wear this statement colour?Instead of buying a whole new wardrobe, you can just invest in a STATE.MENT. PIECE. aka those fricking beautiful Gucci wallpaper flats or Zara’s long pastel coatHowever, most of my edit is focussed on accessories. Accessories are the easiest way to sneak a pop of colour and elevate your look ready for spring (as seen in my Kenzo edit!).  If you need some more inspiration, Gregory Robert is the poster boy for wearing head-to-toe pink in a wearable way.
