With Pink tipped as the new look for Spring 2015 it’s easy to conjure Mean Girl connotations of uniformed rules on how to execute the trend, yet this new pink influx presents invitation to go fully editorial and incorperate tailored structure to juxtapose a girly palette.
The secret with styling pink in an elegant way is to go toward construction and balance out any pastels or brights with complimentary contrary shades. With a pastel pink, opt for burgundy to define your outfit, giving sternness to balance out the lightness.
Unless you’re setting a new trend, we’d advise against going head to toe pink, the overabundance of any one hue can be too much in any scenario. Colour block to break up pastels by opting for one or two pink pieces, still getting the effect of the feminine shade without going all-out Barbie.
For a chicer, work friendly look burgundy will settle down the loudness and attention which pink clothing can attract, teamed with a neutral camel on the outer for a more universal result.
Camel Pea Coats like this Glamorous one give effortless sophistication no matter what they are teamed with, allowing easy styling to throw on and go for your big event or soiree.
