Think Pink for SS17

The trend I am most excited for this coming season is the colour pink 💗💓💕 💖💘.The SS17 Catwalk was festooned with all sorts shades from deep fuchsia at Topshop Unique and Hermes, pale pastels at Celine, powder-puff pink at Molly Goddard, candy floss hues at Shrimps, shiny sequins at House of Holland, ballerina pink at Bora Aksu and striking contrasts at Valentino.  SO MUCH PINK 😍CelineHermesHouse of HollandMolly GoddardValentinoValentinoValentinoBora AksuIt is therefore definitely the moment to take advice from Maggie Prescott in Funny Face  and 'banish the black, burn the blue and bury the beige' and 'Think Pink!'.pinkI really do love a head-to-toe pink outfit, although it is very difficult to pull off, unless you are a character in a Hollywood film:

For date night, a pink tiara is a must

Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's

The off-duty look, bubblegum is the ultimate pink accessory

Pink Lady Didi Conn as Frenchy in Grease

Dressing up for the Office, a pink twin set and don't forget your hat

Natalie Portman as Jackie Onassis in Jackie

Off to afternoon tea, the pink ruffle dress (comes with matching hat)

Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady

That night out on the town, pink fish tail dress and long gloves

Marilyn Monroe as Lorelei in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

First day of term - tiny dog wearing matching pink jumper, check.

Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde

And for the big occasion, only a full length pink fur coat and matching up-d0, will do.

Shirley Maclaine as Louisa May Foster in What a Way to GoSo in Hollywood Land, head-to-toe pink is completely acceptable, but in reality it is pretty hard to pull off - I would love to wander around looking like Shirley Maclaine in What a Way to Go but I think, sadly, these outfits need to be kept in the fancy dress box, or just left to the likes of Katy Perry, Lady GaGa, Grayson Perry and Barbie.But pink is so fun, and and as the high street is about to be awash with the stuff, now is the time to incorporate, even just a tiny pop of it into your wardrobe.  And you definitely want to be clashing your pink with red. So below are some ideas and I hope you have happy pink shopping 😍.Alice xxx 💓💗💖💕b53de4f78b9cd23b69b1393b7987bcc4-2
