Granted, it’s deeply intertwined with Barbie, and that problematic association isn’t going anywhere (fast). But, don’t let that hold you back. So, take charge of the boardroom because this is how to wear pink like a fully-grown woman.
Laugh Off The Haters
The easiest way to introduce a new trend or colour to your wardrobe is through the accessories, like your handbag, your shoes, a lacy bra strap, a faux fur shawl. But, if you want to get to second base with this new trend, or in this case shade, you invest in a statement jacket, or say a pair of on-beat trouser. However, if you’re Daisy Keens and you don’t care for second, or even third, base you go all the way and douse yourself in it. She’s skilfully balanced a sharp silhouette – courtesy of some Topshop tailoring – with texture, like her Charlotte Simone scarf and velvet booties.
Zero Pain, All Gain
We can’t move without seeing millennial pink right now, but don’t let that stop you from putting this hue in the hot seat. Try it like journalist Alya Mooro and add a slick of patent to a comfy bubblegum tracksuit.
Reveal Your Wild Side
Give a sheer top and dusty pink trackpants a racy makeover with the peek-a-boo of a leopard print bra, like Olive Faye Smith did. While we rate her extra pose, it’s not totally necessary to pulling off this look.
Throw Some Shade
How do you tone down a hot pink ruffle dress? Sunglasses, obviously. When it doubt, act like Anna Wintour and throw some shade at the situation. Also, kudos to Irene Agbontaen for breaking out a name necklace like it’s 2002 and Carrie Bradshaw is still prancing around on TV.
Make The Instagram Likers Wink
Felicity Hayward is a master when it comes to setting up a shot. Just look at her location, it’s the ideal backdrop for this bombshell moment. She’s got the right nude nails, blush phone case and pooling silk wrap dress to ensure this is no girlish folly. This is the grown-up way to wear pink.
