Whoever thought that wearing pink would turn out to be so non-stereotypically feminine? Thanks to the new age and times we live in, pink is has become that colour that brightens up any outfit, lifts the mood and in all, a cool colour to wear. It has always been associated with being a colour to show the female gender, to be very girly and cute.
Fashion trends, influential people and street stylers have used and worn the colour pink in a certain way that to add a touch of personality to any outfit for any gender. It can be worn in many ways and for any season.
When looking at the fashion shows from the previous season (spring/summer 2020), pink was unexpected popular on the catwalk especially within menswear for designers such as Dior, Louis Vuitton and Balmain. Baby pink and fuschia were heavily used, either head to toe or on its own. Marco de Vincenzo, Ralph & Russo & Alexander McQueen amongst others, also used pinks within womenswear (bubblegum, hot pink and blush).
For men, wearing a baby/salmon pink is an interesting shade. A jacket or hoodie in this colour, teamed with a white shirt underneath for a smart street look, a polo-neck for a clean look or a T-shirt for a simple throw on vibe. This paired with either jeans, tailored trousers or joggers… always with trainers, comfort is a must.
For women, pink is an all rounder. It can be worn head to toe or matched with an accessory. Wearing two or three different shades of pink in the same outfit creates a tonal look or wearing different fabric textures of the same tone of pink will help balance out an outfit. For example a silky maxi slim fit dress with a sheer high neck long sleeve top, heels and a bag. For a dressed down look, a matching co-ord blazer and shorts or skirt with a simple top, trainers and minimal accessories.
